Rangers will be without their key player until the end of January.
Gerrard’s side will be without their midfielder Scott Arfield for the rest of January. It will be bad news for the young head coach as they have a decisive run in the next few weeks.
“Scott’s about to come out of a boot that he’s been in since the injury,” said the Rangers boss.
“He’s got quite a significant injury. He’s progressing well but in the short term Scott will be missing. It is difficult to put a date on Scott.
“What I would say is that knowing Scott, and if he keeps progressing as he has, you are looking at probably the end of the month all being well.
“It’s an injury that you can’t really rush and push, as much as you want to. So we are probably looking at four to five weeks for this type of injury.
“He has been out for a couple already so you are looking at probably the end of January, the beginning of February. We will look to see how that plays out.”
But Rangers will have Ryan Jack back from a knee injury according to Gerrad.
“There’s better news on Ryan Jack, who has been outside and had two or three sessions and is progressing extremely well.
“If that keeps moving in that direction he should be back with the team sometime in the middle of next week.”
