Winger return will boost Ally

ALLY McCOIST has a small enough squad without losing players like David Templeton, Francisco Sandaza, Sebastien Faure and Anestis Argyriou to injury for a few weeks.

Injuries happen in football, though, and there is nothing you can do except wait until they are fit again.

Ally will be disappointed, but he will focus on the ones who are there, not the ones who are not available.

The guys who are injured cannot do anything except try to get themselves fit so the manager has to make sure that those who can play are ready.

The big one for me is the loss of Templeton, who gives Rangers something different going forward.

He can really excite fans and terrify the defenders he is playing against with his pace and trickery.

Once they get Templeton back, there will be a lot more creativity in the team and I think you will see Rangers scoring more goals.

He is one of the few players in Scotland who can get fans off their seats. He is a proper winger who loves taking people on and scoring goals, and that has been missing.
