Rangers handed boost as duo return

Rangers manager Ally McCoist has been handed a much-needed injury boost after Kirk Broadfoot and Kane Hemmings both returned to full training.

Defender Broadfoot has been out of action since December, while young striker Hemmings has been sidelined for the last two months with his latest injury set-back.

However, the pair could be in contention for this weekend's Scottish Premier League game at Dunfermline and set to bolster McCoist's sparse resources.

Ibrox first-team coach Ian Durrant said: “Kane and Kirk are back with us now so that's two more bodies we've got to add to the squad which can only be a good thing.

“They have been working hard and are clearly desperate to get back playing.

“That's good to see especially as we have a big month ahead now.

“We have three really important SPL games coming up in February and our target is to take nine points.

“That's the challenge for us and the more players the manager has available to him the better.”
