Scotland’s national side received a 4-0 hammering at the hands of Belgium on Friday evening and Rangers did have an interest in the game with midfielder Ryan Jack taking a place on the substitutes bench for manager Alex McLeish.

Goals from Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard and a brace from Michy Batshuayi secured victory for them and Jack was introduced in the 53rd minute as the side trailed 3-0.

It’s harsh to blame the loss on Jack or imply he could’ve actually done much more given where the game was at when he entered play and depending on your standpoint, in the final half hour Belgium either took their foot off the gas given the halftime changes they made or Scotland’s changes did have some effect.

Jack definitely suffered though, for the part he played in their fourth goal on the day.

Whether criticism would’ve been that harsh had it not been for their fourth is open to debate, but it wasn’t a good night for anyone so he shouldn’t take it to heart.

Given he was reportedly booed by some sections of the crowd before he even stepped onto the pitch – well, it’s not the best way to motivate somebody to their best, is it? If you want to follow Scotland, support Scotland – club rivalry is irrelevant.

  • What do you expect when he was booed onto the pitch by Scotland “fans” , sad to see the”author”of this “artiicle” jump on that bandwagon and the other muppets in the tweetospere

  • i apreciate your honesty and willingness to correct a mistake John , Scotland ” fans” cant expect him to run through brick walls for them while they tolerate or join in with the abuse he recieved when entering the field of play , but if honesty prevailed here it would be admitted that this “critisim” stems from people who dont like the club he plays for and has nothing to do with him personally or indeed his performances in a Scotland shirt.

    • If I’m not aware of something I can’t type it and there are lots I’m not aware of! I’ll wish you good day Sir and I don’t disagree with the remainder of your post.
