Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack has admitted his winner in December’s Old Firm will probably be the “most special moment” of his career after it was named the Gers’ goal of the season.

The midfielder struck the only goal in December as he fired the ball home to seal the Gers first league win over their bitter rivals in far too long.

Jack admitted that some of his team-mates told him that he’ll be remembered for the rest of his life after scoring an Old Firm winner.

“Old Firms, they’re hectic, it’s 100 miles an hour every game and I just remember Kenty pulling the ball back and I just kinda thought ‘Hit the target’ and thankfully it went in, and I’m delighted with the goal,” Jack told RangersTV.

“It means a lot. You’ve got the likes of Dozza (Graham Dorrans) and Andy (Halliday) that have said to me ‘Look, you’re going to be remembered for scoring the winner in an Old Firm match for the rest of your life’.

“Obviously at the minute you don’t really get time to think about that, but I think when my career finishes and I look back there’s no doubt it’ll probably be the most special point in my career.”

The midfielder isn’t known for his goal-scoring prowess but December’s winner will see him held dearly by Rangers fans for years to come.

After an injury-hit campaign last season, the former Aberdeen skipper has been integral for the Gers this season.

Hopefully, now he can help Steven Gerrard’s side take the next step and land their first major trophy as a group.
