Rangers: Derek Clark slams Aberdeen fans for booing Ryan Jack

Commentator and journalist Derek Clark has slammed opposition fans for booing Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack in their most recent game as he lined up against his former club.

Earlier this week, Michael Beale’s men claimed a 3-2 win in the most stunning fashion as they scored twice in injury time to steal all three points on the night.

Indeed, Rangers were trailing 2-1 to Aberdeen after Fashion Sakala’s opener was cancelled out by goals from Duk and Leighton Clarkson, but Scott Arfield scored a double in the final few moments to turn the game around.

However, it seems as though the home fans were not too pleased to welcome one of their ex-players back to Pittodrie and spent the night booing Jack – much to Clark’s chagrin.

He wrote on Twitter: “Always find the booing of Ryan Jack from Aberdeen fans cringingly pathetic.

“250 games is sterling service, his only crime being that his talent earned him a move to a bigger club.”

Do you think the boos for Ryan Jack are fair?





TIF Thoughts on Ryan Jack and Rangers…

As Clark makes clear, Jack played 250 times for Aberdeen before joining their Scottish Premiership rivals in the summer of 2017. Seeing as he left on a free transfer having come through the academy, you can understand why fans might have been upset at the time.

That was five years ago now and since then, Jack has played against his ex-team 15 times (via Transfermarkt), so you might have thought the anger may have faded somewhat – though he has won nine of those games, even scoring once.

And, of course, when it comes to being wronged, football supporters tend to have long memories, so it’s no great shock that the Aberdeen faithful still hold a grudge against their former man.
