Fleck injured again

Rangers have been dealt another major injury blow after John Fleck was ruled out of action for the rest of the month.

The Ibrox youngster has been crocked since the start of August when he suffered a hamstring injury during a pre-season friendly fixture with Clyde.

Walter Smith was hoping to have the 19-year-old available for this weekend’s clash with Dundee United at Ibrox with Fleck appearing to have made a full recovery from the injury that forced him to miss the start of the new season.

Fleck has been back in full training for the last couple of weeks and he took part in a bounce match against Falkirk earlier this week and managed to come through it unscathed.

But plans to introduce him back into the first team were crushed when the 19-year-old injured the same hamstring that has kept him on the sidelines for the last six weeks on the training field at Murray Park.

The SPL champions are hoping the injury isn’t quite as bad as the original problem, but it is highly unlikely he will be in a position to play any part in Rangers’ up-and-coming fixtures as he braces himself for another extended spell out of action.

Fleck was desperate to make a major impact after penning a new deal last term and his efforts in pre-season earned him rave reviews from his boss.

Although Rangers have won their opening four league games and secured a point away to Manchester United as they opened up their Champions League campaign, Smith is keen to inject more creativity into his side.

That is something Fleck possesses, but Rangers will now have to continue without the services of the Scotland Under-21 star as they attempt to nurse him back to full health.

The problem with Fleck is that his body is still growing. Couple that with the the training routines required from a pro footballer, and you can expect injuries.

He'll need to watch his back and hamstrings especially. Too much too young is what done for Michael Owen.

He should remove his wisdom teeth.

This is apparently a good cure for hamstring trouble.

Whether this is a cure or not, i would strongly advise him to hire a dentist to do the work and not attempt thim all by himself!

Pulling at your wisdom teeth with a pair of pliers in your garage is not advised, even to someone as talented as John Fleck!

Well with the options we have up front, and with Weiss in the squad I'm going to say that we don't need to rush him back, so we can take our time with him and allow him to get fully recovered. He's going to be a great player for us in the future imo, so we dont want to damage him too early!!
