Glasgow Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack requires an operation to sort out a calf injury that has troubled him for the past two seasons, meaning he will not take part in the European Championships with Scotland as a result.
Jack out of Euros
Jack played a big role in helping the Tartan Army reach this summer’s showpiece, starting both the play-off semi-final against Israel, as well as the final versus Serbia.
Now, though, it has been revealed he needs surgery on his calf, and will therefore not be fit enough for Steve Clarke’s squad.
Blow for Scotland, boost for Gers
£2.7m-valued Jack (Transfermarkt) will no doubt be gutted. Participating in a European Championships, especially for a country so seldom used to playing at that level, may have been one of the pinnacles of Jack’s career. He will now have to do all he can to help the national side reach an international tournament again in the future.
Can Gerrard rely on Ryan Jack?
However, Scotland’s loss is Rangers’ gain. Jack has played just 24 times in all competitions this campaign as he has struggled with injury (Transfermarkt). Taking the summer off to try and recover permanently from this issue may be fantastic news for Steven Gerrard and the 55-time Scottish champions in the long run.
