Rangers full-back Steven Whittaker suggests he may be back in action later this month.

The 27-year old has been sidelined since Christmas Eve before having hernia surgery last month but he is now back in full training and is targeting the March 25 Old Firm derby against Celtic at Ibrox.

"I'm gradually getting there and it's been a long process, I've had to hold myself back at times," he told the club's official website.

"But I'm at the stage now where I can try and get a bit of training under my belt and hopefully I'll be back fit as quickly as possible.

"I am just looking to get in as many sessions as I can with the boys before the Celtic game."
