Rangers have emphatically decided to appeal against Ryan Jack’s red card at Aberdeen on Sunday, according to a report.
Sky Sports claims that the Light Blues will look to have the 25-year-old’s suspension rescinded for his heavy challenge on Aberdeen striker Stevie May in the second-half at Pittodrie.
Jack’s dismissal at the weekend was the fourth time this season he has been handed his marching orders and in two of the previous three occasions, Rangers have managed to mount successful appeals.
The Scotland international was making his first appearance at Pittodrie for Rangers since leaving the Dons in the summer and was met with boos every time he touched the ball.
It appeared that emotions may have ran a bit too high with the midfielder though in the second half when he forced May out of the action by planting his studs into the Aberdeen player’s shin.
Jack did win the ball, but the seriousness of the contact that followed was surely what made Willie Collum into deciding to brandish the red card.
Up until his dismissal Jack was perhaps one of the better players in blue.
His absence didn’t have any impact on the result though as the Gers managed to hold on to a 2-1 win and leapfrog Derek McInnes’ side in the Premiership standings.
