Injured Rangers youngster Alex Lowry has provided supporters with a positive injury update following his latest Instagram update.
Not that long ago, the 19-year-old was stretchered off the pitch while playing for the Scottish club’s B team this week following a heavy challenge that damaged his knee.
In an update on the situation, at the time, senior manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst said that the midfielder would be out for ‘some weeks’ and he was then also spotted on crutches (via The National).
However, in some positive news, it seems as though Lowry is now close to a return to action as he showed that he was stepping up his rehab.
Indeed, in an Instagram story, he wrote that he had his ‘boots back on’ while sharing an accompanying picture of himself ready to train once more.
TIF thoughts on Alex Lowry and Rangers…
Up to this point in the season, the midfielder has been limited to only making appearances for the youth side, having scored five goals in five games for the Rangers B side.
Even so, with seven senior appearances to his name with the first team – in which time he has scored twice and claimed two assists – Lowry has proven that he really is a top talent who can make a difference now.
Indeed, former academy coach Graeme Murty said he is ‘remarkable’ and ‘unlike anyone else at Rangers’ for his age. He told The Scotsman: “Alex is unlike anyone else at Rangers I would suggest in terms of his technical ability, the range of passing that he sees and executes, his individual ability to go past people and he has a remarkable degree of self-confidence.
“He believes in himself to the upmost and he wants the ball, he’s hungry for it and wants to make things happen.”
With that in mind, it certainly will be a big boost to Van Bronckhorst and the rest of the team to have the teenage midfielder approaching full fitness again.
