Aaron Ramsey set to be available for Rangers within two weeks after positive scan
Rangers loan star Aaron Ramsey has received a major injury boost after a scan revealed “no significant issue” according to the Scottish Sun.
After picking up an knock against Celtic in the cup semi-final there were fears of a recurrence of past injury issues, and that he might have played his final game for the club.
But the latest news suggests he should not only be available for the Scottish Cup final in a month’s time (21 May), but may also be fit to feature in the return leg of the Europa League semi-final against RB Leipzig (5 May).
There is even a hope that he may even be fit for the upcoming league Old Firm clash (1 May).
The Sun report says: “Scan results have shown his injury is nowhere near as bad as first feared.
“And it should settle much quicker than originally thought.
“SunSport understands the original worry was that the damage was similar to the serious injury Ramsey suffered at Arsenal before moving to Italy.
“But scans have revealed there is no significant issue and Ramsey should be back in action after two weeks rest and treatment.”
After a slow start in Glasgow the Welsh midfielder was starting to establish himself as an important part of the team.
But a hamstring problem forced him off before half time at Hampden Park, suggesting his injury issues had caught up with him.
It now looks like there will be a chance for him to make a lasting impact before the end of the season though.
If he is fit for all three of the massive games suggested then a victory at Celtic, who he scored his first goal against at Ibrox, would at least put the pressure on in the title race.
Then with just three games between Gers and lifting both the cup and the Europa League, his experience is sure to be vital to chances of success.
So the latest report will be a major boost to Giovanni van Bronckhorst as he looks to secure an historic and to the season.
