Just as things couldn’t get any worse for Michael Beale, it looks as though Todd Cantwell might have suffered an injury for Rangers against Celtic at Ibrox.

The 25-year old playmaker was clattered by Daizen Maeda in one of many questionable refereeing calls and received treatment for a suspected knee injury.

Todd Cantwell is made of sterner stuff and played on through the pain barrier only for Rangers to fail to make the most of their territorial advantage, a social media video doing the rounds doesn’t look good though.

The video is one where a Celtic fan has decided to pester the Light Blues midfielder at the airport, it’s only a three minute clip but the knee brace on Cantwell’s left knee is clear to see.

Tam McManus reposted the video concerned and was less than impressed with the individual responsible.

There has been nothing confirmed from the club, but the sort of brace in use is usually one reserved for ligament damage.

Dr Mark Waller was seen on the pitch and pitch side going through a series of tests assessing Todd Cantwell’s knee and, despite Rangers already having used all their subs, wouldn’t have allowed him to play on if there were any red flags.

Compression has replace ice as the go to treatment for musculoskeletal injuries in recent years and it may be that the brace is purely a precaution.

The last thing that Michael Beale will want is to be without Todd Cantwell for Rangers at the other side of the international break.

If he is to redeem himself and get the fans back on track, having the one bright spark of last season fit, on form and playing in his best position is essential.

Micheal Beale might not be able to do anything about Cantwell’s fitness but he could get fans back inside by building the attack around our best player.
