Things just keep going from bad to worse for the Rangers at this point in time. They were knocked out from the Champions League qualifiers after losing 5-1 at the hands of PSV Eindhoven, a result that their fans were clearly not happy with. That was followed by a 1-0 defeat at Ibrox to Celtic. And now, one of their regular starters is out injured as well.

There has been a lot of speculation about Michael Beale and his future in recent days. Rumours broke out recently that he was on the brink of being shown the exit door but for the time being, he is still in the Ibrox hot seat.

Things are not getting any easier for Beale though and he certainly must be feeling the pressure. Amidst all this, it looks like he will be without Todd Cantwell for the next few games.

Cantwell featured against Celtic but did not do much of note. And now, it has been confirmed that he picked up an injury on the day as well.

As reported by the Daily Record, Beale said:

"“Unfortunately, Todd Cantwell will probably miss the next three or four games as a result of the challenge at the end of the game.”"

When asked further about Cantwell, Beale said:

"“Something with his knee picked up in a challenge towards the end of the game. He played on, we had to send him for a scan and thought it would be worse than it is, the initial diagnosis, so we’re probably two or one and a half weeks into that.”"

Of course, Celtic cannot afford to spend time looking at the going ons at Ibrox. They have enough on their plate as is.

They will be returning to Premiership action this weekend with a game against Dundee FC. The Hoops will surely want to pick up all three points and impress on the day, having gotten a goalless draw against St Johnstone the last time they played at Parkhead.

Then they will kick off their Champions League campaign in midweek by travelling to the Netherlands to take on Feyenoord at De Kuip. Celtic will be the underdogs on the day but at the same time, it is a game where they could get a result if they were at their best.
