Darren McGregor: Richard Foster's return from injury will be a great addition for Rangers

Rangers star Darren McGregor has hailed the return of Richard Foster.

Rangers defender Darren McGregor has hailed the return of right back Richard Foster during an interview with the club's official website.

Rangers drew 2-2 away at Heart of Midlothian last weekend, but were leading the game 2-0 before a fightback from the Scottish Championship title winners.

The game also featured a return to the starting line-up for defender Richard Foster, who has been out of action since February.

The 29-year-old managed to play 81 minutes of the game before being hauled off for Lee McCulloch - and his exit from the game coincided with Hearts' two goals to earn a draw.

Foster's will be a welcome sight for Rangers fans, especially considering that they start their play-off campaign this weekend against Queen of the South.

The former Aberdeen man will be in contention to start again, and team-mate McGregor has told the Rangers official website that his return is a real boost to Stuart McCall's squad, having set up Kenny Miller's goal on Sunday.

"Fozzy is really good at that, he showed in previous games - I think it was against Raith Rovers - he set Jon Daly up twice so he's a natural right back and you can tell when he's going forward he done that many times before," said McGregor.

"He done well, I think he was a wee bit gassed towards the end and he admitted that himself but great to see him back after he was out for four weeks with a hernia op," he added. "I know what it's like to have injuries and they are not the nicest things to have so I'm just glad he's back and he's building back up to fitness because he'll definitely be an addition to the squad."
