Rangers will return to action on Sunday afternoon, as Graeme Murty’s side will take on Brendan Rodgers’s Celtic at Ibrox in the Old Firm derby.
Ahead of the match, Rangers manager Murty has given an update on the injury situation of Lee Wallace and Declan John.
Wallace has been out of action since September due to a double hernia, while fellow left-back John has been on the sidelines lately due to a groin injury.
Manager Murty has told Rangers’ official website that he is hopeful that 30-year-old Scotland international left-back Wallace and 22-year-old Wales international left-back - who can also operate as a left-wing-back - will be fit in time for the match against Celtic.
Rangers fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to Murty’s injury update on Wallace and John, with many stating that they would like the latter to start if both recover in time for the match against Celtic.
Not a hard choice, DJ all day long, his fitness & sharpness is literally months ahead of LW— EmployeeBenefitTrustee54 (@RangersW4TP) March 6, 2018
DJ at this point of season. Wallace needs games— James McLean (@jamesmcl1963) March 6, 2018
John only because Wallace wouldn’t be sharp enough at the moment— The Great Waldo (@ThenNow4evaBlue) March 6, 2018
Declan John has merited that start— charlie croker (@charliecroker54) March 6, 2018
John is better going forward (more direct). Wallace is far superior in defence. In my opinion. Difficult choice. Although- a bit of a risk to play Wallace considering the length of time he has been out and his lack of games.— Alan (@AG_77) March 6, 2018

Has to be John at the moment. Long term is another debate— Tom McDavid (@powerranger1872) March 6, 2018
DJ simply because how long Lees been out injured.— D A V I D - N I M M O (@Nimsay1872) March 6, 2018
Wallace hasn’t played in months so it’s 100% John at LB if fit, would play Halliday fully fit before Wallace at the moment— Scott Cameron (@Cammy26_2) March 6, 2018
No brainer John 1000000000%— jmf (@johnfinlayson13) March 6, 2018
dj all day long, Wallace is finished i'm afraid as a starter but can be a good backup— Blue_Order(@_Blue_Order_) March 6, 2018
