"Today, Leon is sore but well. He will now rest completely and follow a graded return to play under the supervision of the medical team.”

King is due to feature for Scotland Under-21s this week in a friendly with Iceland at Fir Park. However, due to the concussion protocol his involvement may well be unlikely. Rangers are not in action again until next month due to the break for the World Cup.
