Rangers expect to be without Francisco Sandaza for the rest of the year following confirmation he has suffered a broken cheekbone.

The striker was forced out of Wednesday night's Scottish Communities League Cup victory over Motherwell after a clash of heads with Shaun Hutchinson and was taken from Ibrox to hospital for an X-ray.

The Spaniard faces a minimum of eight weeks on the sidelines, although the Glasgow giants fear he will be out of action for the remainder of 2012.
