The Scotland national team have confirmed Glasgow Rangers’ Ryan Jack has had to pull out of the squad due to injury.
It was a surprise to see the midfielder called up by Steve Clarke in the first place considering he has not played for the Gers since February 21st (Transfermarkt).
Now, though, it is clear he is no position to play for his country or his club right now, and he has therefore withdrawn from international duty on this occasion.
Blow for Scotland and Rangers
Clarke will no doubt be disappointed to lose the £2.7m-valued former Aberdeen man (Transfermarkt). In his 10 caps, the Tartan Army have prevailed six times, drawn once and lost on three occasions, and they have been defeated just once with him in the starting line-up in the last seven fixtures.
Are you happy with this news?
Steven Gerrard, too, will be far from happy with this news. While the 29-year-old has made 24 appearances in all competitions this campaign for the 55-time Scottish champions, he has already suffered knee and calf issues that have kept him out for sustained periods. With the Premiership title now wrapped up, Gerrard may well have been hoping to give some playing time to a man he called “fantastic” earlier this term (via The Glasgow Times), but that looks like it may no longer be possible.
In other news, this man has been tipped to be Rangers’ Player of the Year.
