Rangers striker Kemar Roofe has returned to full training after recovering from a muscular problem, according to reports.
The 28-year-old injured a quad muscle in the win over Celtic in the Old Firm derby at the start of the month and missed the games against Aberdeen and Motherwell.
With Roofe now reportedly back to full fitness, he is expected to return to the matchday squad when the Light Blues face Ross County on Saturday. Supporters on Twitter are very happy that the forward is available for selection:

Since arriving from Anderlecht for £4m in the summer, the Englishman has been impressive, having scored ten goals in 15 Premiership appearances.
Although he has had his injuries this season, Roofe has played a key role in helping the Gers to the top of the table, and his goals will be vital if and when Steven Gerrard’s side pick up title number 55 at the end of the campaign.
