Pedro Caixinha suggests whether Rangers plan to appeal Ryan Jack's red card

Glasgow Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack was sent off during the Gers' clash with Hibernian at Ibrox.

Pedro Caixinha has confirmed to Rangers' official website that the Gers plan to appeal the red card shown to Ryan Jack during their Scottish Premiership defeat to Hibernian on Saturday.

The Light Blues were level at 1-1 with Neil Lennon's side just under 10 minutes before the break when a clash in the middle of the park led to many of the players on the pitch getting involved in an altercation.

But it was Jack who was shown the red card, and it appeared to prove costly as Hibs quickly took the lead and were able to take advantage of having an additional man on the pitch as they extended that advantage 20 minutes into the second-half, which meant that James Tavernier's late goal simply proved to be a consolation.

And Caixinha confirmed after the game that the club will be appealing the dismissal - suggesting that the referee will know upon watching the incident again that he made a mistake.

“We are going to appeal it, and we will show the images. I invite the referee to watch it, and to be honest, normally when someone commits a mistake, at least to my principles, I would recognise it,” he told the club's official website.

While winning an appeal will be beneficial if it means that Jack does not serve a full suspension, it would surely make the defeat to Hibs all the more difficult to accept.

Had Jack stayed on the pitch, there may well have been a completely different outcome - and, while being told that he should not have been sent off by the governing body will be the best result they can hope for now, winning the appeal may leave them just as frustrated as they could certainly argue that the game changed because of the red card.
