Rangers Fans Are Buzzing to Hear Ryan Jack’s Red Card v Kilmarnock Has Been Overturned

Rangers Fans Are Buzzing to Hear Ryan Jack’s Red Card v Kilmarnock Has Been Overturned

The SFA have confirmed that the red card shown to Ryan Jack during Rangers’ draw with Kilmarnock has been rescinded.

And as you would probably expect… Rangers supporters are over the moon with the news.

Jack was shown an initial yellow card following an altercation with Killie defender Kirk Broadfoot, after Rangers won a penalty at Ibrox.

However, before the spot kick was taken and eventually missed by Daniel Candeias, referee Alan Muir upgraded the booking to a straight red after consulting with the fourth official.

Rangers appealed against the decision and the SFA’s disciplinary tribunal have now overturned the call:

 

The SFA’s decision means Jack, who was recently called up to Malky Mackay’s Scotland squad, will be available for Rangers’ next match against Partick Thistle on Saturday afternoon, much to delight of the club’s fans:

 

While Gers fans will surely feel more at peace with Jack marshalling their midfield, his sending off undoubtedly affected the result against Kilmarnock, which may have ended up costing Pedro Caixinha his job.

Have the SFA made the right call here?
