Rangers star Filip Helander has been passed fit to play for Sweden tonight

Rangers star Filip Helander has been passed fit to play for Sweden against Greece tonight, according to his manager Janne Anderson.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, the Swedish national team manager confirmed that the 28-year-old had recovered from his injury suffered against Spain and was ready to play [Daily Record].

This is good news for the Gers, who perhaps could have been worried to hear about Helander’s initial injury [Glasgow Live].

Anderson said: “Filip Helander is okay and fit to play.

“He and some other players needed some rest and rehab after the game against Spain, but he is ready to play Greece”.

Good news for Rangers.

Helander played in the Gers’ last league game before the international break and helped beat Celtic 1-0, thanks to his header.

So, you would think that, if he is fit, he will be involved against St Johnstone on Sunday.

Therefore, they will hope that he gets through Sweden’s match tonight unscathed and is ready to go again on Sunday.

Helander was handed his chance to shine against Celtic because of Covid and grabbed that opportunity with both hands by scoring and turning in a solid performance.

So, we want to see the big Swede come through this game unscathed and return to Glasgow in good condition and ready to continue where he left off.

There’s intense competition among the Gers backline this season and missing just one game could see someone get left behind.
