Ahead of the summer transfer window, there’s been plenty of talk surrounding new Rangers contracts but on Ryan Jack things have been suspiciously quiet.
Rangers have already doled out new deals to Scott Arfield, Steven Davis and Connor Goldson as they keep the experienced heads around heading into next season.
Much of the talk has also been regarding the futures of key players like Joe Aribo, Alfredo Morelos and Filip Helander, who are entering the final year of their deals.
But another player who falls into this category is influential midfielder Ryan Jack, and often the player has been excluded from this conversation.
Whether fans are more relaxed about the player’s situation going into the final year of his deal, or because of Jack’s injury issues, the conversation surrounding a new deal has been suspiciously quiet. Until now.
Rangers contract for Ryan Jack “likely a priority” at Ibrox
According to the Daily Record, the situation with Ryan Jack’s contract is “likely a priority” at Ibrox such is the player’s influence.
They suggest that despite the injury problems there is hunger to get the Scotland international tied down on a new deal.
Ryan Jack missed the bulk of the 20/21 season with a troublesome thigh problem and niggles persisted across the last campaign.
But as the season reached a crescendo the midfielder was an important fixture in the team and alongside John Lundstram was forming a powerful and efficient partnership in midfield.
Hammering home the opener in extra time of the Scottish Cup Final, there is still plenty of quality in the Scotland international yet and Jacko is also a standard setter.
It’s a big few months for the midfielder as he looks to enter the new season fully fit and firing and if he can then we’ve absolutely no qualms with Rangers offering him a new deal.
But if Ryan Jack’s injury problems persist, then you can expect Rangers will have a big decision to make on his future in the coming months.
Meanwhile, Rangers have been linked to a young Turkish star as the transfer window opens in Scotland.
