Sutherland sustained cruciate knee ligament damage during a loan spell at Leyton Orient in November but he was back running just four months after surgery.

Now the 20-year-old is back in full training, four months ahead of schedule, and he is hoping to be able to give Harry Redknapp a welcome boost to his squad.

With the transfer window now shut, Sutherland is hoping that he can make an impact for Rangers, who look set to battle it out in the Championship play-offs.

Sutherland is yet to make his first-team debut for Rangers, but was handed a squad number by Redknapp last summer and is now hoping he will get the chance to use it.

"It has been the toughest few months of my football career for me but the manager and club have been fantastic with me," Sutherland told Sky Sports.

"I just want to repay everyone for their hard work and support, particularly the fans.

"As a boyhood QPR fan it would feel great to help them get back to the Premier League."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?
