Graeme Murty: Rangers to make decision over Pittodrie flashpoint
Interim Rangers boss Graeme Murty has revealed the Ibrox club will sit down and look again at Ryan Jack’s red card in the 2-1 win over Aberdeen before deciding whether or not to appeal the decision.
Jack was sent off midway through the second-half at Pittodrie after following through on a 50/50 challenge with Aberdeen’s Stevie May.
Referee Willie Collum showed the Ibrox mainstay a straight-red as a result of the second-half flashpoint as the former Aberdeen captain was sent off for the fourth time this season.
The Gers have already successfully appealed two of Jack’s red cards so far this season and Murty admitted the Gers will look at it again before deciding their next step.
“I feel for Ryan,” Murty said, as quoted by The Scotsman.
“I know he’s gutted.
“We’ll have a look at it again and we’ll decide what to do as a football club but I thought he handled the occasion [against his former club] remarkably well up to that point.
“He showed a degree of composure I’m not sure I would have been capable of in his shoes.”
Until the red card, Jack had been arguably the best player on the pitch as he reveled in his return to his old stomping ground.
The 25-year-old spent 13 years with the Dons before switching Pittodrie for Ibrox over the summer and Aberdeen fans booed Jack’s every touch of the ball.
Since moving to the Gers, Jack has made 19 appearances but is still to score his first goal for the club.
Jack has also been dismissed against Hibs, Kilmarnock and Hamilton this season with the red cards against Hibs and Kilmarnock later rescinded by the Scottish FA.
