Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has now accused the Scotland training staff of becoming”careless” with Ryan Jack, as he picked up a knee injury on international duty.
The midfielder was shipped following his knee problem from the group and is now a doubt for the match against Livingston on Saturday of his team.
Gerrard said:”Unfortunately he had been asked to perform an 11k session two days after an Old Firm [derby], that left his knee flare upward.
“So we have been required to manage him, he’s needed to have a couple of procedures because.
“He did a light session with the physio [on Thursday] and we’re hoping to get him into coaching tomorrow.
“I think it’s just careless. You should never do 11k two weeks later playing 90 minutes. That.
“it is a shame because he has missed the past five/six coaching sessions, so we’ll have to build his fitness back up.”
Gerrard revealed his fitness coach has been in contact with the Scottish Football Association.
“Ryan’s have a knee difficulty he manages and he’s done for a very long time,” he added.
“The SFA are aware of that, their physical fitness coach is mindful of this. I believe everyone in Scotland watched the Old Business and saw Ryan play 90 minutes. And then 48 hours afterwards, he did a double session”
Even the Rangers boss also spoke of his delight at the return of Ryan Kent to Ibrox, since the 22-year-old joined the team in a deal that could be worth up to #7.5m on Deadline Day.
“We’re very happy. I don’t think that it’s any secret we tried for to get him , and we strove.
“To get him on a permanent deal and for him to locate a home – I am delighted.
“I know the fans and everybody at the club is delighted too. To get him , not only for a limited time, but for four decades, it’s fantastic for everyone.”
