The 24-year-old, who has missed the Scottish champions' last eleven games because of a knee injury, is due to make his comeback in Saturday's Premier League match against Falkirk FC. His return will be a relief to manager Alex McLeish, who has seen his side fail to record a victory in eight domestic outings, the worst run in the club's history. "Thomas will make his return and although he won't be able to play the full 90 minutes, we hope he can give us a spark," said McLeish.
However, it is not all good news for the Glasgow team. Midfielder Brahim Hemdani has been sidelined for six weeks with hamstring trouble, while defenders Julien Rodriguez (ankle ligaments) and Olivier Bernard (knee cartilage) are unlikely to play again in 2005. All three will miss the Inter game at Ibrox, which Rangers enter as Group H's second-placed side, one point above FC Artmedia who host FC Porto the same night.
