RANGERS midfielder Ryan Jack is more determined than ever to maintain his progression at Ibrox.

The 28-year-old enjoyed an excellent campaign last season under Steven Gerrard and quickly became one of the first names on his manager's team sheet.

But the former Aberdeen man is refusing to rest on his laurels - and hopes that he will continue to make strides on the park.

Speaking to Rangers TV, he said: "I always look to improve in every way and get better, on and off the pitch - this year will be no different.

"I go into every year trying to be better than I was the season before.

"This is a great club to be at and play for. I want to give it my all when you have this opportunity.

"I know how lucky I am as you don’t always get the opportunity to play for a club like this. I am just trying to make the most of it and hopefully this year can be a big season for us."

Playing in European competition and testing himself against some of the continent's best footballers has significantly developed Jack's game, he says, and the midfielder is hopeful that another eye-catching run of form will lead to further international recognition.

"Playing in Europe has been massive for me," he added. "You come away from the domestic league and you test yourself against top opposition.

"The Europa League has been great and I am sure all the players would say they have benefitted from the European runs. Hopefully, next year we can have another good run and have a successful season in general.

"With that and the experience of playing in Europe, that will only help me going into the international set-up.

"I have been fortunate to have a taste of it in the last few games and going forward, if my form is good enough, I hope to be a part of it."
