Scotland manager Steve Clarke has revealed that Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack is continuing to struggle with a knee injury. The 27-year-old was an unused substitute against Russia on Friday, but his participation in the game versus Belgium tomorrow now looks to be in doubt.
Jack is said to have picked up the injury in a training session last week and has yet to recover fully from the problem. Clarke said:
“Ryan Jack has a little bit of swelling on his knee. We’re going to assess that. It just came up in training on Thursday but he made himself available for the Russia game. It’s still up today so he’s a little doubt for Belgium.”
Rangers supporters will be hoping Jack is fit and available when the Light Blues face Livingston in the Premiership clash at Ibrox on Saturday afternoon, as they look to get back to winning ways after the Old Firm derby.
The midfielder is a crucial first-team player for manager Steven Gerrard, having started eleven of the Gers’ 13 games so far this campaign. The only matches he has missed were the 6-0 win over St Joseph’s in July and the 3-0 victory against East Fife in the League Cup last month.
