Rangers star Filip Helander has revealed that only now is he feeling fully fit after a niggling foot injury.

That being said, the towering defender, a £4 million signing from Bologna [The Scotsman], has only played two Premiership games after struggling with injury earlier in the season.

The 26-year-old is on international duty and could start in his country's Euro 2020 qualifiers over the coming days.

 

And Helander has admitted that he's finally starting to feel 100 percent.

He told The Scottish Sun: "I have had problems on and off with my foot since last spring, but it actually feels okay just now.

"I had a good rest over the summer, but I've had a lot of matches recently and it's not really healed, but I feel in good shape anyway."

Helander was previously a doubt for clashes with Malta and Sweden over the next week, but it looks like he is optimistic about playing some sort of role.

From Rangers boss Steven Gerrard's point of view, he'll be happy that Helander is finding his fitness.

Having spent so much on him during the summer, there is major pressure on the big man to deliver, which means that there is also pressure on Gerrard.

And until he's fully fit, he can't show the Ibrox faithful what their money has bought.
