Rangers manager Walter Smith faces an anxious wait to discover whether captain Barry Ferguson will be fit for Wednesday´s Champions League opener against Stuttgart at Ibrox.

The midfielder aggravated a knee ligament injury, which he had been carrying for several weeks, in training on Monday and now faces a late fitness test.

"Barry will get treatment on Tuesday and there will have to be a fitness test on Wednesday before we know if he will be fit or not," said Smith.
