Cook Steps Up Rehab

Lee Cook has stepped up his long-awaited recovery from a series of knee injuries.

The Rangers winger hasn't featured since the dour home draw against Plymouth Argyle at the back end of last season.

He returned from his summer holiday and discovered that key-hole surgery would be required on a troublesome knee injury that has dogged his career in recent years.

He has since stepped up his rehabilitation in recent weeks and is now able to run without pain, and for this simplest of tasks he is very thankful.

Speaking to the Ealing Gazette, Cook told of his delight at the latest development in his recovery process.

'I've imagined what it's like to have no pain - and some nights it's been so real,' he said.

'I was surprised when I woke up in bed and it still hurt.

'But it has really happened - and you can imagine how I feel not to have pain.'

Manager Jim Magilton admitted that Cook would have to be eased back in, and in consultation with physio Paul Hunter they will manage his injury in stages.

Cook featured regularly last season, but it was apparent that his previous injury was causing him problems at times, with his crossing in particular suffering as a result.

before he left for fulham, he was a player I really liked and thought he was a natural Prem player, would be nice to see him reach his potential. I would see him and Routledge being devestaing as a long term pairing, That is assuming you lose Adel Taarabt at some point.

Cook will play a big role come the end of the season I hope - if we can find or develop that hungry striker his crossing could prove essential. In my opinion Oxford he is a very good player, who without the injuries would be playing Premier League football now. Last season he struggled on with a bad injury, his crossing was poor as a result because he couldn't put a lot of weight on his standing leg. Now hopefully he'll return better than ever and hungry for success.
