Ryan Jack's latest Rangers blow leaves some fans thinking he's 'finished'

Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack missed out on last night’s Europa League draw with Lyon after another setback in his long-running return from injury – and the latest blow for the Scotland international has some Gers fans thinking he is “finished” at Ibrox.

Jack’s injury problems have been well documented after spending most of the last year on the sidelines and after managing less than an hour of football on his latest comeback, fans fear we’ve seen the best of the Gers number 8.

With the midfielder widely expected to have featured last night, there was plenty of disappointment when Gio van Bronckhorst confirmed he’d picked up a knock in training which had forced him to leave the midfielder out of his squad again, telling BT Sport before the game: “No, Ryan wasn’t available. He was one of the players I had in mind to give minutes.

“But he had a slight setback in his recovery. He played 20, 25 minutes the last game we played so that was good to get him minutes.

“He isn’t ready because of a slight injury he had in training.”

Hopefully, Jack can recover and get back to his best but with every passing week that he remains out, it is harder and harder to see him ever returning to the side and being as important as he was pre-injury.

There are still 18 months left on his Ibrox contract and while nobody is suggesting it is time to just rip that up, more and more Rangers fans now think it is time for Gio, Ross Wilson and the scouting staff to identify a long-term replacement for him.

However, these fans think Jack’s time at Ibrox is quickly coming to an end if he can’t get clear of his injury problems.

Last night’s 1-1 draw with Lyon was important in regard to finances, but just how much did Rangers earn from the six group fixtures they played?
