Emilson Cribari: Out for a month with torn calf muscle

Emilson Cribari: Out for a month with torn calf muscle

The Brazilian defender is undergoing treatment on a torn calf muscle that forced him out of last weekend's victory over Peterhead.

Rangers boss Ally McCoist is already without Seb Faure and fellow defender Ross Perry, who are both sidelined for a number of weeks following hernia surgery.

After scans confirmed the extent of Emilson's injury, McCoist said: "Unfortunately it's not great. He has a first degree tear in his lower calf just above the Achilles and it looks like he will be out longer term too.

"It looks as though Ross has a hernia problem which will need operated on and that is going to be six or seven weeks sadly.

"So it looks as though we will be without these two lads for a number of weeks now.

"Sebastien will also be five weeks minimum so that's another problem.

"However, I felt Chris Hegarty and Lee McCulloch did well at the heart of the defence last Saturday."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
