Rangers boss, Giovanni Van Bronckhorst, has confirmed a fresh injury blow to winger Tom Lawrence ahead of their Champions League clash with Liverpool.
The 28-year-old Welshman was close to the end of his recovery from a knee problem that has kept him out since August but has sustained a new issue in training ahead of Tuesday’s trip to Liverpool which may keep him sidelined until after the World Cup.
“Tom Lawrence’s recovery went on schedule but he sustained a new injury this week,” said the Rangers boss.
“We have to wait to see how long he’ll be out but it will be longer term. Probably more months than weeks. I don’t think we’ll have him back before the World Cup.”
While Lawrence would not have been in consideration for Anfield it is not the news Van Bronckhorst would have wanted to hear heading into a game of huge significance as Rangers are still searching for their first Champions League point in 12 years.
