Rangers star Scott Arfield was snapped back in training on Friday following an injury absence and there’s a chance he could feature against Aberdeen.

Arfield hasn’t played since the 1-1 Premiership draw at St Johnstone on 21 April, due to an ankle injury.

The Canada international has missed three matches as a result but the problem has now cleared up and he took part in the final training session of the season at Ibrox.

Earlier on Friday, Steven Gerrard suggested there was a chance of the 32-year-old returning to action.

“Arfield’s going to train this morning,” said the Gers boss [RangersTV]. “I said he’d have an outside chance, so we’ll make a decision on Scott after today’s session, but he’s going to train with the group today.”

Arfield has struggled with injuries so far in 2021 but was extremely influential over the first half of the season.

He has 44 appearances across all competitions, managing seven goals and six assists, with a strike against Galatasaray in the Gers’ final Europa League Qualifier a particularly important contribution.

It seems highly unlikely that he’ll be deemed fit enough to start against the Dons, but a late cameo could be on the cards.

In other news, Rangers are reportedly eyeing an £8m move for a player with a ‘huge amount of personality’, who recently won his club’s Player of the Year award.
