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...

A member of the Rangers staff may be with Kemar Roofe as he was spotted undergoing rehabilitation in the Middle East, claims Dr Rajpal Brar.

The injury expert asserts that the weather and facilities there are ideal for players to get back in shape, especially if they’ve undergone surgery.

The 30-year-old underwent surgery on his hip in the past weeks and that operation ensured that he will be playing no further part in the 2022/23 campaign.

Discussing his situation exclusively with Ibrox News, Brar, a doctor in physical therapy and a sports scientist, said, “This is a hip injury that he’s needed surgery on for quite some months but continued to battle through.

“Hard to give any specifics based on that as it can be multiple things, a sports hernia, hip labrum, etc.

“Many footballers rehab in the Middle East due to the facilities and warmer weather, sometimes with a team physio who accompanies the player and other times with a personal physio.”

Roofe has another year left on his deal and could get more minutes next season with Michael Beale understood to be an admirer.

Alfredo Morelos is going to move on along with Ryan Kent while the likes of Fashion Sakala and Rabbi Matondo have been inconsistent in the final third.

Due to multiple injury issues, the 30-year-old just featured in three league games this season for Gers, and managed to score one goal.

In other Rangers news, the club are clearly playing a sick joke with their supporters after they made an announcement about a senior player.
