Rangers without Ryan Jack for second leg against Royal Antwerp
Ryan Jack will sit out Rangers’ Europa League return match with Royal Antwerp, but Steven Gerrard is confident the Scotland midfielder will only be out for a fortnight.
Jack suffered a recurrence of his old calf problems as he limped off early against Dundee United on Sunday, but scans have shown there is no tear to the muscle.
James Tavernier (knee) and Kemar Roofe (calf) are expected to be back in around three weeks, while Nathan Patterson, Calvin Bassey and Bongani Zungu have rejoined Gerrard’s squad after being forced to quarantine having breached Covid-19 rules. Jermain Defoe is not in Gers’ European squad, while long-term knee-injury victim Nikola Katic is still missing.
Rangers lead 4-3 from last week’s first leg in Flanders.
