There has been plenty for Rangers fans to talk about during the training camp in Tenerife, this week.
The first sightings of the club’s new no 9, Jermain Defoe and no. 10, Steven Davis.
Yesterday, American international Matt Polster was also spotted at the training facility, as he looks to earn a move to Ibrox.
Finally, last night, pictures emerged of a long-term absentee.
Injury has sidelined the 29-year-old winger, since August. He damaged knee ligaments in a League Cup tie at Kilmarnock and was
However, he has recently discussed making a return before then.
The Scotland international says he has a date in his head and has been posting rehab updates.
The timeframe could be improving though. He was pictured running unassisted and kicking a ball in Tenerife, yesterday.
His absence on the left has been keenly felt this campaign and Bears were delighted to see him back.
Brilliant to see him running again. Been a huge miss this season. Especially his versatility to play wide or 10.

Fantastic to see. I didn't think he'd be kicking a ball for weeks yet.

With a ligament injury, clearly, it’s key not to rush a return.
However, with Murphy already able to do bits and pieces on the training ground, he looks set to prove initial reports wrong.
It may not be for a while yet, but the winger could yet provide a big boost to the Gers during the latter half of the season.
