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.”

ever ceases to amaze me when ex players come out with comments like that. Clearly they have zero interest in the best interests of a club that provided them with a living to be making such idiotic and boorish comments as that. Shame on you Jimmy Case.

ait, so now he can get injured when he's not on international duty? It's almost as if his previous injury could've happened at any time and being with the England squad had nothing to do with it.
