Rangers produced a professional away performance against Maribor on Thursday night to progress to the play-off round of the UEFA Europa League.
Steven Gerrard’s side have yet to be defeated so far this season and have now kept three clean sheets in a row away from home in European competition, an excellent achievement no matter the competition.
A big part of the new solidity in the side has been the midfield raising their game to offer more support to the defensive line, with Ryan Jack leading the charge in recent matches much to the delight of his new manager.
Gerrard has had a huge influence on the former Aberdeen man’s game and he is emerging as one of the support’s most favourite players.
Many fans took to Twitter on Thursday night to share their joy with the 26-year-old’s performance…
McGregor superb tonight Ryan Jack what a player he is turning out to be with the guidance of Gerrard ????????????

Superb performance tonight, the two centre halves were outstanding, Morelos worked himself into the ground up top, Ryan Jack just seems to have taken his game to a new level under Gerrard and as for big Shagger, what else needs to be said!

Ryan Jack has been out for months with a serious injury
Comes back , gets injured, comes back again.
And has been fucking magnificent for us.
He is going to a massive player for us this season, and beyond.
He's a class act
