There’s dramatic transfer news at Rangers this morning. The Scottish Sun are reporting that Pedro Caixinha is lining up a stunning move for Aberdeen’s Ryan Jack.
What better way to make sure you finish above a rival club next season than signing up their leader and captain? The 25 year old’s deal runs out at Pittodrie this summer and that opens the door for a switch to Ibrox say the paper.
Talks could even begin before the season finishes as Rangers try to claw their way back into second place in the league.
Aberdeen have been trying to tie down Jack to a new deal for a while and losing him would be a significant blow to their ambitions next season. He isn’t the flashiest of players, but plays a vital role in the heart of their midfield, bringing fight and determination to the middle of the park.
After almost 250 appearances for the Dons, it appears his time at Pittodrie may be coming to an end.
Rangers fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…
Whilst I agree signing Ryan Jack is totally uninspiring he's
B) Better than what he have.
C) A captain & leader which we lack.

Would sign Ryan Jack purely for the reaction of Aberdeen fans.

I've said for years I'd love Ryan Jack at us one day, has been good enough previously to be linked with clubs such as Everton and Roma

Don't know loads about Ryan Jack, but the sheep would be beelin', more so when he gets a Scotland call up straight after signing…

Ryan Jack would be a bit of a strange one. Looked okay, but nothing special whenever I've seen him – worst of their 3 CMs, if anything.

Ryan Jack to Rangers? Been a long time coming. I have rated the lad for a long time, could be a top player for us.
