RANGERS midfielder Ryan Jack has set his sights on a return to action next season as he embarks on the road to recovery.

The 29-year-old underwent a successful operation on Wednesday to cure a long-standing issue that has kept him out of action since the win over Dundee United in February.

Boss Steven Gerrard revealed last month that Jack would miss the European Championships this summer as he was ruled out for the rest of the domestic campaign.

The loss of Jack is a huge blow to national manager Steve Clarke as he prepares Scotland for their Euros clashes with England, Croatia and the Czech Republic this summer.

And Jack has now provided an update to supporters as he looks to return to action and be part of Gerrard's squad next term.

Writing on his Instagram page, Jack said: "Morning Teddy’s - just letting everyone know I had a successful operation yesterday morning and I’m now on the road to recovery.

"Can’t wait to be back for the start of next season and getting back doing what I love.

"Thanks to everyone for the messages it’s much appreciated. All focus now is on 56! 👀😉 let’s go 💙."

Jack scored twice - against Ross County and Kilmarnock - in 31 appearances for club and country this term but endured a frustrating campaign with injuries.

He would miss the final games of the Premiership title race as Gerrard's side clinched their historic 55th title and was also absent as Rangers lost to Slavia Prague and St Johnstone in the Europa League and Scottish Cup respectively.

But the former Aberdeen captain will get his hands on the Premiership silverware when Rangers host the Dons later this month and captain James Tavernier is presented with the trophy.

Rangers have just two fixtures - away to Livingston and that visit of Aberdeen - to play this term as they bid for an unbeaten Premiership campaign.
