Abdallah Sima Breaks Rangers Injury Silence, Drops Coded Clue on Return Timeline

Abdallah Sima has broken his silence since his untimely exit during Rangers’ victory over Hearts in the Scottish Cup semi-final. The 22-year-old, who has recently returned from injury, limped off during the game at Hampden Park after just 16 minutes, to be replaced by Ross McCausland. Philippe Clement, Rangers’ manager, confirmed that Sima had suffered another hamstring injury, adding to his woes after his previous injury sustained in January during AFCON duty with Senegal.

“We’re going to see and make an assessment tomorrow. He felt some tightness in his hamstring, I hope it’s not so bad. We hope we can have Abdallah in the next couple of weeks because he’s been really important in that period where he was fit and he was coming back now. So we will see,” Clement stated.

Despite concerns from fans that his season may be over, Sima appears more optimistic about his recovery. Setting his sights on another appearance at the national stadium, Sima took to Instagram, posting an image of the full-time result against Hearts with the comment: “On to the final.” He seems determined to return for Rangers’ upcoming clash against Celtic on May 25, the last game of the season.

Sima clearly has his sights set on running out for the Light Blues on a blockbuster derby day to round off the season. However, it remains to be seen if he will win his fitness race.

With the final assessment pending, Sima’s determination to return quickly for the crucial fixture against Celtic provides hope for Rangers supporters.
