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.
