Scotland supporters have praised Ryan Jack after the Rangers star put in a strong performance in midfield in the 1-0 Nations League win over the Czech Republic on Wednesday night.
Steve Clarke’s side enjoyed their third successful night at Hampden in less than a week following a dramatic penalty shootout Euro 2020 playoff win over Israel and a Nations League victory over Slovakia.
Jack was involved in all three, playing 83 minutes against Israel, coming on as a late substitute against Slovakia and playing the full match against the Czechs.
Some Rangers fans would probably rather Jack wasn’t taking part in a Scotland triple-header ahead of an Old Firm, but he’s now really beginning to establish himself at international level.
The 28-year-old started alongside Callum McGregor and John McGinn in midfield and looked very much at home in an assured display.
His ability to keep possession was key after Scotland took an early lead and he proved a constant menace for the opposition, snapping at the heels of dangerous players like Vladimir Darida throughout.
Plenty of Scotland fans had nothing but praise for his performance.
Here’s a selection of reactions from Twitter:

i think that was Ryan Jack’s best game for Scotland tonight.. Declan Gallagher at the back is making himself undroppable. Considine solid again giving Clarke the right sort of selection problem.
