Rangers Get Double Fitness Boost For Trip to Slovenia

Rangers Get Double Fitness Boost For Trip to Slovenia

Rangers have got a double fitness boost ahead of their trip to Maribor in the Europa League.

The Ibrox side are on their way to Slovenia for their Europa League third round qualifying second leg clash against Maribor tomorrow night.

And they’ll be confident of going through after earning a 3-1 lead in Glasgow last week.

It was a strong performance from Steven Gerrard’s men at a packed stadium and there’s plenty of positivity going into tomorrow’s game after the 2-0 win over St Mirren also at the weekend.

Rangers fans may have been worrying over the fitness of Ryan Jack and Lassana Coulibaly ahead of the match, with the pair appearing as doubts.

But they’ve both made the travelling party for Slovenia – and that should come as a big boost to Rangers:

Jack has been very impressive at the start of Gerrard’s reign as manager, but had to miss out the last two games after picking up an injury late on in the 1-1 draw with Aberdeen on Scottish Premiership opening weekend.

Coulibaly picked up a slight knock late on against St Mirren on Sunday, but he’s also made the squad after recovering.

You’d expect both to have a right good chance of featuring tomorrow night now.
