Rangers fans react to the confirmed injury update on midfielder Ryan Jack

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has confirmed that Ryan Jack could be absent for the club’s next fixture – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have reacted negatively to the update.

The 28-year-old midfielder started during his side’s 4-0 victory against Aberdeen at the weekend in the league, but he could miss the upcoming game.

Gerrard’s side are now preparing to host Benfica at Ibrox on Thursday night in a Europa League match that will be vital in trying to qualify for the group stages.

Rangers recorded a 3-3 draw away to Portuguese giants Benfica in the previous meeting this season and the two clubs are currently top of Group D at the midway point.

The Gers boss has confirmed (official Twitter) that Jack is a “doubt” for the European fixture and his fitness is going to be assessed later on Wednesday.
