Rangers star Aaron Ramsey was spotted in first-team training ahead of the club’s Europa League semi-final with RB Leipzig at Ibrox.
The Welsh international hasn’t been seen since Rangers dumped Celtic at Hampden in the Scottish Cup in mid-April after pulling up with a hamstring issue.
Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst has previously claimed the aim was to get Juventus loanee Aaron Ramsey back for this match but nerves are frayed regarding his involvement.
Despite reports which claimed that the midfielder was set to be involved against the Germans, Rangers boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst tempered expectations ahead of the game.
Suggesting that the 31-year-old had a big day in training to prove his fitness ahead of the game, Rangers fans will take solace in the clip which was put on the Ibrox side’s social media.
Aaron Ramsey can be seen being put through his paces in the final training sessions before the RB Leipzig match and let’s hope he can bring his experience and ability to the Rangers side.

The ex-Arsenal star may have his fitness problems but he is without a doubt a quality option and even from the bench Ramsey’s inclusion bolsters the Ibrox side’s opportunities.
Nonetheless, van Bronckhorst is clear that a late decision will be taken on both Aaron Ramsey and teammate Kemar Roofe – not included in the video – ahead of the RB Leipzig visit.
“It depends how the training will go. When they got injured we all knew that they would work towards the game tomorrow [Thursday],” said van Bronckhorst [Rangers].
“Of course I will wait as long as possible, but the most important thing for me is that they are physically able to play a part in tomorrow’s game, that is always the deciding factor.
“We still have one day to prepare. Today will be an important day for both. I cannot tell you if they are in the squad for tomorrow or not.”
Rangers have also confirmed a minute’s silence will be held at Ibrox against RB Leipzig to remember the legendary Ibrox kitman Jimmy Bell, who passed away this week.
