Joe Aribo is set for a spell on the sidelines after he suffered a setback with his ankle injury, reports Completesports.com.
Aribo has missed Rangers last two league games against Kilmarnock and Hamilton Academical due to injury.
The injury is however worse than initially feared.
There were worries that the Nigeria international would need to go under the knife, but he is now expected to spend up to six weeks on the sidelines.
“Joe Aribo has had a setback with an ankle strain and will be missing for four to six weeks,”Rangers manager Steven Gerrard told a news conference on Friday morning.
“It’s a big blow with Joe. He is a player we rate rightly, it is actually good news as it was a situation that it could have required surgery and but he doesn’t and we hope he can be back in four weeks.
“It will be a blow however as he is a major talent.
“Allan McGregor will have a scan on his knee over the weekend and Jordan Jones has returned with a small quad issue.
“Cedric Itten, Borna Barisic and Jermain Defoe are all back in full training.”
Aribo has scored one goal in three leagus outings for Rangers this season.
