Carlos Fit For Lisbon

DEFENSIVE rock Carlos Cuellar will be fit for Thursday's UEFA Cup showdown with Sporting in Lisbon.

Despite scare stories this morning over his fitness, the former Osasuna centre back will be ready for the second leg of the quarter-final in the Jose Alavalade Stadium.

The brave Spaniard was not feeling 100 per cent on Sunday but still opted to play for Rangers at Tannadice and again performed solidly even although he was unfortunate to concede an own goal in the 3-3 draw with Dundee United which took Rangers seven clear in the SPL title race.

The head cold he was suffering meant he was unable to attend a press launch yesterday for the PFA Scotland Player of the Year awards, in which he is one of the four nominees for the top prize.

However, the Murray Park medical team are confident that Cuellar will take his usual place in the side on Thursday night and he will travel with the team tomorrow morning.

Regular defensive partner Davie Weir is suspended for the match having accrued three yellow cards in Europe this season so it looks as though Christian Dailly will come in.

After an earlier thread, am glad, but, still thinking we should drop hemdani back into defence, and have the midfield of Ferguson, Davis, Thomson... Think that would give us a big help in getting a goal

That explains why he had an off game.

Wonder if half the team have it too.

Carlos played well, wasn't so much an 'off day' at all.

Delighted he's back for Thrusday :D

He is our best player and I have nothing but respect for him and to put his hand up and play even when he was ill shows real heart.

He scored an OG and missed the header clearance for another goal, IMO, he had an off day. No big deal.

I too am delighted he is playing on Thu.
