A key claim has been made over Rangers central midfielder Ryan Jack, regarding his latest injury…
What’s the latest?
Glasgow Times senior writer Chris Jack has claimed that it could be a while before the Gers have him back in action due to what he will need to go through before being back to 100%.
The reliable journalist told GIVEMESPORT: “He’s had this latest setback and it seems a bit of a long road.
“Another couple of weeks before he’s back in the fold, another couple of weeks to get him back up to speed and then another couple of weeks for him to establish himself in the team again. So, it’s looking like a frustrating start to the year for Ryan.”
Rangers fans will surely be fuming with this update as it could now be a number of weeks before Jack is a viable first-team option for Gio van Bronckhorst to call upon as he recovers from injury.
His previous form in the Premiership shows that he has the quality to make a big impact at this level and that is why fans will be wanting to see him back as soon as possible. Last season, he averaged an impressive SofaScore rating of 7.14 in 19 appearances, scoring two goals and providing one assist, which shows that he can perform consistently in the league.
Joe Aribo (7.20) is the only Rangers midfielder who has averaged a higher rating this term for the club in the Premiership. This suggests that Jack, if he can recapture his form from the 2020/21 campaign, could be one of the side’s top performers when he returns from injury.
Former Ibrox boss Steven Gerrard previously lauded the midfield gem, saying: “Ryan is an example for the rest of the squad because he never drops his standards, whether it’s a training session or a game.
“He knits everything together, he drives the team on, he demands from everyone else around him.”
This highlights why fans will be fuming with this latest claim on Jack. It appears as though they will need to wait a considerable chunk of time before he is back in all of his glory, which is a shame for the club – as they miss out on his talents – and the player – as he will surely be left frustrated sitting in the injury room.
