An update has been issued on the fitness of Rangers prospect Zak Lovelace.

The attacker lasted just 18 minutes on the park today as Rangers B were defeated 3-2 by Royal Antwerp's Under-21s. 

The game, which took place in Belgium, was a friendly encounter between the teams, with the visitors throwing away a two-goal advantage.

Lovelace has recently stepped up his injury recovery after the 18-year-old was ruled out of action for the best part of six months. 

The ex-Millwall academy product suffered a serious injury to his left hamstring during a 3-0 victory over St Mirren back in early October, with Seven Davis in interim charge of the club. 

Lovelace made his comeback in a B-team game against Carlisle two weeks ago. 

And as he continued to get more vital minutes in a bid to get back involved in the first team setup at Rangers, he featured once again for the B team today. 

Things didn't go to plan though, as he went to ground requiring treatment with just 18 minutes on the clock. He was subsequently substituted by David McCallum. 

However, we understand this was a precautionary measure due to some tightness on his hamstring. 

It's not yet known if a setback in his recovery was sustained.

Lovelace has yet to have the chance to impress Philippe Clement, with the player having spent the majority of his tenure on the sidelines.

But the Belgian is aware that he has a bright future. He said: "We have Zak Lovelace also who was out injured.

"I've not seen him live with me but I saw him before and he is somebody with a bright future so you can have maybe six or seven strikers but you cannot play them all."
