As reported by The Daily Record, Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack is at risk of missing the rest of the season with the player set to undergo knee surgery after picking an injury in last month’s clash with Motherwell.
The Light Blues regular was on the receiving end of a tackle from Cedric Kipre on 27th December and hasn’t featured in competitive or friendly action since. He now looks set to be out for longer than first anticipated.
Jack moved to Ibrox last summer and has so far made 21 appearances this season, becoming one of the side’s most consistent performers in the middle of the park.
With a long-term injury also sustained by Graham Dorrans, it leaves manager Graeme Murty’s options limited in the second half of the season.
Supporters are gutted to hear he won’t be available for the foreseeable future, with some also criticising the Rangers medical staff for not realising the severity of his injury sooner.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Gutted that Ryan Jack isn’t playing tonight, he bossed that last two games vs the sheep.

Medical team needs looked at. Handled Rossiter, Dorrans & Jack horribly this season.

He's had nothing but bad luck since signing, such a shame. Hope he comes back asap and as strong as he was before.
Fingers cross on Docherty – he's needed in midfield.

Get fit soon, Jack will be devastated if he missed rest of season. Really disappointing news.

Bad news but what I don’t understand is why he went to Florida. Murty said that had hoped to give him and McCrorie game time then it turns out he has a season ending injury? Doesn’t add up- surely our medics ain’t that bad?

Ryan Jack out for the rest of the season. Massive loss, imagine the shoe was on the other foot with regards to the tackle that put him there 🤔😒
