Sebastien Faure: Facing race to be fit for Rangers' final friendly against Ottaw

The central defenders picked up injuries in the 2-1 defeat of Victoria Highlanders in British Columbia and will be assessed before Wednesday's clash with Ottawa Fury.

Former France U20 international Faure is causing most concern having left the Centennial Stadium in a knee brace following extensive treatment on the field while ex-Hearts defender Zaliukas suffered a groin strain in the closing stages of the match.

Manager Ally McCoist is keen to avoid any further injuries at TD Place having already lost the services of full-back Ricky Foster (hamstring) and Fraser Aird (knee).

Assistant manager Kenny McDowall told the club's official website: "We won’t know how Sebastien and Marius are straight away but hopefully they will be okay.

"We don’t want injuries mounting up but we brought 25 players with us to North America because of how intense our schedule is.

"When you’re playing so many games in such a short timescale you can pick up injuries. We’ll see how the boys are then we’ll take things from there.”

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
