Rangers boss Steven Gerrard hoping for major Europa League injury boost ahead of Royal Antwerp clash


Steven Gerrard is hoping Scott Arfield can give Rangers a Europa League boost and declare himself fit for next month’s last-32 showdown with Royal Antwerp.

The midfielder has not played since injuring ankle ligaments against Hibernian on Boxing Day but is on track for a comeback ahead of the Light Blues’ trip to Belgium on February 18.

Asked if Arfield could play a part, Gerrard said: “Possibly. I don’t want to put too much pressure on the medical department or the staff down there, they’re doing a fantastic job.

“Scott is moving along really well. I think we said at the time it would be a five or six week job and we’re now four weeks into that.

“It will depend on what his fitness levels are in a couple of weeks’ time but I’m hoping to have him available around that time, yeah.”
