Pictures emerge of crocked Rangers star, manager addresses injury fears

Rangers kid Alex Lowry has been pictured in a protective brace after a horror challenge from Dumbarton no-mark Ally Love left him crocked.

The 19-year-old is widely regarded as amongst the brightest talents in the Scottish game and was pictured on crutches by a supporter.

The images have added insult to injury as Rangers fans rail against journeyman Dumbarton star Ally Love, with the winger accused of jealousy for the tackle on the Ibrox kid.

Rangers B were already hammering League Two leaders Dumbarton 7-0 in the SPFL Trust Trophy when Love wildly flew in on Alex Lowry, who’d scored a hattrick in the match.

It was a needless, pathetic and dangerous challenge which drew the ire of Rangers B manager David McCallum and supporters after the game.

Remarkably, Love was only shown a yellow card for the tackle but you can bet he’ll be called out for it at every turn with Rangers fans having long memories and Ally Love’s career not exactly likely to be remembered for anything else.

Manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst revealed the club foresee the injury keeping Alex Lowry out of Rangers training for “some weeks”.

“Alex had an unfortunate injury from the game he played this week so he’s not available,” said Gio.

“I think he will be some weeks out.”

The news comes as a huge blow to Alex Lowry, who was beginning to find some form again after a pre-season injury had kept him out of the first team.

The last campaign’s breakthrough star, there were high hopes that Lowry could kick on this season after signing a three-year deal ahead of the summer.

Let’s hope the horror challenge doesn’t stifle this talented young man’s career for long and the less said about Ally Love, the better.

Now it’s about Alex Lowry getting his career back on track and the humble young Rangers star will be hoping to be back in action at Ibrox in the coming months.
