A major update has emerged regarding the current injury situations of Rangers duo Ryan Kent and Ryan Jack.
Manager Steven Gerrard has revealed that they are both set to return to action before the international break in two weeks’ time, although they will be watching on from the stands for the clash with Motherwell on Sunday.
The former Liverpool captain has also confirmed that Borna Barisic will be absent as he nurses a minor knock and will be back in contention against Brondby on Thursday.
Gerrard told the Daily Record: “Motherwell is too close for both Ryan Jack and Kent but will both likely be with us before the international break. Borna is also missing with a small injury but will return for the European match next week.
“Missing a player of Ryan Kent’s quality is always going to have an impact because of his high quality. He is not too far away and has worked extremely hard to return.”
Rangers fans will surely be left feeling delighted by this update from Gerrard as it indicates that both Kent and Jack will make an appearance in one of the two games after Sunday’s clash with Motherwell, with matches against Brondby and Ross County to come prior to the next round of internationals.
Kent has been out of action since 16 September and Jack has not made a single appearance since February. This means that Gers fans have not been able to enjoy their talents for a fair chunk of time, particularly in the latter’s case, and they could be buzzing to see them back out on the pitch.
Both players have shown their class for the Gers in previous seasons and the Ibrox faithful will surely be delighted by the prospect of having them both back on the pitch.
Former Liverpool winger Kent has proven his quality at Premiership level. Last season, he produced an impressive 10 goals and nine assists in the division as Rangers won the title, averaging an eye-catching SofaScore rating of 7.23 across 37 appearances.
Meanwhile, Jack averaged a score of 7.14 in 19 league games prior to his injury last term. He completed 90% of his passes from central midfield and made 2.2 tackles and interceptions per game whilst winning 56% of his individual duels over the course of the campaign.
At at time when the Gers’ form has been unconvincing, having the duo back soon will come as a huge fillip to Gerrard.
