Ramsey and Roofe could return for Rangers in EL semi


Giovanni van Bronckhorst will give Kemar Roofe and Aaron Ramsey "as long as possible" to prove their fitness for Rangers' Europa League semi-final second leg against RB Leipzig on Thursday night.

The Jamaica striker and on-loan Wales midfielder have been out with respective knee and hamstring problems since the Scottish Cup semi-final win over Celtic at Hampden Park last month.

The Gers were beaten 1-0 by the Bundesliga outfit in Germany last Thursday night and, ahead of the return fixture at Ibrox, Van Bronckhorst said: "It depends how the training will go. When they got injured we all knew that they would work towards the game tomorrow [Thursday].

Of course I will wait as long as possible, but the most important thing for me is that they are physically able to play a part in tomorrow's game, that is always the deciding factor.

"We still have one day to prepare. Today will be an important day for both. I cannot tell you if they are in the squad for tomorrow or not."
