Philippe Clement provides positive Abdallah Sima Rangers injury update as Ryan Jack closes in on return

Philippe Clement has revealed that both Abdallah Sima and Ryan Jack will be back in contention for some minutes against Hearts this weekend.

The Rangers boss has been without the pair for a lot of the season so far but they'll be back on the pitch at the right time with the Scottish Cup Final on the horizon on May 25. Clement and Gers were without as many as 11 top players against Dundee the other night but now the manager has confirmed one or two may well feature at some stage against the Jambos.

"Sima will be back in selection to play some minutes, very little as his first step back," the Belgian revealed. "Ryan Jack is also the same. Leon Balogun is a question mark for tomorrow but is close to returning."

The manager also provided further information on the other injuries as he hinted at personnel changes for the cup final next weekend as that's what's needed.

He said: "Souttar, Goldson, Barisic, Lawrence, Cortes, Matondo and Danilo are missing from training with injury. Everyone else in the squad now has a fight to make the selection for the cup final.

"There will be changes, we need changes. I think we are at the end of a cycle as a club, we need to change some thing and I want to end this cycle with a really big moment next Saturday at Hampden."
