Rangers suffer major injury blow as Tom Lawrence ruled out until March

Rangers have suffered a major blow after Tom Lawrence has been ruled out of action until March, as reported by Rangers Review.

The former Derby County captain made an impressive start to life in Glasgow after netting three goals in as many games but has not been seen in months.

However, he has not featured for the Bears since August, and it appears that he will be out for at least another four months with a further blow.

According to a further report from the Herald and Times Sport, Lawrence will now visit a specialist in London to assess his Achilles issue.

Massive blow

The news will come as a huge blow for the club. It was expected that Lawrence will come back strongly after the World Cup, but it appears that he will be out for an extended period.

It will be interesting to see if the club signs a new midfielder in January, but first of all, the club needs to appoint a new manager after Giovanni van Bronckhorst was sacked this week.

His final appearance came in the win over Ross County at Ibrox, and it is now uncertain when will he return to action again. This is also a major blow for the next man in the door at Ibrox.

The Bears have had really poor luck with injuries this year, but hopefully, some of the key players will return after the World Cup break.

Ianis Hagi has been training well, and he is keen to return after a long injury lay-off, while Connor Goldson and Kemar Roofe, both should be fit to play in the second half of the campaign.
