Andy Webster is targeting a return to action for Rangers before the end of the season.

The defender joined The Gers on loan from Wigan in January but is yet to make his debut for Walter Smith's side having injured his knee in his first training session.

Smith has hinted that Webster could be in line for a permanent deal, however the former Hearts man wants to make his debut in the current campaign.

"I would hope to squeeze in a game or two before the end of the season although that depends on my fitness and the manager's thoughts," Webster said.

"I just want the chance to show the manager what I can do. When this opportunity came about I wanted to come here and play football.

"It's a great club with 50,000 fans watching every week and that's what I wanted to sample. There aren't many people who get to play for a massive club like this.

"It's been about eight weeks since I had the operation. The rehab has gone well. My knee feels great and I've not had any sort of problem with it. That's a big relief."

Smith expects Webster to be available in a fortnight, although fellow stopper Steven Smith will not be rushed back.

"I would think Andy will be in the team within two weeks but we may be a little more cautious with Stevie as he has been out for a long time," said Smith.
