Rangers forward Danilo puts in hard yards during international break

Rangers forward Danilo has been spotted putting in the hard yards during the international break.

The Brazillian, who joined the Ibrox side from Feyenoord during the summer transfer window, has struggled for regular game time under Michael Beale.

He has scored twice in nine appearances for Rangers this season after completing a £6million move from Holland.

Danilo shared a video to his Instagram of him doing sprints in training at an unnamed location as he looks to build fitness ahead of the trip to St Johnstone once the Scottish Premiership returns.

Meanwhile, Rangers hero Barry Ferguson feels the Ibrox side can kick on after the international break due to their fixture schedule.

The former Light Blues captain has backed Michael Beale to turn things around in Govan after a tough start to the season.

Back-to-back defeats to PSV Eindhoven and Celtic have piled the pressure on the Englishman, but Ferguson feels there is still plenty to play for.

Writing in his Daily Record column, he said: "Michael Beale and his players have been battered from pillar to post since Sunday afternoon and that comes with the territory when you let the Rangers support down. I know. I’ve been there and it is a horrible feeling

"I was over in Eindhoven and although PSV were a level above, the manner in which Rangers lost disappointed their fans. Then you bounce straight into Sunday’s game and while I wasn’t over-confident I thought Rangers would get a result against Celtic and it didn’t happen.

"You can’t change the past, but you can affect the future, though, and that’s the message those Rangers players should be hearing over the coming days. There’s a lot of noise just now and the only way to quieten it is to do the business on the pitch.

"That starts with travelling up to Perth at 12.30pm next Saturday. I know a lot of people want the manager out and I understand the anger but I do think it’s far too early for Michael Beale to lose his job. The international break gives everybody, inside and outside the building, the chance to calm down. But the players have got to come back ready to bust a gut because the only way to kill the noise is to win games.

"I’ve looked at the fixture list and after the St Johnstone game, Rangers have five of their next six domestic games - including the Viaplay Cup quarter final with Livingston - at Ibrox.

"They’ve got Motherwell, Aberdeen, the cup game with Livi, Hearts and Hibs in that sequence with the only away game in Paisley, so that’s an opportunity to get back on an even keel and build some serious momentum."
