Ryan Jack had a rather forgettable start to his international career as the 25-year-old made his debut for Scotland in a 1-0 defeat to Netherlands last night.
Unfortunately for Ryan, the defeat wouldn’t be the only stinging memory from his debut as the poor lad was booed and abused by his own national team fans for a large chunk of the match.
The friendly between the two sides was being played at Pittodrie where Ryan emerged from the club academy and played for 7 long professional seasons as an Aberdeen player before making a move to Rangers this summer.
In spite of being an international match, the Dons fanatics wasted no chance of dispensing their hostility towards their former player as Ryan’s every touch in the first 15 minutes of the match was jeered by a small portion of the Pittodrie crowd.
Rangers fans were absolutely gutted by this disreputable act showcased by the other segment of fans and expressed their displeasure on the social media.
Check out the video of the abuse towards Ryan Jack and the reactions from the fans below –

I would never dream of booing a Celtic player when he’s wearing the Scotland jersey. I might not like him but I would appreciate he is representing his and my country. Tartan army are a red neck booing Ryan jack!

Ryan Jack getting booed straight away and people ask why Rangers fans don't want anything to do with the national team and the rid necks who follow them. Hope he scores tonight.

25 year old Ryan Jack, born in Aberdeen, is making his debut for Scotland tonight. A very proud moment for himself and his family.
He touches the ball 3 times in the first 30 seconds and is booed by his own fans on all 3 occasions.
Only in Scotland. 🙄
