Rangers have been boosted by the return to training of injured duo Niko Kranjcar and Danny Wilson.

Kranjcar, who missed the majority of last season through injury, suffered a knee problem in early September that forced him to miss the last four games. He will be slowly reintegrated into full training.

Wilson, meanwhile, has made just three substitute appearances this season following a calf complaint but he too was back training at Auchenhowie this week.

Manager Pedro Caixinha told Rangers TV: "Niko started with us yesterday and he will be with us today again.

"It is like a programme, two days on and one day off with Steve (Walker) doing the physio work.

"And Danny Wilson, he is supposed to start with us today so let's see how it goes."

Bruno Alves has also made a full recovery after a calf injury, and is training with the Portugal national side after Caixinha chose not to risk aggravating the problem on the artificial surface at Hamilton.

Alves posted on Instagram: "Happy for first training after injury and back to Portugal national team!"

Rangers were supposed to be flying out to Canada to play against Benfica in the Eusebio Cup before the game was cancelled, but the team will now play a friendly behind closed doors against Morton.

Caixinha added: "It was disappointing and frustrating because we were about to be together with the team away from Auchenhowie. It was important in this moment in time, but that was the reality.

"We already had everything planned so we needed to re-plan everything and it was good that Morton accepted the challenge to be here with us, so at least we have more time to work on the principles we really need to work on."
