The 29-year-old made his first appearance for the club since mid-February earlier this month as a second-half substitute against Ross County after overcoming a calf injury that robbed him of Rangers’ title run-in and Scotland’s Euro 2020 campaign.

However, the midfielder is back fully fit and pushing for a start against Sparta Prague tonight.

“It was an amazing feeling,” said Jack of his return. “Sometimes over the last seven and eight months it felt like it was really far away and it was going to be a long time until I got that feeling again.

"I was grateful to get back on the pitch and just shows me that the hard work and disappointments over the past seven months, they were all for a reason and I managed to get back on the pitch.”
