Rangers supporters have been relatively quiet in recent times after seeing their side lose their place at the summit of the Scottish Premiership on Wednesday night.
Steven Gerrard’s men went into their encounter with Hibernian at Easter Road off the back of beating Hamilton 1-0 on Sunday to advance to top spot in the table ahead of their clash with Neil Lennon’s side on Wednesday. Yet the Gers could only muster a 0-0 draw to relinquish first place in the division, with Celtic’s 3-0 success over Motherwell at Parkhead moving Brendan Rodgers’ team a point clear at the summit, and with a game in hand on their Old Firm rivals.
As such, there have been many quiet Rangers fans up and down the country in recent times, although several are likely to be thrilled by a recent announcement on the club’s official website that Ryan Jack has signed a new deal with the Scottish heavyweights.
The 26-year-old made the move to Ibrox back in 2017 after beginning his senior career at fellow Scottish Premiership outfit Aberdeen, and he has gone about trying to become a Light Blues regular having only mustered 21 appearances in all competitions last term.
And he is well on his way to becoming a Rangers lynchpin having already appeared 23 times under new boss Gerrard this season, with his fine efforts in the midfield earning the Scotland international a new contract at the club, which will take him through until the summer of 2021.
Unsurprisingly, news of an agreement with Jack has stimulated quite a reaction from Rangers supporters on Twitter, with many absolutely thrilled with the news, while plenty of others called for Gerrard to make the bold decision to make the 26-year-old captain in the near future…
