Michael Stewart was blown away by Ryan Jack’s “unstoppable” goal on Saturday as Rangers won 1-0 against Kilmarnock at Ibrox.
Jack, 28, netted his second goal of the season in stunning style when he volleyed the ball past Killie goalkeeper Colin Doyle in the first half.
While it wasn’t the best of performances by the Gers this season, there’s no doubt that win over Kilmarnock will be remembered for it being won by a moment of absolute perfection by Jack.
Ex-Hibs midfielder Stewart, one of Rangers’ harshest critics, couldn’t help by wax lyrical about the goal.
“It’s unstoppable,” Stewart said on BBC Sportscene on Sunday.
“The first touch is perfect because it just sits up. When you think about youngsters, the importance of a first touch, not just in this instance here, but a good first-touch to control the ball to set yourself. And here, if he doesn’t get that first-touch right then he’s got no opportunity to get the strike off.
“The volley is just right out of the top drawer and it’s in the top bin.
“Absolutely sensational strike from Ryan Jack.”
Goal of the season decided?
In any normal season, that would be it. Jack’s goal would have won the goal of the season award.
However, this is no normal season because Steven Gerrard’s side have scored some truly incredible goals this season in both Scotland and in Europe.
Jack’s goal was special and was perhaps the best scored in the Premiership this season but Kemar Roofe’s strike away at Standard Liege in the Europa League still stands out for us.
Even Gerrard admitted himself that Roofe’s goal is his favourite of the season and claimed Jack will be unfortunate to not have the best.
Jack’s been a magnificent player for Rangers since joining from Aberdeen in 2017.
We’ve dropped points three times in the Premiership this season and on two of those occasions, the Scotland midfielder didn’t start.
When he’s in the side, we’re so much better and without that goal against Kilmarnock on Saturday, it could have easily been another two points dropped.
It could end up being a historic goal for Rangers Football Club.
