An Ibrox Noise clarification

Ibrox Noise wished to offer an update to our earlier piece on Ryan Jack, which attracted quite the colourful response from a few readers who hurled all kinds of insults at us including that we’re liars and it was nonsense.

So we wanted to double down on such misleading piffle and clarify once and for all what Jack’s situation is.

If you read all of this, you will learn the truth about it, and the full detail.

Last weekend Steven Gerrard said the following:

“He’s good, he’s progressing well. He sees a surgeon in the middle of next week and hopefully he gets the green light to resume full training. He’s training with the boys right now but it’s all unopposed which is obviously all very different. If we get the green light from the surgeon on Wednesday, Ryan is good to go full throttle with the group – then it’s a case of getting minutes in his legs.”

Wednesday was the Wednesday just past.

Today’s quote is thus:

“Ryan Jack has trained with the group now for two, three days and had no issues. He’s got one more appointment in 10 days’ time for the full green light to go into aerial challenges and full-throttle football. That’s going to be like a new signing to us in 10 days.”

Let’s be clear – Steven Gerrard is saying EXACTLY the same today as he did 6 days ago. That means the news from Wednesday’s consultation was not as good as hoped, and Jack is still not ready for full opposed training.

Read it again if you must – the first quote they’re looking for the green light on Wednesday for full-blooded training, and today’s quote says they’re looking for the green light in 10 days for the same thing.

In the best case scenario he gets that green light the week after next but he won’t be match fit till nearly the end of next month given how long he’s been out.

We will NOT be called liars or misleading by anyone who is just keen to be antagonistic.

We will always report the news honestly – if we make a mistake, we hold our hands up to it, but they’re always honest errors.

We will never willingly mislead you, nor will we be called liars by people with nothing better to do.

Thank you and goodnight.
