Rangers defender Filip Helander has picked up a foot injury and is a doubt for Sweden's Euro 2020 qualifiers, according to their manager.

The £3.5 million defender has settled in well to Steven Gerrard's side after his summer move from Bologna after gradually been introduced to the team.

But he missed the weekend romp over Hamilton Accies with a foot knock and Sweden boss Janne Andersson has revealed it's causing them concern.

Sweden face Malta away this week before a crunch home game against Spain in Stockholm.

And Helander is a doubt for both.

Andersson said: "Unfortunately, we are carrying quite a few knocks in the squad.

"Filip Helander has a problem with his foot, so he will have to be monitored. 

"He is an important player so we hope he is all right for the games."

Helander has won ten caps for Sweden and won four of those this year.
