GREGORY VIGNAL will have a chance to claim a place in the Rennes defence after Arnaud Le-Lan was ruled out for six weeks.

25-year-old Le-Lan suffered a double sprain and a slight break of his ankle in the game against Le Mans at the weekend.

With Le-Lan in plaster, the Liverpool man will have the opportunity to play in his favoured position of left back.

Vignal is on a season long loan to the French side and will hope regular first team football will give him the chance to impress Reds boss Gerard Houllier.

The former Montpellier man has failed to establish himself at Anfield and was also sent out on loan last season to Bastia.
