Rangers manager Steven Gerrard pointed the finger at the Scottish FA for their poor treatment of Ryan Jack which has left the Gers midfielder sidelined through injury – and Gers fans on Twitter couldn’t believe how reckless the national team’s staff have been with the Ibrox star.

Gerrard hopes Jack will be fit to return to training today but slammed the “careless” treatment Jack received at the hands of the national team.

Gers fans on Twitter were quick to agree with the Rangers manager – with one saying the Gers should sue the SFA.
