Gerrard admitted the midfielder is out for the Ibrox side's home clash with Hamilton tomorrow after picking up a calf or knee knock in the defeat to Young Boys. The manager also confirmed that the midfielder has been offered a new deal.

Speaking to the media the manager said: "I don't think the problem is huge, but he's out for the weekend and he's certainly a doubt for Scotland."

Jack's last appearance for Scotland came in the 4-0 friendly defeat to Belgium in September 2018.

Gerrard praised Jack as a crucial member of his team. He said: "Ryan sets the example, he sets the standards, every day in training.

"More often than not he's the strongest trainer. He's a winner. He takes his training level into games.

"We're delighted with him. We've made him a contract offer that we're hoping will progress and be signed up pretty soon."
