Richard Foster: Rangers 25-year-old ace is underrated

By Derek Smithson

St Johnstone defender Richard Foster has described Rangers signing Ryan Jack as “underrated” following his recent arrival from Aberdeen.

Foster, who has previously played at both Ibrox and Pittodrie, has highlighted the qualities of the Gers signing.

Jack completed his move to Rangers on a free transfer and signed a three-year deal with the club, ending his nine-year association with Aberdeen in the process.

The 25-year-old central midfielder made 250 senior appearances for the Dons and even captained the side during recent seasons.

He joined experienced defender Bruno Alves in arriving at Ibrox as Gers manager Pedro Caixinha kickstarts his summer overhaul.

Foster previously played alongside Jack at Aberdeen and he believes that he will be a good fit at Rangers.

“He’s very much underrated,” Foster told BBC Sport. “He loves tackling, he loves winning the ball.

“He’s a good signing for Rangers. He was asked to do the defensive role in the Aberdeen team, which I think he did really well, but I think he does have more quality on the ball when needed.”

Caixinha will be hoping that Jack can help bolster his midfield next season and he should be able to provide cover in front of the defence.

The Scotsman is renowned as a combative midfielder and is also confident in possession.

He will be hoping to prove himself for the Gers and will have a point to prove after Aberdeen fans were extremely angry with his mover to their league rivals.
