RANGERS could lose Cammy Bell for three months after the goalkeeper hurt his shoulder in Friday night’s win over Falkirk.
The Scottish international stopper was injured in the first minute of his side’s 2-0 win but, after receiving treatment, was able to stay on the field, making a few crucial saves when the game was tied at 0-0.
It has since been revealed that the keeper suffered a dislocated shoulder, a fact only discovered after he participated in training the following morning.
Bell was sent to a specialist on Monday and Rangers anxiously wait the full extent of the problem.
It could be that all he requires is a pain killing injection and a few weeks rest. The worst case scenario is surgery, which would likely keep him out until November.
Backup Steve Simonsen took over the goalkeeping duties in Rangers’ 8-1 win over Clyde in the Petrofac Training Cup on Monday, and is expected to retain his place for Saturday’s meeting with Dumbarton.
