Caixinha to pitch in Alves

Pedro Caixinha has hinted that Bruno Alves could be action for Rangers in Friday's Premiership trip to St Johnstone.

The Gers boss had been keeping an eye on the 35-year-old veteran defender while he was away on international duty with Portugal, given that he only recently recovered from a calf injury which forced him to miss last month's Old Firm defeat against Celtic.

It was initially thought that Alves would not be ready to line-up against the Saints on Friday as Portugal's final World Cup qualifier in Lisbon was on Tuesday night.

Alves didn't feature for his country as he watched the 2-0 win against Switzerland from the substitutes' bench, and Caixinha has suggested he could now start at McDiarmid Park.

He said: "He will definitely be training with the group tomorrow [Thursday], and he will be able to be with us on Friday.

"Without receiving minutes [in Portugal] he can be with us, he maybe can start also on Friday."
