RICHARD GOUGH, the Rangers captain, will be sidelined for about three weeks with a recurrence of a thigh injury.

The 30-year-old Scotland defender was hurt during the first half of the Premier Division victory over Dundee United at Ibrox Park on Tuesday, and required hospital treatment for internal bleeding.

Gough, who missed four games in November and December because of the same injury, was also detained for observation last night.

Ian Ferguson, the Rangers midfielder, is out for two matches after breaking a finger in the same game.
