Ryan Jack has hailed the strengthening of Rangers’ first-team squad ahead of next season, speaking to the club’s official website.
Joe Aribo became the club’s seventh signing of the summer so far on Thursday, adding even more competition to a packed midfield area at Ibrox.
Jack then may have reason to be concerned about his future in Steven Gerrard’s starting eleven, but he is in fact delighted by the way the squad has been strengthened.
Watch the best fails from the world of indoor football in the video below…
“I am optimistic ahead of the new season, we have a great squad of boys and we have kept the core of the team from last season so far, hopefully that continues.
“I think we have added real quality and there could be a couple more to come.
“So I think, no disrespect to last season, but I think the squad we are building is getting stronger and stronger, hopefully come the start of this season that shows.”
The Gers missed out on trophies again last season but after a year of progress under Gerrard, there is clearly optimism within the Ibrox camp that they can launch a sustained assault on treble champions Celtic next season.
With the club’s transfer business not likely to be over quite yet, there could be more new faces added to the squad too.
Rangers fans have reacted well to Jack’s comments, taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on Friday…
There’s no disrespect there. There’s only honesty.

Saying that the team is improving is not disrespectful.
