RYAN JACK believes Rangers will be ready for a big campaign next season after ending 2018/19 at Rugby Park this afternoon.

A later Kilmarnock penalty saw the Light Blues end their winning run, with a 2-1 defeat closing out a 60 match season for Steven Gerrard’s men.

However Jack is confident the Gers can return for the new campaign refreshed and ready to go in their quest for silverware.

He told RangersTV: “It’s never nice to lose a game and it’s going to stick with us for the next few days and going in to the summer break that we never got that seventh win.

“We’ve been on an excellent run and we’ve been excellent since the split fixtures came round and we’ve shown real consistency so it was a tough one today.

“Going in to the summer we’ll have a good break and come back flying next season.

“Personally it’s been a good season after last season and the season I had with injury and suspension, so for me personally it’s been excellent.

“It would have been nice to have a trophy at the end of it but it wasn’t to be so next year we’ll get down to business, work hard and see what we can do next year.”

Jack has enjoyed his role as a regular member of Gerrard’s midfield, and recognises the demands that face anyone pulling on the blue shirt, and those will return soon, after a short summer break.

He added: “At a club like this it doesn’t matter if it’s the last game of the season or the first game of the season, the demands are always there.

“You saw the fans in great numbers again were there to support us and it’s a pity we didn’t get over the line today.

“We had a great European run last year and a great pre-season trip and the team gelled really quickly and really well so I’m sure the staff will be looking for more of the same next season,

“We need to come back and start well and to hit the ground running. These European games come thick and fast.

“As you saw from the start of this season there is no room for error or complacency, we need to get back, get fit and hit the ground running.”
