Scotland assistant manager Steven Reid believes that Rangers star Ryan Jack is “all good” after making his return from injury against Galatasaray last week, and with the Old Firm looming.

Jack is in the Scotland squad for the triple-header with Israel, Slovakia and the Czech Republic and Reid confirmed he was allowed to link up with the national team a little later than the many of his team-mates after the Gers hosted Ross County on Sunday.

Rangers fans were concerned that international duty would aggravate his injury ahead of facing Celtic and the news that he’s come through his return for Rangers seemingly unscathed is a big positive.

“Jack was part of a group that met up later on yesterday having played on Sunday,” Reid said, as quoted by the Glasgow Times.


“As far as we’re aware he’s all good. He played a little bit in the week and the 65 on Sunday, so it’s all good.”

Since returning, Jack has made a second-half substitute appearance against Galatasaray and then played over an hour after being named in the starting XI against Ross County.

The signing of Bongani Zungu on a season-long loan from Amiens means Jack faces serious competition for his place from the 29-times capped South African international.
