Ryan Jack has returned to a specialist after his injury troubles, which sadly GVB informed us about last night, once again flared up in training.
The midfielder, who was experiencing swelling after each session following his long-awaited return to the turf, managed to get a couple of cameos recently, but unfortunately the on-going issues, which have plagued Jack for years, have forced him into going back to a specialist to see if they can find the real root of this.
The problem the Scotland midfielder has is he’s not getting any younger, and at 29 he’s already past the halfway point in his career.
Manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst could only say we’re getting a diagnosis over the weekend, and cannot say anything otherwise about this latest setback.
We’ll be brutally honest – it’s not looking at all good for Jack at this point. Injury after setback after niggle after issue all seems to be adding up.
Does it all go back to Steve Clarke abusing the training of Jack and breaking him on international duty?
We’d have to point the finger a bit in truth, because it was nowhere near this bad before that ‘incident’.
Either way, all we can do is wish Jack well and pray it’s not as bad as we fear.
