Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack has picked up a knock on his ankle and won’t be available for the Light Blues’ match against Hibernian tonight.
The 29-year-old was on the wrong end of a heavy challenge from Hearts midfielder Beni Baningime on Sunday, and fans on Twitter are not happy about the player being sidelined once again:
Just knew that was gonna be the case.

This is the result of referees who dont punish persistent fouling.

Predictable 🤦🏻♂️ far to injury prone. Shame because when he plays he’s some player

Jack has had a nightmare twelve months with injury and it was hoped that he had finally gotten over his fitness problems after featuring in three of the Gers’ last four matches.
Hopefully, it is only a minor setback and nothing more. It was a contact injury, rather than anything that would suggest he’d be out for a while.
However, with Jack, you just don’t know. He is undoubtedly one of the first names on the teamsheet when he is fit and available but he can’t really be relied upon to play week in and week out.
