Steven Gerrard has confirmed that Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack is an injury doubt ahead of the weekend.
The 27-year-old was withdrawn from the Scotland squad during the international break due to a knee injury.
That problem now threatens to interrupt his club schedule and fans will have to wait to see if he is passed fit.
The Gers host Livingston on Saturday afternoon in the league and it’s set to be a tricky fixture at Ibrox, as their opponents have started the new season in strong form.
Livingston are unbeaten in the league so far with eight points from four games and sit third in the table.
Rangers manager Gerrard has revealed that Jack is a doubt for the upcoming game and aimed a slight jibe at Scotland for his injury.
“Ryan Jack is a doubt for the weekend, unfortunately, he was asked to do an 11k session a few days after the Old Firm match. It is a shame as he has missed the last 5/6 training sessions,” Gerrard said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.
It would be a significant blow for Rangers if Jack is absent at the weekend, as he’s developed into one of their most consistent performers in recent times.
The central midfielder is an ever-present in Gerrard’s XI and has already played 11 game across all competitions this season, including every minute in the league.
He forms a solid midfield trio alongside Joe Aribo and Steven Davis, who have looked a well balanced combination.
Rangers need to ensure they respond to a defeat at home to Celtic in their last game with a win, but Livingston could be a tough nut to crack and they will need to be at their best.
