Serious injury news confirmed at Ibrox minutes before Rangers v Motherwell

Prior to the Gers’ match against Motherwell, Rangers manager Philippe Clement has revealed that Oscar Cortes has sustained a significant injury and will be sidelined for an extended period of time.

The Light Blues, who are without their Colombian winger, welcome Stuart Kettlewell’s team to Ibrox on Saturday, March 2, hoping to extend their advantage over Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.

In his pre-match press conference on Friday, March 1, Clement had stated that the 20-year-old will miss the encounter on Saturday. However, the Belgian forward had revealed that the problem was more serious prior to the match against Motherwell.

Oscar will be sidelined for a considerable amount of time due to a significant injury, he stated in an interview with RangersTV on March 2. Given what he performed, it’s odd that he would sustain such an injury. We must determine whether to proceed with the operation and speak with Lens about it.

When will Oscar Cortes be fit to play for Rangers again?

Few players have been as good as Cortes since he arrived at Ibrox, despite Mohamed Diomande’s remarkable performance for the Light Blues. Rangers have garnered a lot of acclaim for their superb January recruitment.

Supporters may not get to watch the 20-year-old play for a few weeks at the worst, and if surgery is necessary, that time frame may extend to months, which could theoretically signal the end of Cortes’ season.

Cortes is unquestionably one of Clement’s main stars, and if his team is to defeat Celtic to win the Premiership this year, they will need to have all of their best players available and healthy from now until the end of the campaign.

It’s to be hoped that he recovers more quickly than anticipated and can play again in the upcoming weeks and months. However, it will be intriguing to watch how this latest setback in his injury history may affect a potential permanent transition.
