Ryan Jack’s good form feels like it’s gone unnoticed outside of Ibrox this month.

The Scotland International has been roaming around like a little midfield general at Ibrox and has been a pivotal part of Rangers team. Even Steven Gerrard’s been blown away by his displays.

But Alex McLeish never thought the former Aberdeen captain worthy of a Scotland call-up.

Fans rage but it feels inevitable

Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to comment on the squad. Some have raged about Ryan Jack not being included:



Whilst others have been a little more level headed.

I tend to lean more to the thoughts of Andrew Dickson.

By-and-large this is the squad McLeish has been tinkering with, and even though some of the players are off-form, he’s probably keeping some consistency at the beginning of the season. Jack’s also just returning from a heavy lay-off.

Jack has had a more productive season than Celtic’s Jack Hendry or Aberdeen’s Graeme Shinnie, but it is early days.

If Ryan Jack keeps up this form then there’s no doubt he will breakthrough into this Scotland team. When he does, expect him to stay there.

Only one Rangers player this time round (and it might be a good thing)

Allan McGregor is the only Rangers player who makes the squad. Greegsy has been quite sensational since returning and he’ll be flying the Royal Blue flag as a starter. Jamie Murphy probably would’ve made the squad had he not been injured.

It seems frustrating but as Rangers pick up a head of steam and fixtures find a rhythm, one of our most influential players having a fortnight off could be huge.

Jack doesn’t travel and after a flying start to the season, which included an early niggle, he could use the rest. It certainly won’t do Rangers’ chances any harm.
