Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst would not be drawn on when Kemar Roofe and Aaron Ramsey will return to full fitness.
Roofe has been missing with a knee injury since the Scottish Cup semi-final, while Aaron Ramsey had to be substituted before half-time in the same match due to a hamstring problem. Neither featured against Motherwell or Leipzig, and while the pair aren’t expected to face Celtic tomorrow either, there was some hope they could be back for the second leg of the Europa League semi-final next week. When asked for an update, van Bronckhorst says they are taking their recoveries one step at a time:
“No, I can’t comment on that right now. Of course, we hope they’re back but it’s a day-by-day decision we have to make but we’ll wait and see.”
Roofe was actually pictured undergoing hyperbaric oxygen therapy earlier this week, demonstrating the effort he is going to in order to return to action.
Ramsey’s fitness issues are well documented. The former Arsenal player has only made seven starts for Rangers since arriving on loan from Juventus in January.
