Wilson and Kranjcar bolster boss’ options

Rangers FC

Rangers duo Danny Wilson and Niko Kranjcar are back in contention to face St Johnstone on Friday after recovering from injury.

Ibrox boss Pedro Caixinha has confirmed that the Light Blues’ pair have shaken off calf and knee problems respectively.

Defender David Bates is also fit again while Jordan Rossiter, who has hardly featured since his move from Liverpool over 12 months ago, could return to training next week too.

That would leave captain Lee Wallace as the manager’s sole absentee, with the left-back facing another six weeks out with groin trouble.

Caixinha told RangersTV: “Maybe next week, Jordan can start training with the team. Niko and Danny started the previous week and will be with us again this week.

“All the boys who have been options in the last games have been doing great, doing what we want, and we are happy to have everyone on board so we have much more competitiveness which gives us more doubts in terms of the selection of the players. That is great for us.”
