Rangers manager Steven Gerrard says he will make a late decision on the involvement of Nigerian-born forward Sheyi Ojo in their Europa League play-off, second tie against Legia Warsaw Poland on Thursday.

Ojo 22, suffered a knock in the Gers’ goalless first-leg draw with the Legionaries in Poland last week.

The injury subsequently prevented the youngster from featuring in his side’s 1-0 victory over St. Mirren in Sunday’s league game.

Gerrard, who revealed the forward has returned to training, will make a decision on the winger’s fitness before their meeting with Aleksandar Vukovic’s men at Ibrox.

“Sheyi Ojo was back out this morning, he seems fine but [it] will be a late decision tomorrow morning. Otherwise, we are fine,” Gerrard said in a pre-match press conference.

Ojo has been impressive since teaming up with Rangers in the summer, having scored four goals in eight games, including three in the European tournament.

Victory over Legia Warsaw will see Rangers progress into the Europa League group stage.
