Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has confirmed that Ryan Jack is unavailable for Wednesday night’s clash against Hibernian at Ibrox, as there is “no chance” of him playing.
The Gers host Hibs for a Scottish Premiership fixture and all still be without the influential midfielder.
Jack has missed back-to-back league matches with a calf problem and is once again going to be on the sidelines in midweek.
The 27-year-old came off injured in a defeat to Hearts, while since then the team have beaten Ross County and dropped more points in a draw with Aberdeen.
Gerrard has confirmed (official Twitter) in his press conference that Jack will miss the upcoming match, but did state it “won’t be long” before he can return.
Jack is the unsung hero in the Rangers XI and his absence in recent games has highlighted what a great job he does in front of the back four.
The Scottish central midfielder is usually great at breaking up play and starting off play with his calmness in possession, but the Light Blues need to try find a way to win without him.
He’s a real leader on the pitch that lift his teammates and it’s up to other to raise their game while he is on the sidelines.
It’s a positive boost that Jack is expected back imminently, but Rangers really can’t afford to be dropping many more points in their hunt to chase down Old Firm rivals Celtic in the title race.
