Rangers striker Sima out 'long term' after AFCON injury


Rangers manager Philippe Clement said striker Abdallah Sima will be out "long term" after injuring his thigh while at the Africa Cup of Nations with Senegal.

The on-loan Brighton forward, who has scored 15 goals in 33 games for the Ibrox club this season, has picked up the injury despite not featuring for his nation in the tournament.

The Senegal FA confirmed Sima would return to Rangers after he picked up the injury in training and a statement warned he could face a "long period of unavailability" after failing to get any minutes in the tournament in the Ivory Coast.

Sima will now return from the Ivory Coast and Clement expects to have a full update after Rangers' game against Hibernian on Wednesday night.

"I expect to have more news today, tomorrow at the latest, from my medical staff and I always listen to them and not other people," said the Belgian.
