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...

Tom Lawrence does not seem too far away from making a first-team return to Rangers after a long-term injury, claims Dr Rajpal Brar.

The injury expert asserts that Gers are being measured with his return given how long he’s been out of action for them.

The 29-year-old Wales international has been out of action for over a year now after a serious knee concern at the start of last season.

Discussing his situation exclusively with Ibrox News, Brar, a doctor in physical therapy and a sports scientist, said, “It sounds like he’s nearing his return and the club is simply being measured and methodical with his return-to-play process.

The club is focusing on continuous weeks of training prior to placing him into games consistently.

It does not seem long before he’s kicking a ball for Rangers and perhaps even starting games.

The Welsh forward has returned to action for the reserves as he slowly is working his way back to the first team.

At the end of July, Beale claimed that the 29-year-old had been training well and that’s important for him to regain fitness.

Lawrence is certainly going to find it a challenge breaking into the first team given the number of attacking players that have joined this summer.

In other Rangers news, a manager has issued a verdict on a defender’s future as the Gers are prepared to make a move to sign him this summer.
