Murty confirms significant injury blow for Rangers 25-year-old
Rangers manager Graeme Murty has revealed his sadness at the confirmation that midfielder Ryan Jack has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a significant injury.
The summer signing from Aberdeen had a knee operation recently and Murty disclosed that he wouldn’t be kicking a ball again until next season at the earliest.
“It’s a blow for us as he’d been doing really well. It’s a blow for him” the Englishman said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“I think you saw from his journey to playing for Rangers that he was desperate to come to us, desperate to be on this stage, desperate to wear the shirt.
“Now he’s had a significant setback.
“What we have to make sure is that when he does come back in the squad, he comes into a vibrant, positive enthusiastic area that enhances his game and really takes his game to the next level as we try to do with all our players.”
The 25-year-old, who suffered the injury in a match against Motherwell in December, had been one of the Gers best players this season before his injury struck.
Now the player will have to watch from the sidelines as the Light Blues stage an unlikely tilt at the title.
Murty’s side temporarily cut the gap at the top of the table to league leaders Celtic to six points, following a 2-0 win over Hearts at Ibrox on Saturday.
The Gers dominated the game, and were well-worthy of the win given to them by goals from Jamie Murphy and Russell Martin.
Light Blues fans will be watching the events that unfold on Sunday at Pittodrie in the match between Aberdeen and Celtic with interest.
The Gers will be looking to maintain their recent run of good form on Tuesday night, when they face a trip to Perth to take on St Johnstone.
