We’re delighted to welcome injury expert Dr Rajpal Brar as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the injury situation at Rangers...
Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack remains a doubt for the game against Hibs on Saturday (21 October), according to Dr Rajpal Brar.
The injury expert believes that he’s likely to miss the contest after he pulled out of the Scotland squad during the international.
While there’s no clarity about what the setback is and how severe it is, there’s a high likelihood of him not even being fit enough to play the next game.
Discussing his situation exclusively with Ibrox News, Brar, a doctor in physical therapy and a sports scientist, said:
“Not much information on this at all so it’s difficult to give any read on it.
“Never a great sign when you have an extensive injury record but we just don’t know what is going on.
“It surely will be a major cause for concern for Rangers and I think he’ll miss their next game.“
Jack did not even feature in the 3-0 win against St Mirren before the international break and that was not welcome news at the club.
They already had an interim manager in charge and a long injury list which became even longer with the 31-year-old’s name in it.
The international break had key fixtures for Scotland, but Jack’s fitness saw him being forced to pull out of Steve Clarke’s squad.
It remains to be seen what the official word is from the club when Philippe Clement speaks to the media.
