Ryan Jack quickly becoming Steven Gerrard’s most important player at Rangers

The midfielder has been in fine form at the start of the 2019/20 campaign.

Rangers carried on their early season good form with a 6-1 rout of Hibernian in their first domestic game at Ibrox.

Steven Gerrard’s side secured the dominant victory on the back of Thursday’s fantastic 4-2 win over Midtjylland in the Europa League.

Goals in yesterday’s win came via a Jermain Defoe hat-trick, a brace for Alfredo Morelos and a solitary strike from Sheyi Ojo.

It has been far too long since Rangers tasted silverware. More performances of this nature, however, could have Celtic worried.

 

One man who has been part of everything good about the Gers lately is midfielder Ryan Jack.

The 27-year-old arrived at Ibrox in 2017 and has since made 72 appearances for the club.

His versatility is a superb asset to Gerrard. Jack can operate in pretty much any central midfield role, whether it be box-to-box or protecting the back four.

He has shown in the first couple of challenging fixtures that amid a plethora of attacking quality, Jack might just be Gerrard’s most important player.

He will be the foundation that allows the likes of Aribo and Ojo to thrive. Jack is integral to how Gerrard wants his team to play and his start to the campaign will have delighted his boss.

At 27 Jack is approaching his peak and on current form, he could actually be the man to steer Gerrard and Rangers towards some badly needed silverware this season.
