Following yet another absolute horror show from Scotland against the Czech U21s, while the visitors got a barely-deserved win, there’s no denying the biggest relief from this break is the lack of injury to any of the three Rangers men involved, particularly the vulnerable Ryan Jack.
Jack of course was a victim of Steve Clarke’s haphazard management which led to injury for the Rangers midfielder, and Clarke’s ignoring of Jack’s ongoing knee issues was an issue of major contention from Steven Gerrard, who lost his man for a number of matches.
So all we can say after yet another diabolical Scotland match, in yet another hideous Scotland era, is that we’re relieved Jack especially is fit and healthy to face Dundee United this weekend.
As many on the site have pointed out, Scotland are of no real concern any more to most Rangers fans, and our only worry is losing our players through injury on national duty, as has happened many times before, not least to Jack.
So we can just be glad it didn’t materialise this time, and indeed that Jack was overlooked for the match in the Czech Republic.
We always want our players to do well and represent their countries – but when it comes to Scotland, that doesn’t quite apply so much.
