. When I was back in time for the pre-season last summer, I injured my foot again. It turned out that it hadn't healed properly and I needed surgery. That's why it's taken so long. "Hopefully I can be back at the end of February or the beginning of March. There is a bit left. Everything in rehab has gone well so far." He insists retirement has never been an option despite rumours ciculating online that his career was over. When asked if it had been something he considered, he replied: "No no. Never. With the surgery, this foot will be like any other foot. "Besides, it's the right foot I had problems with and I could hardly use it before anyway... It's just a support leg. I have felt the support of the Rangers fans and I have a strong inner drive to get back and help the club in the spring." READ NEXT
