Rangers and Scotland forward Jane Ross has revealed that she has a serious knee injury that will see her facing a lengthy rehabilitation.
Ross injured her cruciate ligament while playing for her club in a friendly against Spartans earlier this week.
The 32-year-old is now going to miss a sizeable chunk of the season as she recovers.
Ross tweeted “A tough one to take. Gutted to have ruptured my ACL on Wed night and will be facing a period of time on the sidelines. Grateful for the support of the club and the people around me I’ve no doubts there are many highs and lows to come but I’m ready for the challenge that lies ahead.”
The forward, who has 62 goals from 146 Scotland caps, moved to Rangers last summer from Manchester United and was part of the team that won their first league title, ending Glasgow’ City’s long period of dominance.
