Rangers official partner moots permanent exit of Ryan Jack after news emerges

Heart and Hand believe that Rangers offering a new deal to Ryan Jack may not be the best option given his age and injury concerns.

Michael Beale revealed on 21 April that Jack will be out for up to a month which means he could not be back before the end of the season.

With his deal running out in the summer, the club’s official partners questioned whether giving him a new one may be the best idea in the world.

Via Twitter, they said, “Any new deal for Jack comes with the understanding he’s going to miss 50% of the matches. He’s a first pick for me when fit but we really have to move on from ‘when fit’ being the key phrase for large chunks of our squad.”


Jack is a top professional and a talented player whenever he’s fit but the days he’s available appear to be reducing season after season.

At 31, his body isn’t growing any younger and injury issues are expected to persist in the coming months so it’s a decision the club need to make practically.

They might think with their heart and make the emotional choice for his dressing-room presence but that may stop the club from moving forward.

They need to have young and able players who are capable to play every week as that’s how teams are built for the future.

Right now, there seem to be players who aren’t good enough to make this a title-winning team still at the club and that’s not something that should happen.

In other Rangers news, the club may now approach a sporting director who built a Champions League winning team and can hire him for free.
