Pundit calls for Rangers action after Ryan Jack apology
Frank McAvennie has called for Ryan Jack to start more game for Rangers to help him get back to full fitness.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Celtic striker said Giovanni van Bronckhorst “has to change something” in the Gers lineup.
Van Bronckhorst’s side were beaten 4-0 by Ajax in their opening Champions League game on Wednesday (7 September).
Jack, 30, was on the bench for the European clash and was subbed on for the second half of the defeat.
He has started just two Scottish Premiership fixtures for the Bears this season.
As quoted by Football Scotland (7 September), Jack apologised to the fans for the team’s recent performances.

The midfielder added that the Ibrox club will “stick together” in light of the disappointing results.
McAvennie suggested Jack could come back into the side to get some game time.
“Gio has to change something,” he told Football Insider.
“It does not matter who you are or how good you are, when you get eight goals shipped by you, the only thing you can do is hope the midfield will help the defence out.
“Jack’s coming back and you can tell he’s lacking match fitness. It doesn’t matter how hard you train, you’re never going to get match fitness unless you play games. Jack needs a few games.“
On Sunday (11 September), the club confirmed their game against Napoli will be played on Wednesday (14 September), a day later than originally planned.
Rangers are currently bottom of Group A following the 4-0 defeat to Ajax.
