Wallace To Miss At Least Two Games

Wallace To Miss At Least Two Games

Rangers gaffer Pedro Caixinha has confirmed that Lee Wallace will miss the League Cup quarter final against Partick Thistle and the Old Firm against Celtic following the groin injury he picked up against Partick in our last clash.

Speaking to the Official Site a short time ago, Caixinha revealed that Wallace had travelled down to England to determine the severity of the problem and also come up with a time frame for a return, and whilst those answers are still to come in, he will certainly be out for the next two matches.

Wallace of course was substituted after only ten minutes in the two all draw with Partick, being replaced by Declan John.

'Lee Wallace is out, he is travelling to Manchester today to have an assessment on his groin so let`s see how it goes. Depending on the outcome of that we will see what we need to do. He will miss the weekend, Lee is out we just need to know for how long he needs to be out.'

With John also complaining of an ankle niggle following the game, it looked like he might miss the tie in midweek as well, but Caixinha confirmed he would at least be in the squad having returned to training on Sunday with no problems.

'Declan John will definitely be with us tomorrow as will Ryan Jack who will start. Graham Dorrans is back at training today, yesterday he felt a bit sick and the doctor is already on him. He will not train with the team this morning but we think he will be available for Tuesday.'

Niko Kranjcar and Jordan Rossiter both missed the last game, and they continue to struggle with their respective knee injuries.

'Niko started back training with us on Sunday. He is still going to be assessed by his surgeon so we are going to see how we are going to deal with his situation. It is the same knee as he injured last season. Jordan Rossiter still has some pain on the knee so he still can`t train with the team and is not in our options.'
