Rangers have turned to cryotherapy in a bid to give themselves every chance of seeing off Celtic in the Scottish Premiership title race.
Steven Gerrard’s team sit seven points behind Neil Lennon’s side but do have a game in hand.
Rangers also still need to face Celtic in the Old Firm at Ibrox on March 15.
With hopes of usurping their great rivals still alive, Rangers have got creative.
The club has chosen CryoAction as its official cryotherapy supplier, with the hope it will deliver increased gains in performance and speed up injury recovery times.
Rangers have a busy schedule coming up with games in the Scottish Premiership, the Scottish Cup and the Europa League to come this month alone.
Gerrard cannot afford to lose any of his key players in the second half of the season.
And in an effort to give the squad every chance of avoiding injuries as well as aiding recoveries, a mega cryotherapy chamber has been installed at the Hummel Training Centre.
The state-of-the-art, extreme-cold, whole-body, cryotherapy chamber fits six people at a time.
It can reach sub-zero temperatures of -160 degrees.
A number of world-class sportsmen and women use the treatment, as do some Premier League clubs.
Further perks of the treatment also include reducing inflammation, improving sleep, increasing energy levels and helping with intense pain from injuries.
Head of performance at Rangers, Jordan Milsom, said: “As a club, we felt CryoAction was the leading company in the industry and a perfect partner to enhance the recovery and performance services provided to our players.
“This squad has to deal with a game every three-four days, and the physical and mental strain associated with this is high.
“It is our job to help the players return to their physical and mental baseline as quickly as possible – in preparation for the next game – and CryoAction helps facilitate this process.
“Since its installation, over the past six months, we have seen subjective and objective benefits of this modality and it has become firmly ingrained in the players daily routine.”
Striker Jermain Defoe, 37, was among those to try out the chamber.
And the team will be hoping to feel the full effects over the coming weeks and months.
Rangers came from behind to beat Hibernian 2-1 at Ibrox last night in the Scottish Premiership.
And up next for Gerrard’s men is a trip to Hamilton in the fifth round of the Scottish Cup on Saturday (12.30pm).
Two more league games follow against Kilmarnock and Livingston next week before Rangers return to European action on Thursday 20 (8pm) at home to Portuguese side Braga in their Europa League round of 32 first leg.
