Danilo has issued a message to Rangers fans from his hospital bed after suffering a horrific head injury at the weekend.

The Brazilian collided with Liam Gordon while scoring for the Gers in their 2-0 victory over St Johnstone on Saturday [16 September].

According to an update released by the Daily Record on Sunday [17 September], Danilo will now miss “several weeks” of action.
In a message posted on his Instagram story on Monday [18 September], Danilo paraphrased a Bible psalm.

“I lift my eyes to the mountains – where does my help come from?” he remarked. My assistance comes from the Lord, the Creator of heaven and earth.

“The Lord watches over you; the Lord is your shade at your right hand; neither the sun nor the moon will harm you during the day or at night.”The Lord will keep you safe from harm – he will keep an eye on your life; the Lord will keep an eye on your comings and goings both now and forevermore.”

Take a break.

It is critical that Danilo does not return to the field too soon after recovering from his head injury.

The collision at McDiarmid Park was brutal, to say the least, and denied the 24-year-old the opportunity to celebrate his goal in front of the Gers fans.


That goal was expected to kick-start Danilo’s Ibrox career, but instead he is now facing a miserable season on the sidelines.

“Several weeks” is a fairly vague statement, but Danilo is unlikely to return until after the November international break.



Michael Beale now has one fewer attacking option to select from, but this should ensure he can rely on a consistent starting lineup for the time being.

The most essential thing is that Danilo rests, recovers, and returns ready to resume his work, whenever that may be.
