Dortmund injury boost as Haaland edges closer to Rangers return - report

Borussia Dortmund have been handed an injury boost after Erling Haaland trained today for the Bundesliga giants ahead of Thursday’s Europa League clash against Rangers at Ibrox.

According to German outlet RevierSport, the Norway superstar completed the full session as he steps up his recovery from the injury that kept him out of the first leg.

While much of Marco Rose’s side were given the day off after thrashing Borussia Moenchengladbach 6-0 yesterday, Haaland was put through his paces alongside the Bundesliga giants’ reserve squad.

With 23 goals in just 20 games this season, Haaland has continued his frightening stats in front of goal and his potential return to action is one that should concern Gio van Bronckhorst and his staff.

The Gers two-goal advantage might just be enough to see them through to the last 16 of the Europa League – but the Germans are unlikely to make it easy at Ibrox on Thursday.

Having brought Haaland in to train with the reserves while the first-team squad were off would hint at the Germans pushing the Norwegian international to be fit to salvage their Europa League ambitions.

With plenty at stake for Dortmund – it wouldn’t be a surprise to see them gamble on Haaland’s fitness at Ibrox on Thursday night as they desperately try and overturn Rangers’ lead.
