Gerrard eager to see internationals battle on
Rangers coach Steven Gerrard insists his team do have a number of fitness woes ahead of the derby clash with Celtic this weekend.
The Gers had 10 players called up to international duty last week, a sign of how much progress they are making under Gerrard.
Steven Davis, Kyle Lafferty, Glen Kamara, Eros Grezda, Lassana Coulibaly, Borna Barisic, and Alfredo Morelos all saw action at full international level with their respective countries, as did Under-21 players Ross McCrorie, Robby McCrorie and Nikola Katic.
However, Barisic suffered a hamstring while on duty and Gerrard admits some of the other players may be struggling.
He told RangersTV: "First and foremost they have obviously done well to be called up and it is great to see them getting international recognition.
"But from my point of view, I was just sitting at home hoping they all come back fit and available. Obviously we have had a bit of a setback with Borna [Barisic], who has a bit of a hamstring problem which makes him a huge doubt for the weekend.
"So that is disappointing, but the rest, so far, seem to be OK. My main concern is they come back healthy and ready to go at the weekend."
