Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson says Antonio Valencia could be ruled out for the rest of the season after sustaining a serious ankle injury in the Champions League draw with Rangers.

The Ecuador winger was taken to hospital after being carried off on a stretcher following a seemingly innocuous challenge with Rangers defender Kirk Broadfoot in the 58th minute of the 0-0 draw at Old Trafford.

Ferguson says on Tuesday "it is a dislocation or a fracture and he gets operated on tomorrow morning. When you saw the Rangers player waving, you knew it was a bad one."

Video replays showed Valencia's foot pointing in the wrong direction.
