The 30-year-old Ibrox star has seen the last few years of his career besieged by injury and there is dwindling hope amongst Rangers fans that the player can reach the heights of a few years ago.
But Scotland boss Steve Clarke has clearly failed to give up on the player with Jacko coming off the bench in the 2-1 defeat to Turkey in Diyarbakır.
Ryan Jack replaced Billy Gilmour after 67 minutes and got another 25 or so minutes under his belt after coming off the bench for Rangers in the weekend’s 1-1 draw with St Mirren.
Ryan Jack returns for Scotland amid Rangers injury doubts
With the player now having five weeks to get back to full fitness, Rangers fans will not be holding out much hope Ryan Jack can overcome his injury issues ahead of the rest of the campaign.
This comes with the perennially injured Ibrox star picking up problems upon recovering and as a result, plenty have raised doubts regarding a new Rangers deal for the player.
Ryan Jack is out of contract in the summer but Rangers fans – whilst sympathetic – have begun to run out of patience with a squad of crocks whose fitness problems continue to cost the club dearly.
Rangers have a whole range of injuries in the side with Ryan Jack’s problems just the tip of the iceberg with several of the club’s highest earning players sidelined.
This has contributed to a woeful campaign for Rangers to date with humiliation in the Champions League coupled with falling nine points behind in the title race.
If Ryan Jack can get back to his level then Rangers will have a real asset on their hands but knowing our luck we’ll hand the player a new three-year deal and he’ll spend 2/3s of it on the treatment table.
