Rangers pair cut World Cup break short to focus on fitness ahead of return

Rangers pair Ryan Jack and Alex Lowry have been snapped being put through their paces as they cut short their World Cup break to fly out to a Dubai fitness camp.

The two players have seen their seasons dramatically interrupted by injury and after spending the majority of the campaign on the treatment table they’re working hard to return in a month’s time.

The two players are working with Elite Sports Performance in the Middle East and will – hopefully – be raring to go when the matches kick back off next month.

Rangers welcome Hibs to Ibrox on December 15th and the players have a lot of making up to do with the fans after falling nine points behind in the title race.

The club of course have not been helped by a series of devastating injury blows which has disrupted Rangers’ season and contributed to Giovanni van Bronckhorst losing his job at Ibrox.

As things stand, Connor Goldson, Filip Helander, John Souttar, Ridvan Yilmaz, Ianis Hagi, Tom Lawrence, Fashion Sakala, Kemar Roofe and Antonio Colak are all in recovery from injury.

Ryan Jack and Alex Lowry will be hoping to have a greater impact on the second half of the season at Rangers as the pair turn up the temperature in Dubai.

Rangers could certainly use greater strength in midfield and we’re sure this attitude and application will have a positive impact on whoever takes charge of the team when the football restarts.

Rangers have sacked Van Bronckhorst for falling behind in the title race and the club remain in the hunt for a replacement.

But one current Serie A manager linked to the role has been ruled out of the running for now by one of the club’s media partners.
