Gutted Rangers star Aaron Ramsey facing fresh injury blow after limping out of Celtic Old Firm clash

Rangers midfielder Aaron Ramsey is facing a fresh injury blow after limping off during the Old Firm clash with Celtic on Sunday.

The Welshman had to be replaced during the first half of the Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden Park, and appeared to be holding his hamstring while walking off the field. The score was 0-0 at the time.

The exact nature of his injury isn't yet clear, but Ramsey was soon ushered straight down the tunnel by the Rangers medical team. He was then replaced by Scott Wright.

It's the latest in series of fitness setbacks for the 31-year-old, who's made just three league starts since completing a loan move to Ibrox back in January. It had seemed that Ramsey was just about to find his feet in Glasgow, having come through 80 minutes in the win over Braga earlier in the week.

However, he will now surely be considered a doubt for the Europa League semi-final tie with RB Leipzig at the end of this month. The first leg of that tie is pencilled in for April 28.

Wales boss Rob Page may also be a concerned, with Ramsey likely to be a key part of his plans for the upcoming World Cup qualifying play-off final. Wales are set to face either Scotland or Ukraine on June 5.
