Rangers manager Graeme Murty has confirmed that Ryan Jack won’t kick a ball again this season after undergoing surgery on a knee injury – but the midfielder’s absence isn’t that big of a blow for the Gers.
While it is sad to see any player ruled out for so long, Murty’s side are starting to look like a slick outfit and it’s difficult at the minute to see where Jack fits in to the starting XI.
When the 25-year-old returns next season he should be like a new signing for the Gers and, with Sean Goss likely to return to QPR, there’s a bit more of a natural gap for him to fill when he’s fit.
Jack has actually impressed this season before being injured against Motherwell but with a lengthy injury list starting to ease a bit with the likes of Graham Dorrans and Jordan Rossiter nearing returns – and Ross McCrorie possibly being back before too long – central midfield is a pretty packed area in the Gers squad right now.
The former Aberdeen captain still has a huge role to play at Ibrox in the future but right now, his absence isn’t being felt in the same way it was even a month or two ago.
