Rangers assistant manager Gary McAllister has confirmed that the club are awaiting results from Scott Arfield’s scan.
The midfielder is a doubt for Wednesday’s game against St Mirren after suffering an injury last time out against Hibernian.
Gary McAllister has arrived to speak to the media.
🎙️ GM: Scott Arfield is on his way to get a scan and we are awaiting results. It was disappointing to see him leave the pitch and hopeful the scan is not too bad. We are still going to have to be patient with Ryan Jack.

McAllister confirms that the club remain hopeful, but at this stage, it remains too early to make a definitive decision on his availability.
More injuries in midfield are the last thing that Steven Gerrard will want to contend with, as Ryan Jack continues to watch on from the sidelines.
Arfield would be a huge miss
It goes without saying that a player of Arfield’s quality and experience would be a huge miss to the Rangers the squad.
However, he is often a player than can fly under the radar for the impact that he has on the Gers team.
In all competitions this season, Arfield has eight goals and five assists to his name so far.
For Arfield, it is not always about goals or assists, but the work he puts in at both ends of the pitch.
According to Wyscout, he is averaging nearly 19 duels per game, as well as nearly five touches in the penalty area.
Couple that with a near-90% pass success rate, that includes over seven passes into the final third per 90 minutes and you have yourself an extremely valuable all-action midfielder.
