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.”

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
