Rangers manager Mark Warburton is set to better manager his players’ injuries particularly after the injury plagues in the team.
He disclosed that he would treat additions Jordan Rossiter and Josh Windass with kid gloves in a bid to better manage their injuries.
Windass, 22, has picked up hamstring injuries. The player showed serious potential since his switch from Accrington Stanley. The playmaker’s injuries has seen his appearances limited to 12 after 23 games in all competitions.
On the other hand Rossiter has calf problems which has ensured he missed games since August. The injuries mean Warburton would have to be innovative to manage the crises in the team. Niko Kranjcar has been sidelined for the rest of the season while Joey Barton’s stint has been cut short.
Young players might not be able to help as much as The Gers want instant impact as against the patience required when dealing with them.
“Josh we hope will come back this week – again you have to look after young players and look at the bigger picture. We talk about the demands we place on young players coming to Rangers and that is everything, the expectation of the crowd, playing in front of 50,000 and dealing with a more intense training regime.
“Their body is adapting to the demands of that and Josh is a young player with a very bright future ahead of him but we have to look after him,” Warburton told Rangers TV.
Clint Hill was sent off against Aberdeen but Warburton believes that Philippe Senderos or Danny Wilson will be a decent replacement for the veteran against the Jambos.
“Clint was excellent, I thought Clint and Rob on Saturday were both brilliant, it is great we have the options of Danny and Philippe but there is no doubt that Clint is showing his value, his worth his experience and his aerial strength,” the coach said.
