Rangers attacking midfielder Todd Cantwell has revealed that he is hoping to be in contention to face Hibernian.
“The plan is definitely to be back after the international break. “It’s not been as smooth as I’d have liked and I can’t make any promises but the plan is to be back and fit for the Hibs game.”
Fans on X are keenly anticipating Cantwell’s return, with many believing that he adds something extra to the team in the final third of the pitch:
What a big miss he has been he was great in the Celtic game😀

Still can't believe he was allowed to stay on until the end of the game and worsen his condition. Hopefully Philippe has some ideas on how to sort out the clear medical issues at Ibrox.

It’s a timely return for Cantwell
With Philippe Clement having just been appointed as manager, Cantwell will be keen to make an impression on his new boss.
Cantwell can certainly provide an X Factor for the Gers but it remains to be seen whether Clement is a fan of his. Being back available for selection will, though, help his cause.
Rangers have other injury concerns
The likes of Leon Balogun (knock) and Tom Lawrence (leg) are doubts to face Hibs, while Danilo (broken cheekbone) and Rabbi Matondo (knee) won’t feature.
Kieran Dowell has recovered from a knee injury so, like Cantwell, there is a chance the midfielder could be ready to play on Saturday.
