Danilo in Rangers recovery update as striker shares snap from hospital bed and draws inspiration from his faith
Sidelined Danilo has offered an update to Rangers fans as he recovers from his quick-fire surgery on the compound fracture suffered against St Johnstone.
The 24-year-old scored the opening goal in the 2-0 Scottish Premiership win over the Perth Saints before instantly suffering the after effects of an accidental head collision with defender Liam Gordon. The striker was left in agony before the former Feyenoord and Ajax man was rushed straight to hospital to undergo surgery and start his road to recovery.
The Brazilian has promised the Rangers support he will strive to return as quickly as possible after an outpouring of support following the gruesome injury - but in his latest update he remains in hospital after the horror knock at McDiarmid Park. The forward took to his social media to share an update from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Glasgow - where he currently receiving care in the Neurosurgical department.
Sharing an image to his Instagram story, Danilo shared a motivational passage from the Bible, quoting Psalm 121 'A song of Ascents' along with a snap of his view of Glasgow from his hospital bed as he takes inspiration from his faith. With the forward facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines Michael Beale admitted he was gutted for the player at full-time on Saturday.
Quoting Psalm 121
He said: “It is a really disappointing moment for the team. Danilo had had a couple of things going on, he took a few weeks to get fit, then he scores."
