Rangers targeting Naismith return prior to season's end

Rangers manager Ally McCoist has revealed that Steven Naismith could be in action again this season.

The 25-year old forward has been sidelined since sustaining cruciate ligament damage in a knee in late October but is now back running and may feature for 'Gers before the current campaign ends.

"Stevie is doing really well and he was going for a scan today just to check up on his knee and make sure everything is okay," McCoist told Blues News.

"He's coming along really nicely but there is no point in rushing anything at the moment with the end of the season coming.

"With that said, it would be nice to see if Naisy' maybe could get a game in somewhere, although we'd obviously take advice from the medical team on that.

"For his own peace of mind, if nothing else, it would be good if he could get 45 minutes somewhere and then he could go away and have a holiday knowing he is absolutely fine.

"It's not a disaster if that doesn't happen, though, and if he comes back in pre-season instead we will be fine with that."
