Rangers loanee Rhys Breen is awaiting the results of an x-ray after suffering a suspected broken ankle in training yesterday with Partick Thistle.
The Rangers defender is on loan with the Jags for the season alongside Ibrox team-mate Kieran Wright but now looks set for a extended spell on the sidelines.

Partick manager Ian McCall confirmed the blow, speaking to Not The Old Firm as he was left without yet another key player as the Jags’ injury problems continue.
“Rhys Breen is away for an x-ray and may have broken his ankle or maybe a ligament strain,” said McCall, who was speaking to promote Purple Thistle Day at Thistle v East Fife this Saturday, which will raise awareness for Pancreatic Cancer Action Scotland.
“From having four centre-halves, we’ve now got one. I’d say it was a chance for someone else but we haven’t got another centre-back.”
Breen has made four appearances for the League One side this season and has done well for McCall’s men as they adjust to life in the third tier.
Hopefully, the injury isn’t as bad as first feared and the defender can get back to action as quickly as possible as Partick look to push up the table and challenge for the title this season.
