Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack has admitted that he’d be delighted to be named in Steve Clarke’s Scotland squad for the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers with Russia and Belgium but insists he’s focused on his form for the Gers after a run of fantastic performances.
With a massive few games coming up for Rangers, Jack is focused on helping the Gers book a place in the Europa League group stage ahead of facing Celtic next weekend.
“I’ve always been focused on doing as well as I can for my club,” Jack said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“If that call comes then I’ll be delighted.
“First and foremost, it is Rangers I play for and that is where I need to be putting in good performances.
“If I get recognition off the back of that then I’ll be delighted.”
Jack’s form has really improved playing alongside Steven Davis in the centre of midfield, although it’s clear he was a big favourite of Gerrard’s long before Davis’ return.
He looks so much more confident when on the ball now and rather than being someone who would win the ball and quickly look to move it on to his more talented team-mates, he’s now one of the players others look to for help to get them out of a tight space.
If he doesn’t make the squad for the upcoming qualifiers then there’s got to be some serious questions asked about what Clarke is doing if he’s not picking, arguably, the in-form Scottish midfielder.
