Steven Gerrard has revealed that Ryan Jack is a doubt for Rangers' Europa League clash against Benfica.

Bongani Zungu will also miss the match.

Speaking in his press conference this morning, Gerrard said: "Ryan Jack is a doubt, we won't know until later today if available. Zungu will also be missing and we hope to have him back in a week.

"The support from the board has been fantastic since the first day I arrived. This team is in much better shape than when we arrived and the team is now full of valuable assets.

"Europe is a great challenge for the players and for the club financially, but it also gives our fantastic support the opportunity to travel around Europe and support us in tremendous numbers.

"The main focus is always on us, our preparation is mainly focused on Rangers but of course we do also prepare for the potential starting XI we may face.

"I can feel a determination in the group but I have seen that since the first day of pre-season. We need to try and use the experience from the last match against Benfica going into this 90 minutes. No matter the starting XI we face, we know this will be a real challenge."
