Andy Little: Injured in clash of heads with Alex Whittle of Dunfermline

The Northern Ireland international left the pitch on a stretcher wearing a neck brace after a clash of heads and was taken to hospital, where scans confirmed the full extent of the injuries.

Rangers believe Little will not be back in action until the start of 2014 and will have corrective facial surgery early next week.

Little has been a vital cog in Ally McCoist's squad this season, scoring six goals to add to the 25 he grabbed in 2012/13.

Little wrote on his Twitter page: "Out of hospital. Unfortunately need to wait until Monday for surgery because of too much swelling! Taken back by all the msgs. Thank you."

Rangers are yet to discover the extent of the injury suffered by Richard Foster, who left Ibrox on crutches after suffering an ankle injury.

The club website said: "He has hurt his ankle but there is a lot of swelling around it and the club's medical staff will have to wait until that subsides before they can determine the specific nature of his injury."

In what proved to be a bruising encounter, Lee McCulloch was also forced out of the match for 15 minutes to receive stitches in a head wound.

McCoist said: "He got six stitches which took a whole lot longer than I was hoping for to be honest with you.

"But the skipper is the skipper and his main objective was to get back on the park. Thankfully he did and led us to another great victory and converted the penalty with aplomb."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
