Rangers defender Emilson Cribari will be sidelined for around a month with a calf injury.
The 32-year old Brazilian centre-back tore his calf muscle prior to last weekendâ€™s clash with Peterhead and will now be out for at least four weeks with manager Ally McCoist confirming the news.
"Unfortunately it's not great. He has a first degree tear in his lower calf just above the Achilles and it looks like he will be out longer term too,â€ť he said.
In addition, young defenders Ross Perry and Sebastien Faure will both be out for a number of weeks as they get set for hernia operations.
