Rangers have been issued a major Ibrox injury relief over Glasgow giants midfielder Ryan Jack after their quarter-final win last Sunday.
Gio van Bronckhorst has revealed that the Scotland international is fine and has not suffered any long-term issues following the match.
Connor Goldson, James Tavernier and Fashion Sakala all got themselves on the scoresheet as the Gers romped their way through to the last four of the competition.
The 30-year-old appeared to be in discomfort as he was taken off the pitch in the second half and the Dutch head coach has allayed any fears over his fitness.
The Scottish Sun quotes him as saying: “Ryan Jack is okay, too.”
Van Bronckhorst will surely be buzzing with this as Jack has been an impressive performer for him since the turn of the year.
He has battled back from injury issues to make himself a key player for the Dutch head coach and his availability is a boost for the Gers, whilst it is also a relief after the way he came off against Dundee FC at the weekend.
In the Premiership this season, he has averaged a SofaScore rating of 6.93. The Scot has completed 90% of his attempted passes and made 0.9 key passes per game despite only starting three of his seven appearances as he has emerged as a regular option since January after dealing with his injury problems throughout 2021.
Meanwhile, in Europe, he has averaged a SofaScore rating of 6.90 – playing twice against Borussia Dortmund and in the first leg against Red Star Belgrade. He has averaged an impressive 4.7 tackles and interceptions per game, which shows the immense work he has put in off the ball in Europe to ensure that the Gers have a solid base upon which to build from in their matches.
These statistics across both competitions show that he has made himself a key player for van Bronckhorst with his recent form. This is why the head coach will be buzzing that he did not sustain a serious injury after coming off with a knock against Dundee FC on Sunday.
Hopefully, Jack will remain fit throughout the rest of the campaign and continue to deliver top-quality performances to help the Gers compete on all fronts. They are still in with a chance of winning the treble and having an excellent player like Jack available can only be a big boost to the side’s chances.
