Rangers manager Walter Smith has confirmed that Pedro Mendes will be out of action for up to two months.
The midfielder was forced out of Tuesday night's Champions League defeat to Unirea Urziceni after suffering a knock to his knee.
The Portuguese international underwent scans on Wednesday which have revealed he now faces a lengthy lay-off.
Smith said the vital player will be sidelined for at least six weeks and could possibly be out for two months.
