Ryan Jack believes performing at the highest level with Rangers in the Europa League is helping him in his endeavours with the Scotland national team.
The 27-year-old has become a key member of Steven Gerrard’s side who have faced off against the likes of Feyenoord and Porto in Europe recently.
The Ibrox star has also recently been used as a starter in the Scotland squad and speaking to the Scottish Sun he made it clear that playing for Rangers against top opposition is helping him with international football.
“The experience I have gained playing in Europe always helps, of course it does.
“I am playing for a good team at club level and I am facing good opposition in the likes of Porto and Feyenoord.
“That does help when I come away on these trips. I am hoping for a successful season for club and country. Everything is going well so far.
“Club level has been very good. I have been doing well in Europe and now I’ve got a start for my country after being called up.”
There is no doubt that the higher standard Rangers play at, the higher the standard the Scottish football team is likely to produce.
Jack is proving to be one of Scotland’s top midfield operators, even with tough competition in one of Scotland’s strongest positions.
Gerrard has been getting the best out of Jack in a Rangers shirt and the hope will be that he can continue to thrive for both club and country. Fans at Ibrox will hope that continues in the Europa League and that Rangers can find their way out of the group stages.
