We’re delighted to welcome injury expert Dr Rajpal Brar as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the injury situation at Rangers...
Rangers loanee Malik Tillman may be out of action for up to four months as he recently suffered a hamstring injury, claims Dr Rajpal Brar.
While the injury expert believes that it should be 10 weeks if it’s a Grade 3 rupture, things could be a lot worse after what reports say about the American.
American Soccer Now reported on 2 May that it is a “nightmare” injury that’s going to keep the 20-year-old out for a while.
Discussing his situation exclusively with Ibrox News, Brar, a doctor in physical therapy and a sports scientist, said, “Tillman has a hamstring injury and if ‘nightmare’ refers to worst-case scenario then he’s likely looking at least 10+ weeks out with a Grade 3 rupture in his hamstring which could be longer if surgery is required [at least a month longer].“
Tillman may have played his last game for Rangers as this injury has ended his season and he’s not going to be back before the end of the month.
He moved to Ibrox on loan in the summer and while there is in an option to buy, there are no indications that the club will be triggering that.
The American has been a regular for Gers this season, as he played 28 league games and scored 10 goals along with providing four assists.
He was also nominated for the club’s Player of the Year and appears to be the frontrunner to win the famed award.
