Crock Ferguson likely to miss Rangers season

Barry Ferguson's calf injury may be serious enough to bring to a premature end the Rangers skippers season. The deposed captain suffered a calf injury less than two minutes into Tuesday's reserve draw with Hearts at Stirling Albion's Forthbank Stadium and was forced to leave the field.

Reserve-team coach Tommy Wilson anticipates Ferguson will definitely miss Saturday's Homecoming Scottish Cup semi-final against St Mirren and the following weekend's Clydesdale Bank Premier League clash with Hearts.

Wilson told the club's official website: "Barry just felt his calf pop.

"He was really up for the game so I was really disappointed when he had to come off.

"He was desperate to get back to action and has played for me a couple of times in the reserves this season when he was coming back from his ankle injury.

"The doctor has examined him and strapped him up and I think he may have torn a couple of fibres in his calf muscle.

"However long that keeps him out for I'm not sure, but I wouldn't imagine he'll be fit for this weekend or the week after."
