Ibrox legend Alex McLeish has predicted that Glasgow Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack may not be fully fit until the start of the 2021/22 campaign.
McLeish makes worrying Jack claim
The 29-year-old has struggled with injuries throughout the campaign. He was ruled out of nine Premiership matches earlier this season with a knee issue, and he has missed the last three with a calf problem (Transfermarkt).
Speaking to Ibrox News, McLeish has suggested that Jack may not be ready before the next campaign. He said:
“It seems to be an ongoing saga for Ryan over this season.
“In terms of injuries and one particular problem, maybe it is calf or hamstring. He is certainly a player who has progressed under Steven Gerrard.
“As have all the midfielders, I’m not saying they miss Ryan, in certain games they do, but they do have tremendous cover.
“For Ryan’s peace of mind, I think it will be great if he could clear up all of these ongoing injury issues, and maybe that can happen for next season.”
Blow for Gerrard
While Jack has been in and out of the treatment term this season, he has still been an important player for the 55-time Scottish champions. He has played 24 games in all competitions and, although it may just be a coincidence, both of the Gers’ losses this season have been without the 29-year-old in the side.
Will Jack play again this season?
Unfortunately, this is not the first time he has struggled with injury. As McLeish says, it is a recurring theme with Jack ever since he made the move to Ibrox from Aberdeen. However, when he is fit, he is a force to be reckoned with – Gerrard will be hoping he can get back to his best before July, at least.
