The right-back has been a model of consistency since signing for the Championship side from Newcastle last summer and has been an ever-present so far this season.

However, he has sustained a small fracture in his back and Rangers have therefore recalled Max Ehmer from a loan spell with Carlisle.

"It's a big blow," said Rs boss Harry Redknapp. "Danny has played every game for us this season but he's picked up a back problem in recent weeks and it's got worse.

"He will be out for a while which is a blow to us, because he's been great since signing in the summer."

The 21-year-old Ehmer has impressed for Carlisle in League 1, making 14 appearances and scoring once since arriving in November.

Carlisle boss Graham Kavanagh said: "We're obviously disappointed, because Max has been fantastic for us.

"He's shown us that he has real quality and he has been a big part of our squad since joining. We wish him well."

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
