RYAN JACK has agreed a contract extension with Rangers which will keep him at ibrox until at least 2023.

The Scotland international midfielder has become a key player at the club since the arrival of Steven Gerrard as manager last summer.

The Govan gaffer had made it clear the former Aberdeen star would be offered new terms, as Scotzine reported last week.

Gerrard told Rangers TV: “We’re delighted that Ryan has extended his contract with the club. He is a very easy to manage and is a real leader and winner on the pitch.

“Ryan sets very high standards for himself and for others around him and that is exactly the kind of player and mentality that we want in throughout our squad.

“We believe that there is a lot more to come from him before he reaches his potential and we look forward to working with him for the next few years.”

Jack added: “I’m delighted to commit my future to Rangers and the club have shown great ambition to get me re-signed on a new deal.

“I’m looking forward to the future now. With the length of contract the club has given me, I hope to repay that in the next three-and-a-half years.”

The tenacious middle-of-the-park operator had a difficult settling-in period with the Ibrox outfit after arriving from the Dons.

However, his stock has risen considerably under the guidance of the Liverpool legend as he looks to take his career forward at club and country level.
