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 weekend’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,” 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.
