Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has given some positive injury news about winger Jamie Murphy as he confirmed that he could come back into contention for the final week or two of the season.
Murphy has missed virtually the entire campaign after tearing knee ligaments against Kilmarnock at the start of the season and was expected to be out until the summer.

Gerrard confirmed though that there’s a “small chance” he’ll be available for the final games as his side look to secure second in the league.

“Jamie Murphy has a small chance of being involved in the last week or two of the season,” Gerrard told Rangers’ official Twitter account.

The former Brighton ace has been a big miss for the Gers this season and having him back should be a real boost.

While it seems almost certain he won’t be thrown into any games from the start, it wil be good to see him make a brief appearance from the bench.

Getting him fully fit over the summer and raring to go for next season will give Gerrard’s side a whole new attacking option and likely someone who will go straight into the starting XI.
Since moving to Ibrox in January 2018, Murphy has scored six times and contributed 13 assists in 27 appearances which just shows how influential the 29-year-old can be.
