BBC Report: Philippe Clement Shared Midfielder Injury issues are the biggest Gers headache….

Philippe Clement has described fitness issues at Rangers as his “biggest puzzle” as he added another two players to the injury list.

Midfielder Nico Raskin will miss the trip to Dundee in the cinch Premiership on Wednesday night after being carried off the field on a stretcher during the 2-1 home win over Hearts on Sunday with an ankle injury, and defender John Souttar joined him on the sidelines with a muscle complaint.

Striker Kemar Roofe has been taken out of action as Rangers try to get to the root of his long-standing fitness issues while defender Dujon Sterling and winger Rabbi Matondo remain out with left-back Borna Barisic also missing recently.

Striker Danilo came off the bench to score the late winner against Hearts wearing a mask to protect a recent facial injury and, while attacker Tom Lawrence has returned to training, the trip to Tayside comes too soon for him.

Asked if he was surprised by the conditioning of some of the players at Ibrox since arriving to take over from Michael Beale, Gers boss Clement said: “Next question please.”

However, during the pre-match media conference at the club’s training ground he expressed his bewilderment.
