Filip Helander: Rangers boss Steven Gerrard says defender out for ‘foreseeable future’ after surgery

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has revealed defender Filip Helander has undergone surgery on a knee injury and will be missing “for the foreseeable future”.

Helander suffered the injury in Saturday’s 2-1 win over St Johnstone and required a stretcher to leave the pitch at McDiarmid Park.

The 28-year-old will now miss Thursday’s Europa League match against Lyon at Ibrox and Gerrard says it will be “at least a few months” before the defender returns.


“Helander will be missing,” Gerrard said at his pre-match news conference.

“He has had surgery in the last 24-48 hours to fix an issue that they spotted when they went inside to have a look so he will be missing for the foreseeable future.

“The rest is as it was so we are in good health besides Fil.”

Gerrard added: “I’ve not had a chance to speak to Fil post-surgery but I will do as soon as possible to see how he is mentally and physically.
