Mcleod Makes His Return

Mcleod Makes His Return

Following his illness, Lewis Mcleod is now back and raring to go ahead of our Championship campaign.

The midfielder has returned to full health following the illness that kept him out during the second half of our League One season, and having already started stepping up his fitness, he came through the tests yesterday with flying colours and our outdoor sessions today unscathed and now having had four months out, he can't wait to really get going, get up to the level he should be at, and then try and work his way back into manager Ally McCoist's thinking.

Speaking to the Official Site having made his return, 20 year old Mcleod said he could draw on the experience he got when he was out for a period with a knee injury, and he knows the best thing he can do is remain positive, happy, and look forward to kicking on again like he did after that spell.

'It's always hard to get back into the team and in the last two seasons I've had bad injuries for long spells. After the first one when I hurt my knee, I was able to come back into the team and I feel I did well last year. Hopefully I can do the same again this season and make a good impact because I'm looking forward to the new campaign.'

Mcleod says that on paper it should be a very good and tough season indeed given the sides that we will face, and if the league proves to live up to the expectations that people have for it, then Rangers will also have to more than raise their game to live up to the expectations that people have of us, but with the league being more open in terms of a style of play, the youngster believes this will suit us more than the last two divisions.

'Teams attacking us more will suit our style of play as we can hit them on the counter and all the boys are relishing the challenge. Hopefully people will get to see what we're all about next season but you could argue people have had a glimpse of it already.'
