Ugo Ehiogu and Kevin Thomson are set to miss the clash with Hapoel Tel Aviv.
Rangers have suffered a double injury blow with Ugo Ehiogu and Kevin Thomson set to miss this week's Uefa Cup tie with Hapoel Tel Aviv.
The duo picked up knocks during Rangers' 3-1 win at Kilmarnock on Sunday.
Ehiogu was forced to limp off on 25 minutes, while Thomson aggravated an injury he picked up on international duty last week.
Gers boss Walter Smith expects to be without the pair for the trip to Israel.
"It doesn't look too bad although it's too early to assess the full extent at the moment," said Smith. "But it looks as though they will both miss Wednesday's game.
"Thomson said he felt it at half-time. It was an injury from the B international.
"He was keen to start and see how it was but, if he had stayed on, there could have been even more damage.
"We hope it will clear up fairly quickly."
