Steven Gerrard shares injury update on Ryan Jack after Rangers win v Dundee United

Steven Gerrard has shared a big update on the fitness of Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack after he was forced off against Dundee United.

The 28-year-old was replaced by Glen Kamara in the opening quarter of the game, which the Bears went on to win 4-1 at Ibrox.

Gerrard shared that Jack felt some tightness in his calf and that the scan will reveal more although there shouldn’t be any tears.

Speaking after the game to the official club website, Gerrard claimed that the Bears could have helped themselves by taking action early.

“Hopefully we have got to the injury before it becomes an injury,” he said.

“He felt some tightness in his calf early in the game. He hasn’t felt anything tear which is good but we are going to have to scan it and see what the damage is but fingers crossed he is not out because he is so important to us.”

This would be a major negative.

It would definitely see Jack suffer too, not only physically but mentally. After only a handful of matches since his return, the midfielder is now facing more time out.

The 28-year-old has been excellent since he did return and has scored twice including that stunner that won the match against Kilmarnock last weekend.

Gerrard labelled Kamara top class after he came on, and the Finnish international will now be set for a massive role against Antwerp this week.
