Rangers manager Gio van Bronckhorst has given a mixed injury update ahead of next week’s Europa League final in Seville.
The Light Blues boss watched his side stroll to a 4-1 win over Ross County last night in their final home game of the season before confirming that he expects Ryan Jack to be fit to face Eintracht Frankfurt but is facing a race against time to get Kemar Roofe fit for the showpiece final.
Rangers lined up last night in what seems pretty close to how the Gers will start in Seville and van Bronckhorst is refusing to rule either out of appearing in the Light Blues first European final in 14 years.
“Roofe is going to be a close call [to be ready for the final],” van Bronckhorst said. “We’re working day by day. [Ryan] Jack is ahead of him; he will be ready I think for the final.”
Rangers stars face massive week in race to be fit for Europa League final in Seville
The Ibrox duo both face a massive week to prove they can play a part next week – although it seems as though the Gers will probably have to do without Kemar Roofe.
Having Jack available would be a huge bonus though and the Scotland star’s importance in midfield can’t be understated.
If Roofe doesn’t make it, Joe Aribo will almost certainly lead the line for Rangers in Seville next Wednesday.
With something like 100,000 Rangers fans heading for the Spanish city, both players will be desperate to be involved in what could prove to be the biggest game of their careers.
