Great to see Gerrard stick up for Rangers and Scottish Football.
Bowyer clamped in today’s papers. 👍
And a dig at Clarke and SFA over the treatment of Ryan Jack whilst away with Scotland 👍.

Good to see him sticking up for Scottish football and Rangers, don’t like us having dogs at the SFA though.
If indeed RJ is carrying an injury why did Rangers release him for duty? Or why didn’t RJ highlight this and either pull out the squad or reduce his workload.
I have a feeling this isn’t all the SFAs fault.

{Ed001's Note - the club have to release players for international duty.}

Cheers Ed. I though this was a decision based on the player and the club. I didn’t know the player had to be released.
Even still why didn’t RJ mention this injury to anyone or pull out the squad at the clubs request?

{Ed001's Note - the Scotland staff are aware of his ongoing knee problem but they decided to make him go on the run anyway. If you are a player who wants to play for your country, you either do as you are told or you don't play.}

So that take me back to my original point. Why didn’t RJ say not taking part in the run due to his knee? People are giving the SFA a hard time here, sure RJ has to shoulder some blame.

{Ed001's Note - because he is a fringe player who wants to make himself a first choice player. It is a bit like when you are going for promotion at work, you get asked to do a bit of overtime and you know it is going to annoy your partner when you are home late, but you really want that promotion. He wants to be a regular Scotland starter and he needs to show willing to do so. The question is why is a fitness coach at international level asking a player to do a lengthy run just 2 days after playing 90 minutes? He should be doing recovery work. Scotland's fitness and conditioning coach obviously has no idea what he is doing and should be immediately relieved of his duties if he doesn't even know the basics.}

Ed, you’ve obviously never met my wife!

That’s a fair point about the fitness coach but I still can’t see RJ being completely honest about his condition. If he was then surely as you say the fitness guys would have him do recovery work.

{Ed001's Note - it doesn't matter what Jack says or does, a coach is meant to be the one who assesses a player's condition, player's will always say they are fine. The coaches had the information, they are just crap at their job.}

Jeezo it’s the big bad rangers player it’s at fault for injuring himself if it was up to me no rangers fc player would be going to play for the (republic) of Scotland end of.

Gerrard stated jack has an ongoing knee condition which he has to manage, stevie says the sfa are fully aware of it so there's no1 to blame bar the incompetent employees of the sfa, amateurish at best.

13 Sep 2019 13:16:41
So Ryan Jack can’t turn round and say “hold on, my knee is playing up a bit. I think it’s best if I do some recovery work”.

Forrest did one session due to injury that got him subbed in rangers game.

13 Sep 2019 17:16:57
The treatment a jack lol we are 4 games in? If he can’t do a run then a worry for him long term fitness wise.

13 Sep 2019 17:48:33
If Ryan Jack had not had any adverse reaction to the run and got a game in a scotland shirt at the weekend, would you all still be having this reaction.
He reacted badly to training. It could have happened the day after he returned to rangers, would you all be saying the coaching staff at rangers were amatuers.

13 Sep 2019 20:27:52
@johny - it happened whilst he was under the duty of care of the Scotland set up so your point is null and void. 👍.

14 Sep 2019 10:27:42
Don't know what it means by having a knee condition managed, if I was Jack I would look after my own welfare, and not put my mobility, after my football career is finished, at risk, by having a condition managed instead of having it cured,
