The 26-year-old is a right-back by trade, but the former Liverpool defender has been deployed as a left-back.

Rangers manager Gerrard has said that the Englishman will be back in action in about 10 days’ time.

Gerrard told The Scottish Sun about Flanagan: “Jon previously had a hernia op on the right side, which we got him back from. We checked the other side and it was all fine, but then it flared up a touch.

“So during the international break he went in and had the other side done. He’s not far away. Probably about ten days.”

Big season for Jon Flanagan

Flanagan joined Rangers in the summer of 2018 and is out of contract at the Scottish Premiership club at the end of the season.

The right-back has not been exactly great for the Gers, and for him to stay at Ibrox beyond next summer, he needs a big season.

The defender has to make the most of the chances he will get for Rangers this season, especially at left-back, as James Tavernier is the number one right-back for the Gers and probably in the Scottish Premiership as well.
