Former Glasgow Rangers manager Alex McLeish is worried after the latest injury update on midfielder Ryan Jack.
McLeish worried about Jack
Speaking to Ibrox News, McLeish has shared his worry. He said:
“It’s never good to be behind in pre-season.
“We’ve all got our different traits and levels of fitness, and he’s been a terrific player. You see the contribution he has made for Rangers for Scotland.
“It’s such a pity. He’s seeing a specialist and that will be for one particular injury, and he will have certain expertise. When you hear those words, you fear the worst.
“He’s in the best hands.”
Injuries have been a persistent problem for Jack ever since he moved to Ibrox from Aberdeen in 2017. So far, the most Premiership games he has managed in a single campaign is 30 – in every other campaign, he has failed to break the 20-match barrier (Transfermarkt).
Can Gerrard rely on Ryan Jack?
While he has been an important player when he has managed to get on to the field, it is impossible for Gerrard and the Gers to rely on a player who will likely spend a considerable part of the season on the sidelines. Unfortunately, at his age it is unlikely to be a problem that will be solved, either. The 55-time Scottish champions do at least have plenty of other options in the middle of the park.
In other news, many Rangers fans are delighted by this Old Firm news.
