Naisy On Target

THE NEW YEAR has begun and hard work is just beginning for Steven Naismith.

A little over two months have passed since the Rangers playmaker crumpled to the Pittodrie turf in agony with the horrible realisation that he had suffered a serious knee injury.

For the second time in his career he had damaged the anterior cruciate ligament - this time in his right leg - and for the second time in his career he was left to contemplate a long and difficult rehabilitation period.

However, the experience of that first trauma back in 2008 is standing him in good stead and it's so far so good as Naismith aims to be back in action for the start of next season.

He told RangersTV: "It's coming along nicely and I feel pretty good. The leg seems strong and the physios and the doctor are happy with it so it's a case of continuing on.

"We are still at an early stage and I am only doing basic exercises at the moment. It will be another month or so before I can do harder exercises.

"There are different phases to the rehabilitation. At the start the surgeon just wants the graft to heal and the scars to heal over, then it is to get your range of movement back followed by the hard work to build your muscles back up.

"The early signs are that everything will be fine. We have worked hard to get over the first few hurdles.

"Having been through all of this before it has helped me mentally. I am much more comfortable going through all of the exercises asked of me whereas in the past I was more apprehensive."
