AMSTERDAM — Rangers midfielder Alejandro Bedoya departed a weekend victory early with an ankle complaint, but the club says it's not severe enough to keep him out of any further action.

The US international was lively for 52 minutes playing behind the striker at Inverness, where Rangers won 2-1 on a late strike from Kyle Lafferty, before being pulled as a precaution.

"He had a minor knock on Saturday, but it was nothing serious," a club spokeswoman told MLSsoccer.com on Monday. "It was his ankle. He isn't missing training."

Bedoya has made nine appearances for the Scottish champions since arriving in August from Swedish side Örebro, including four starts. Thus far, first-place Rangers are unbeaten in three league games with the 24-year-old American in the lineup.
