Crocked Kyle Bartley forced to quit Rangers

Kyle Bartley

Kyle Bartley has confirmed he has played his last game for Rangers after being told he faces three months on the sidelines.

The on-loan Arsenal defender suffered ligament damage in a Europa League tie against PSV Eindhoven earlier this month.

He had impressed for the Scottish champions since his arrival at Ibrox in January and was set to remain at Rangers until the end of the season.

Bartley said: “I couldn't have wished for a better club for a loan spell.

“I've been told I've got a grade three medial ligament tear and I'm looking at three months out.

“As things stand I've played my last game for Rangers.

“I wasn't there too long but I've still got plenty of good memories.”
