Rangers flop faces two weeks out over Covid fears - report

Former Rangers defender Lee Hodson has had to self-isolate after coming into contact with someone who has Coronavirus and will be missing for new club Hamilton for the next two weeks, according to the Daily Record.

Hodson joined Accies on loan from Gillingham earlier in the summer but manager Brian Rice will be without his services as clubs continue to try and work through COVID.

The Northern Irish international has tested negative for the virus but has to isolate in line with Scottish Government guidelines.

Several clubs, including Aberdeen and St. Mirren, have already had positive tests in recent weeks and plans for fans to return to games later this month have been pushed back to October.

After leaving Rangers, Hodson headed south to join Gillingham but has since moved on loan twice, first to St. Mirren then Hamilton.

During his time at Ibrox, the full-back struggled to force his way into the side and was regularly back-up to James Tavernier.

Hodson will miss the clash with Livingston this weekend and next Saturday’s trip to Kilmarnock but should return to the squad to face Dundee United on September 26.

Rangers have yet to report any positive tests and the clubs, generally, seem to be taking the necessary steps to avoid further risk to players.
