Rangers injury update as player not seen this season “progressing well”

Rangers B manager David McCallum has claimed that Alex Lowry is “progressing well” after being crocked by a horror challenge in the SPFL Trust Trophy.

The game was in its final moments and with Dumbarton already 7-0 down, the needless challenge drew the ire of every bluenose from across the country.

Rangers B boss McCallum was left fuming at full-time and Rangers fans were not shy in letting no-mark journeyman Love know exactly what they thought of him in the aftermath.

But as Rangers fans ask the question regarding how long Alex Lowry will be out the team – the kid only just returning from injury before the horror challenge – there has been something of a positive update regarding last season’s breakthrough talent.

Positive news regarding Alex Lowry Rangers injury

Speaking ahead of the U19s UEFA Youth League clash with Napoli, David McCallum expanded on Lowry’s situation and claims the injury won’t be long-term although he gave no real indication on a return date.

“He is progressing well. He is obviously not back on the football pitch yet and not back in contention for any game time at the moment,” said McCallum [Glasgow Times].

“But any time I have seen him or had conversations about him, it seems to be quite positive just now.

“I think when he got the initial feedback that the injury wasn’t going to be as long-term as what we initially thought, I think naturally Alex felt a bit better about that because he could see a bit of brightness ahead.

“But in terms of that, I don’t have any more on that that I am able to share just now.”

Rangers star Alex Lowry has made seven appearances for the Rangers top team, scoring twice and laying on two assists to impress fans in the early part of his Ibrox career.

Meanwhile, the SFA’s latest statement to Scottish football means Rangers fans can expect to look out their scarves this weekend.
