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...
Ben Davies is missing in action for Rangers with a potential Grade 1 tear in his hamstring, claims Dr Rajpal Brar.
According to the injury expert, based on what Michael Beale has said about the centre-back, a “slight” injury could be a minor tear.
If it is indeed a minor concern, then he could return for the games against Hearts or St Mirren on 24 May and 27 May.
Discussing his situation exclusively with Ibrox News, Brar, a doctor in physical therapy and a sports scientist, said, “Per Rangers manager Michael Beale, Davies is dealing with a slight hamstring injury.
“If it’s in fact slight (typically refers to a Grade 1 tear), then it’s possible that he could still return.”

Due to John Souttar’s injury, Davies has been the first-choice option to partner Connor Goldson this season, making 27 league appearances.
He also featured on three occasions in Rangers’ disastrous Champions League campaign that saw them getting knocked out without getting a single point.
The 27-year-old moved to Ibrox in the summer and has three more years left to run on his deal at the club.
He has been linked with a move away from the club and it remains to be seen if the Rangers hierarchy decide to ship him on.
