The centre-back is however in contention for the trip to Easter Road.

“I’m confident that Roofe will pull through as he was sensible and didn’t take any risks. Balogun should hopefully be available.Jack, Aribo and Barker won’t be available sadly,” Gerrard told a press conference on Friday.

“Morelos will be fine for Sunday, he has recovered great from the weekend.”

Balogun has featured in three league games for Rangers this season.
