Stuart Amos of the Wimbledon Guardian is reporting that former Rangers star Lewis Macleod is finally poised to begin training again with Brentford FC.  The 21-year old, who was signed by former Brentford boss Mark Warburton, has yet to make an appearance with his new team after featuring 52 times for Rangers.

Injuries have completely derailed Macleod’s progress but the news may finally be turning for the better.

Neil Greig, Brentford’s head of medical, said – “Lewis and our medical team have endured a very frustrating time since Lewis arrived at the club in January.  A particularly complex hamstring problem that has limited the explosive power that Lewis has been able to produce, has made it impossible for him to perform to his maximum in team training.”

“With that in mind, Lewis spent the summer working with a specialist strength and conditioning coach, in order to address the deficits identified.  He is now working well outside with the medical team, and producing far more promising results than at any other time to date.”

“While Lewis is not yet out of the woods, there is now genuine belief he will be able to join his team-mates for training during September.”  If that happens, the expected timetable for his availability to play would be sometime in October.

Brentford’s midfield has been decimated by injuries of late, with Andreas Bjelland & Jota both out with long term inuries.  Bjelland, Brentford’s recent record transfer is out for the season.
