Report: Rangers handed serious injury blow as first team regular set for surgery
Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack looks set to sit out the rest of the season as he gets set for surgery on a knee injury suffered last month, according to a report.
The Daily Record claim on their website that the 25-year-old has failed to recover from the blow picked up in the 2-0 win over Motherwell in December, and having missed the 0-0 draw with fierce rivals Celtic the club now fear his campaign is over with surgery required to fix the damage.
It is said that the medical staff at Ibrox suspect the surgery will keep the one-cap Scotland international out of action until at least the end of the season in what would be a serious blow to the club, although the report claims there is the possibility he may recover quicker than anticipated.
Jack, a summer arrival from Aberdeen after his contract expired with the Dons, has been a regular in the Light Blues’ midfield this season, with 21 appearances and two assists to his name across all competitions.
However he has also found himself sent off four times by referees, two of which were rescinded, meaning he has sat out four games already, including three of the club’s last five outings.
The Gers’ next match sees them take on Jack’s former side Aberdeen on Wednesday, with Graeme Murty’s men knowing that victory would see them leapfrog their league rivals into second as a result of their superior goal difference.
