Rangers have been handed a Todd Cantwell injury boost after images appeared of the player in a protective boot.

A video clip of the Ibrox midfielder, 25, being harassed at Glasgow International Airport not only frustrated supporters for obvious reasons, but it gave rise to injury fears.

This is because Todd Cantwell was spotted wearing a protective boot in the clip, with plenty worrying if the ex-Norwich star was carrying a post-Celtic injury.

But those fears have now taken a fresh twist with the popular Rangers star spotted walking around the Ibrox museum in a recent RangersTV training video.

This was as the Rangers first team visited the club’s museum during the week in a stark reminder of the expectations they’re living with in Glasgow.

Rangers Todd Cantwell Ibrox injury mystery absence

The situation would have had Rangers and Michael Beale a little nervous with Todd Cantwell one of the club’s key players and the midfielder having it all to prove this season.

Along with his Ibrox teammates, absolutely no-one at Rangers can attest to an acceptable start to the season and after a two-week international lull, the hard work starts now.

Whilst there’s been no official update on any injury, Todd Cantwell had taken to social media during the break and pledged to supporters that the Rangers team will work hard to reverse their dire start to the campaign.

The club is already four points behind Old Firm rivals Celtic in the Scottish Premiership and was also humiliated in Champions League qualification at the hands of PSV Eindhoven.

The Todd Cantwell injury boost also comes with Rangers – whisper it quietly – appearing to get both Tom Lawrence and Kemar Roofe back to full fitness.

The pair have missed the best part of a year due to long-standing fitness problems but Michael Beale has included both in the Rangers Europa League squad.

It suggests that, alongside Todd Cantwell, the two injury-prone stars will have a big role to play domestically and on the continent as the hard work starts now.
