Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has accused the Scotland training team of becoming”helpless” with Ryan Jack, since he picked up a knee injury on international duty.
The midfielder was shipped from the squad after his knee problem flared up and is now a doubt for his team’s match against Livingston on Saturday.
Gerrard said:”Regrettably he was requested to do an 11k session after an Old Firm [derby], which made his knee flare up.
“So we have had to manage him, he has had to have a few procedures because.
“He did a light session with the physio [on Thursday] and we’re hoping to put him into training tomorrow.
“I think that it’s just careless. You should never do 11k two days after playing 90 minutes. That.
“It’s a shame since he has missed the past five/six coaching sessions, thus we are going to have to construct his fitness back up.”
Gerrard shown his fitness coach has been in contact.
“Ryan’s got a knee issue that he manages and he has done for quite a very long time,” he further added.
“The SFA are aware of this, their exercise trainer is mindful of this. I believe everyone in Scotland saw Ryan perform with 90 minutes and watched the Old Firm. And 48 hours later, he did a double session.”
The Rangers boss also spoke of his delight at the entrance of Ryan Kent to Ibrox, since the 22-year-old joined the club in a deal that could be worth around #7.5m on Deadline Day.
“We are very happy. I really don’t think it’s any secret just how hard we tried and we strove for to get him in.
“To get him a permanent deal and for him to locate a house – I’m delighted.
“I know the fans and everybody at the club is thrilled too. To get him here, not just for a brief while, except for four decades, it is fantastic for everyone.”
