Former SPL chief makes bizarre Rangers injury claim as his team stumble again

Rangers have romped eleven points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership with a 4-0 win over Aberdeen on Sunday – and former SPL chief executive Roger Mitchell has bizarrely claimed it is a result of the Gers not having a single injury recently

Mitchell quoted an Italian-based Scottish football site listing some of the Gers’ impressive statistics in their last six Premiership games – and added his own made up one after seeing his own side drop points at Easter Road.

While Rangers’ injury problems of earlier this season have eased – Gerrard’s side lost just the four players against Dundee United in September – and ‘only’ had to go into Sunday’s game with Aberdeen missing Niko Katic and Bongani Zungu.

Katic’s injury has kept him out of action for the full season so far while Zungu returned from international duty nursing a knock – with Joe Aribo and Kemar Roofe recently making their return from injury.

Ironically, Mitchell may have contributed to his own conspiracy theory given his role as an Executive Advisor to Zone 7 – an artificial intelligence company who specialise in injury risk forecasting and works with over 30 professional teams from around the globe.

The California based company claims it can help sports companies hit the perfect balance “between pushing athlete performance and maintaining athlete health” and examine the results of a wearable tracker whose millions of data points can be used to predict potential issues for each individual player.

Silly Roger.
