Jelavic injury news


Recommended Posts

Sorry if a repost. It seems that Jelavic might be back playing at the christmas period. Hopefully he gets a few games before the old firm at Ibrox.

Meanwhile, Smith has been handed a massive boost with the news that Croatian hitman Nikica Jelavic believes he is on course to return from an ankle injury before the end of the year.

The former Rapid Vienna striker made an impressive start to his Ibrox career scoring four goals in six appearances and formed an impressive partnership with top scorer Kenny Miller after his £4m August move.

But the 25-year-old suffered ankle ligament damage after a tackle by Hearts midfielder Ian Black in a match at Tynecastle last month.

Now Jelavic has said he is delighted with his recovery – and may return for Rangers sooner than had been predicted.

He said: “I work hard every single day, from morning to night. The only time I stop is to go home for lunch.

“Now I am slowly beginning to stretch the ankle and soon I will get off my crutches.

“Then I will get back training again. I expect to be back playing before the start of the New Year.”
