Glasgow Rangers play host to the Scottish Premiership leaders Heart of Midlothian at Ibrox on Sunday afternoon, and they could have midfielder Ryan Jack back to play a part, according to Sky Sports.
The Scotland international has been out of action since featuring for his country last month, but he could be fit to take his place in the squad when the Edinburgh outfit come to town.
Steven Gerrard’s men will be bouncing from their 3-1 win over Rapid Vienna in the Europa League on Thursday evening, and they will look to take that form into the match with the league leaders, who have already turned Rangers’ bitter rivals Celtic over this term.
Jack picked up an injury playing for Scotland last month and he has been missed by Rangers, but he could return for one of the biggest matches of their season.
The Gers head into the clash in the bottom half of the table after Saturday’s fixtures and are eight points off top spot, so they will be keen to get the better of Craig Levein’s men to narrow that gap to five points, heading into the break for the upcoming internationals.
Having Jack back gives Gerrard another option in the centre of the park, which could be crucial after their exploits on Thursday evening.
The former Liverpool legend will once again be without the long-term injury victim Jamie Murphy, but he was hoping he might be able to call upon Lee Wallace.
That is unlikely to be the case though with the defender not yet right, so he is expected to be given the international break to recovery fully from his injury, before being considered for selection once again.
All eyes will be on Kyle Lafferty to see if he can break the hearts of the team he left to return to Ibrox back in August.
