Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack has sustained an injury whilst on international duty with Scotland.
Manager Steve Clarke confirmed that Jack had sustained some swelling around his knee.
However, given the injury was sustained on Thursday and Jack made himself available for Friday’s 2-1 defeat to Russia – although he never played – it does not appear to be too serious.
“Ryan Jack has a little bit of swelling on his knee. We’re going to assess that,” said Steve Clarke, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“It just came up in training on Thursday but he made himself available for the Russia game.
“It’s still up today so he’s a little doubt for Belgium.”
As Steve Clarke explains, the injury threatens to keep the on-form Rangers midfielder out of Scotland’s match Belgium on Monday night.
Some Rangers fans reacted after the national team’s latest defeat by claiming Jack deserves a place in the first XI over Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay.
Whether Jack would or would not be involved against Belgium if injury was not an issue remains to be seen.
But there’s little doubting that if the Rangers midfielder is called upon, Jack will do a solid job for his country in the middle of the park.
