Medical by Wednesday: Rangers put finishing touches to top-flight captain signing - report

By Matt Bullin

Aberdeen captain Ryan Jack is set to undergo a medical at Rangers ahead of a potential move, according to a report.

The Sunday Post claims the 25-year-old’s medical will take place within the next 72 hours as Pedro Caixinha closes in on his first major signing.

This comes after HITC claimed the Gers were set to sign Jack on a free after his contract expires at Aberdeen this summer.

Everything is in place for the move to take place, barring nothing goes wrong with his medical, and Jack has already told Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes that he will leave.

Jack has been a mainstay in the heart of the Dons midfield this term and has made 37 appearances in all competitions.

The defensive midfielder will face a late fitness test to see if he is able to play in Aberdeen’s upcoming Scottish Cup final against Celtic.

Football Insider verdict

This deal looks all set to take place. As long as no recurring injuries or problems show up during his medical, Jack looks set to be a Rangers player for next season. This will be a fine signing for Caixinha, a player who knows the league, has been the captain of one of Rangers’ rivals and who is just 25. There is plenty of time for Jack to grow and develop, but he is also good enough to walk straight into Caixinha’s starting XI. It is a long road for Rangers to overhaul Celtic, but this deal can be regarded as a significant initial step in that process.

In other Rangers transfer news, Caixinha has claimed this injury-prone ace can fire the Glasgow giants to the top next season.
