Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack has been an integral part of Steven Gerrard’s side since the Liverpool icon took over at Ibrox last year – and Gers fans can’t get their head around why the midfielder can’t get a look in for Scotland.
The former Aberdeen captain put in another fantastic performance against Hibs yesterday as the Gers smashed the Easter Road side 6-1 and won plaudits from fans and pundits alike.
Since arriving at Ibrox, Jack has shown exactly why the Gers were so keen to bring him to Glasgow in the first place and he’s only continued to improve under Gerrard.
The signing of Steven Davis seems to have given Jack more licence to get forward and the Gers number 8 appears to be relishing the freedom to contribute more to the attacking phases of play.
Positionally, he’s also become a far more intelligent player than the one who arrived from Aberdeen and the benefit of working with top-class former midfielders in Gerrard and Gary McAllister can’t be under-estimated.
Steve Clarke’s side are back in action next month when they face Russia in a Euro 2020 qualifier at Hampden before welcoming the top-ranked side in the world to Glasgow three days later – and one Gers fan thinks that if Jack doesn’t get a call-up then he should retire from internationals completely.
Here are some of the calls from Rangers fans for Jack to be included in Steve Clarke’s next Scotland squad:
Scotland do have some decent centre midfielders at the moment but Ryan Jack should be in the conversation when it comes to finding the right balance in certain games. Has really improved under Gerrard. https://t.co/MCkUOLvlZi

Ryan jack and Steven Davis. What does jack need to do to be in the Scotland squad? I’ve not seen him have a bad game in a long time.

If Ryan Jack isn't in the next Scotland squad then he might as well retire from international football because he'll never have a better chance than now

Ryan Jack should be in Scotland squad but their loss is Rangers gain.

How on Earth is Ryan Jack not in the Scotland team, never mind the squads.

Jack is playing out his skin this season. Got even more to his game than last year. Doesn't even get picked for Scotland squad when should be starting 11. https://t.co/HWJNDMzi9f

Jack the MotM by a mile. The guy was class today. How he can't get in that shambles of a Scotland squad is laughable.
