Chris Burke is expecting a tough test if he is to regain his place in the Rangers team after recovering from an ankle injury.

The winger has came through a number of reserve games unscathed and is now getting ready to challenge for a first-team place.

“Competition here is immense just now. Our squad is very big and there is a lot of talent," the 24-year-old said.

"It will be very difficult for me to get involved again because it's not just one or two battling for places. There are three or four all going for the same spots all over the park and that means that if you're playing, you have to make the most of it.

"I'm happy with the way things are going for me and hopefully when I'm fully fit I get my chance. Things are going well for me in the reserves and I'm very happy with my progress.

"My injury feels a lot better and it is good that my ankle is more stable now and close to 100%.

"It can only improve with more games and the most important thing at the moment is for me to continue building up my fitness. The more I play, the more that will happen."
