Glasgow Rangers have received a setback ahead of their game against Hibernian as Alex Lowry will be sidelined for another four weeks due to an injury.
Lowry has struggled with fitness concerns throughout the current season and has only played 81 minutes of football in four senior games.
Although he made a brief appearance in the team’s win against Hearts in early February, he has not been included in the last two league squads.
Michael Beale, speaking after Rangers’ 3-1 win over Kilmarnock, confirmed that Lowry will be out of action for the next four weeks due to his injury.
“MB also updated on Alex Lowry – out for another four weeks.”
The loss of Alex Lowry for the next few weeks is certainly a blow for Rangers, particularly given the number of other injuries in the squad.
With as many as six first-team players out, it will be a challenge for Michael Beale to field a full squad.
Lowry has impressed in his limited senior appearances this season, with four games and 81 minutes of football to his name.
He scored ten goals and provided one assist in 11 matches for Rangers’ B team, which earned him a chance in the senior squad.
His former academy manager, Graeme Murty, has praised Lowry’s technical ability, range of passing, and self-confidence. Rangers will be hoping that Lowry recovers in time for the crucial game against rivals Celtic in early April.
