Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has said that scans revealed that Flying Eagles star Nnamdi Ofoborh has heart issues.

This, the coach said, would put the career of the 21-year-old midfielder who joined the club on a free transfer from Bournemouth this summer on hold.

After his side drew 2-2 with Arsenal in their friendly at Ibrox, Gerrard said “I don’t think you’ll see him in the short term.

“Unfortunately something has flagged up with his ECG, which is the heart test.

“We’ve got top medical people here at the club now and we check all the players thoroughly from head to toe when they arrive.

“Unfortunately there’s been a bit of a red flag with a heart issue so he’s going to see some specialists in the coming weeks and we need to do more tests before we move forward.

“It’s disappointing and frustrating but we’ll have to manage and cope.
