Clive Tyldesley has revealed a 'little bird' provided an update on James Tavernier's injury.

The Rangers captain went down injured against Royal Antwerp last week and hobbled off, leading to serious worries about the remainder of his season.

Tavernier, 29, missed his side's 4-1 win over Dundee Utd at the weekend, but Tyldesley claimed during commentary for Gers TV that his source told him the skipper's injury is not as bad as initially feared.

The commentator said: "A little bird has told me that it’s not as serious as first feared. Let’s hope that little bird is correct."

Tavernier was joined by Ryan Jack and Kemar Roofe on the treatment table after Sunday's win over the Tangerines at Ibrox. And manager Steven Gerrard provided an update on the two players.

On Jack he said: "We'll check that out in the next 24 hours. We'll send him for a scan. We're hoping he has reported the injury before it's become a bigger problem.

"He's felt some tightness in the calf. But until we get a scan on it we won't know the extent of it. I'm disappointed to see him go off because he's come back from the previous injury really bright. Everyone knows how important he is to us.

"Fingers crossed the outcome of that scan is positive rather than negative.

"James and Kemar will miss the next couple of weeks at least. It's difficult to put an exact date on their return but they will certainly miss the next couple of weeks.

"All being well we should see them in two to three weeks."
