Kyle Lafferty has declared himself fit and ready to play a part in Rangers' quest for the SPL title.
The Northern Ireland international has been out of action since picking up an ankle injury during a meeting with Hearts on 21st March.
It was initially feared that the setback would rule him out for the remainder of the season, but he now looks set to play a key role in the Gers' final five games of the campaign.
With Walter Smith's men sitting just one point behind Old Firm rivals Celtic ahead of a weekend clash with Hearts, Lafferty's return come not have come at a better time.
"I've trained with the squad for the second time today and I'm available for selection on Sunday which is a big bonus for me," the 21-year-old striker told the club's official website.
"When I first got the injury I thought that was my season finished. I kept hearing it would be two months but then when I was told 4-6 weeks it gave me something to aim for.
"It's about five weeks since I did it now so I'm really happy with that.
"I had been doing well in the first 35 minutes or so against Hearts before I came off with the injury and now I'm just hoping to get a run-out and maybe a goal at the weekend.
"But I think it would be harsh on the lads that have come in if I went straight back in to the starting line-up because they have done really well and gone on a great run.
"So I know it is going to be difficult to get back in the team. I just have to work hard in training and if I get a chance in the game I need to show what I can do again.
"Of course everybody wants to be involved in the run-in and if we go about things the right way we should be okay. Hopefully I can play a big part in that now."
