Cantwell crocked as Beale reveals damage caused by brush with Maeda

Todd Cantwell is facing upto four weeks out of action after bumping into Daizen Maeda.

The former Norwich starlet was sent tumbling and squealing for a penalty when he clashed with the winger late on in the Glasgow Derby.

It was yet another big match failure for Cantwell, coming just days after a Champions League humiliation from PSV Eindhoven.

Micky Beale is fighting to hold onto his job but will be without Cantwell for a crucial period knowing that one more defeat will see the Ibrox board come under incredible pressure to get rid of the boss.

Listening in to today’s media conference Football Scotland reported Beale saying:

The strongest team will play the next game, Tom Lawrence is now fully fit, [Kemar] Roofe is in a really good place. Unfortunately, Todd Cantwell will miss the next three or four games, and Dowell will also miss out.

Todd has an issue with his knee in a challenge towards the end of the game. He should be returning in three or four weeks. Kieran is now back jogging and should be three or four weeks away also.

It was unclear whether Cantwell will be out for three or four matches or weeks, at 12 minutes 10 seconds he says four weeks from the time of the injury. Beale brought forward his media conference till 9am to get a mild grilling from selected media partners.

Odin Thiago Holm finished the match with a good solid challenge on Todders.

The former QPR boss looked nervous and fidgety throughout as he tried to deflect away from the outpouring of anger that has followed the defeats to PSV Eindhoven.

Bigging up having the best defensive record in the SPFL isn’t going to go down well with fans that watched their side lose 1-0 to Kilmarnock and Celtic.

Small margins got a few mentions while Beale deflected criticism away from himself towards the players and directors, claiming at one point that he was involved in every decision but that every decision wasn’t his decision.

That sort of claim won’t do him any favours in the boardroom where they could well be looking through the small print in his contract.
