Ryan Jack poised to stay: Midfield maestro to extend ibrox stay
Experienced midfielder Ryan Jack is on the verge of penning a one-year contract extension to remain at Rangers according to The Scottish Sun.
Jack, 31, has featured prominently for the Gers this campaign, racking up 35 appearances under manager Michael Beale’s tutelage.
Negotiations over fresh terms have progressed swimmingly in recent weeks, with an agreement poised to be officially rubber stamped.
While the Scotland international has attracted interest from clubs on both sides of the border, he is desperate to continue plying his trade at Ibrox, where he has settled with his family.
The impending deal will come as welcome news for the Ibrox faithful. Although the season has yet to conclude, Beale’s proactiveness in addressing his summer transfer business bodes well.
A raft of Rangers players see their contracts expire come season’s end and are expected to move on, but supporters have clamoured for months for Jack to commit his future.
Ryan Jack ready to extend Rangers tenure
The midfield metronome has been a rare bright spark in an otherwise dour campaign for Rangers, with Beale leaning on his experience for pivotal fixtures whenever he is at full fitness.
Jack’s renaissance has also seen him become a regular fixture in Steve Clarke’s Scotland squads.
Retaining the battle-hardened Jack will benefit the likes of young Nicolas Raskin, who is still finding his feet in the cut and thrust of the Scottish Premiership.
Hopefully, Jack’s future can be resolved ahead of the season finale, allowing Beale and Rangers to turn their attention to recruiting fresh faces elsewhere.
