Rangers: Van Bronckhorst provides update on Kemar Roofe and Ryan Jack

A major update has emerged on Rangers duo Kemar Roofe and Ryan Jack regarding their injury situations…

What’s the latest?

Gers boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst has revealed, in his pre-Aberdeen press conference, when the pair will be returning from their respective knocks.

He told the club’s Twitter channel: “Aribo will miss out on International duty. Helander started training but the game will be too early for him. Arfield and Davis will also both miss out with injury. Roofe and Jack will both start training with the team this week.”

Is this a major boost for Rangers?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Fans will be buzzing

Rangers fans will surely be buzzing with this news, as both players are capable of being key figures for Van Bronckhorst’s side.

Jack has been plagued by injuries this season but previously proved himself to be a top player at Premiership level under Steven Gerrard. Last season, he averaged an excellent SofaScore rating of 7.14 as he played 19 matches in the league.

He won 56% of his duels and completed 90% of his passes as he produced consistently dominant performances in the middle of the park. This suggests that he could be a valuable player for the Gers if he is able to return to full fitness and be a regular option in midfield, so this news could be a big boost for the club, and fans could enjoy seeing him back after only two appearances in the league this term.

How well do you know Morelos? First... who did he score his 100th goal against?

Roofe, on the other hand, has proven his class this season and last. In the current Premiership campaign, he has scored six goals in six starts whilst also creating 0.8 chances per game. This is after he found the back of the net 14 times in 18 starts in 2020/21 as Rangers won the title, averaging an impressive SofaScore rating of 7.12, showing that his overall performances were also strong.

The former Leeds marksman is a natural goalscorer and has shown that he can find the net on a consistent basis at this level, which is why his return could be a major boost to the side in the coming weeks. Supporters will be delighted to see him back in action and competing for a spot in the starting XI or coming off the bench, as he can provide moments of quality in front of goal to get fans off their seats and celebrating.

AND in other news, Van Bronckhorst could find Rangers their next Patterson in machine who’s tipped for a “big career”…
