Madjid Bougherra fitness boost for Rangers

Recommended Posts

ET :gerbad:

MADJID BOUGHERRA is expected to hand Rangers a major boost by declaring himself fit for Saturday's SPL clash against Hearts at Ibrox.

The Algerian defender missed the Co-operative Insurance Cup Final defeat by Celtic with a calf injury and, with David Weir suspended for the game against the Tynecastle side, there were fears that Rangers would have a huge defensive headache.

However, Bougherra is expected to declare himself fit and Kirk Broadfoot, who was red-carded against Celtic on Sunday, is fit and available for selection despite struggling with a foot ligament problem.

Broadfoot's dismissal will result in a one-match suspension in next season's League Cup competition.

The game against Hearts comes hard on the heels of the Old Firm defeat and gives Rangers the chance to return to the top of the table.

Celtic do not play until Sunday when they face a testing journey to Tannadice and Rangers will want to put them under as much pressure as possible.
