Rangers manager Gio van Bronckorst is sweating over the fitness of Kemar Roofe ahead of Sunday’s clash with Hearts as he confirmed Ryan Jack is out of the trip to Edinburgh.
Jack was expected to play in last night’s draw with Lyon in the Europa League but missed out after picking up a knock in the final training session before facing the French side.

Van Bronckhorst will have Alfredo Morelos and Fashion Sakala available again but confirmed there’s been no change to the existing players missing through injury going into Sunday’s game at Tynecastle.
“No, we don’t have anybody back from injury,” van Bronckhorst said [RangersTV].
“We have Morelos ans Sakala back from the game against Lyon. Ryan is still out and we have to assess Kemar Roofe. He is a doubt as well for Sunday.”
“I don’t know if it is the same injury [for Jack]. We had a moment in the last training session before Lyon where he went off the pitch with a problem so we are still diagnosing the problem. Once we know more we will say but so far, he will not be available for Sunday.”
Jack’s injury problems have left some fans fearing he is ‘finished’ at Ibrox after spending most of the last year out of action with various injury problems.
The Rangers midfielder has made three appearances this season, the last of which came in the 3-0 win over Dundee at Ibrox last weekend as he came off the bench for the final 17 minutes against the Dens Park side.
The draw against Lyon last night was important in regard to finances, but just how much did Rangers earn from the six group fixtures they played?
