Rangers striker Kenny Miller insists he is now pain-free after being plagued by shin splints in pre-season.
The 30-year-old was unable to train for the first two days of Gers' trip to Australia because of the problem.
The injury has slowly been improving allowing Miller to play, although he has conceded the pain at times was unbearable.
Miller found the target in Rangers' 2-1 win over Blackburn and the experienced hit-man is pleased he is now on the mend.
"For a couple of weeks, I've found the shin splints problem pretty frustrating," he told the club's official website.
"I've not been able to train as much as I'd have liked and the pain has been pretty unbearable at times.
"I've found myself lying in bed at night and it's been absolutely throbbing. It has been waking me up and all sorts.
"It hasn't been great but I took a few days when we got here in the hope that would allow it to settle down.
"That seems to have worked and during the game with Blackburn on Sunday, I felt pretty good.
"It has been pleasing for me to score a couple of goals, even despite the injury. It was nice to get on the scoresheet."
