Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack has been pictured back in training, with manager Steven Gerrard having confirmed that the 27-year-old is fit and available for selection.
The Scottish international has missed the last four games due to a calf injury which forced him off at half time in the defeat to Hearts last month.
Supporters on Twitter are delighted to see Jack back on the training pitch, with many feeling that the team have struggled without him in the heart of midfield:
He’s been badly missed

Jack will almost certainly be in the squad when the Gers travel to Kilmarnock tomorrow night. Although the midfielder doesn’t generally chip in with goals and assists, he is the heartbeat of Gerrard’s side, winning possession and setting up attacks for his side whilst playing in a deeper midfield role.
His return will certainly help the Light Blues’ chances of getting the three points at Rugby Park tomorrow, as they look to keep up the pressure on Celtic at the top of the table.
