Arveladze out with ankle injury

Rangers FC forward Shota Arveladze is out of action for a month after injuring his ankle.

Rangers FC forward Shota Arveladze is out of action for a month after suffering an ankle injury during his side's 6-0 Scottish Cup defeat of Forfar Athletic FC.

Two goals
The Georgian international scored twice in the game but was taken off at half-time and will miss the Glasgow club's forthcoming Scottish Premier League matches. He was already ineligible for Rangers' UEFA Cup campaign as he played for previous club AFC Ajax in the UEFA Champions League earlier this season against Celtic FC.

Kanchelskis assist
Arveladze told uefa.com: "I asked to be substituted myself. After I scored my second goal, one of the defenders kicked me in the ankle. There were three minutes left before half-time and I tried to go on. I even managed to assist [Andrei] Kanchelskis's goal."
