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."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
