Ryan Jack will not be risked against Slavia Prague
Steven Gerrard has decided not to risk Ryan Jack ahead of Rangers’ opening clash with Europa League last-16 opponents Slavia Prague on Thursday.
The Scotland midfielder has shrugged off a calf complaint but Ibrox boss Gerrard has decided to keep back Jack for the second leg at Ibrox next week.
Skipper James Tavernier (knee) is still out along with long-term victim Nikola Katic (knee), the suspended Leon Balogun and ineligible Jermain Defoe but Kemar Roofe does return from a calf complaint.
Both the former Leeds striker and midfielder Glen Kamara are just one yellow card away from a ban.
