Gers’ Bates to un­dergo an­kle scan

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - SPORTS -

RANGERS de­fender David Bates (above) will have a scan on the an­kle in­jury he suf­fered in Sun­day’s 3-2 de­feat by Celtic this week but bro­ken bones have been ruled out.

The 21-year-old was caught by Tom Rogic’s fol­low through when the Hoops mid­fielder fired past Gers keeper Wes Foder­ing­ham to make it 1-1 and was car­ried from the field with only 15 min­utes played.

“David is go­ing to have a scan on his an­kle, he has not bro­ken it,” boss Graeme Murty said.

“It is a freak in­jury, he steps to the ball and goes to try and make a block and the ball flicks off his shin which takes it out of Wes’ grasp and as Rogic has a shot he comes down on David’s an­kle.

“It looked a nasty one at the time and David is ob­vi­ously up­set but we won’t know the ex­tent of it un­til we have it scanned.”
