Ryan Jack faced the media alongside Rangers’ assistant manager, Gary McAllister, on Friday afternoon.
Jack would have been as disappointed as anyone with Wednesday night’s result, as the former Aberdeen captain looked to get one over on his old side.
However, he remained upbeat ahead of the Gers’ trip to face Dundee on Sunday.
‘Every time you have a blip and a bad result, you always say the same things, and that being that you need to show a reaction’, said the 26-year-old.
‘I am sure as a squad and with the mentality we have in the changing room and the leaders we have in the changing room, there is no doubt in my mind that come Sunday, we are going to be up for the game.’
Improvements made from last season
The midfielder went added that despite the midweek disappointment, he feels the squad is much stronger than last year’s.
‘Of course we have progressed, and no disrespect to previous squads. But, the quality of this squad is very high and for myself to be playing in it too, it’s been great so far.’
It’s great to see that Jack isn’t taking his opportunities for granted. He knows that with the current squad size, he needs to fight for his chances.
Despite not making much of an impression on Wednesday, he looks set to start again tomorrow. Scott Arfield is completing his suspension, and Jack should continue in the centre of the park.
