Jackson, a defender, initially joined Rangers straight from Ruthrieston School in 1962. He had a spell with Aberdeen side Sunnybank Athletic before rejoining the Light Blues in 1963. He made a total of 506 appearances for Rangers between 1963 and 1982 and during his time at Ibrox won 3 League championships, 3 Scottish Cups and 5 League Cups. Perhaps the biggest disappointment during his career came in 1972 when he missed out on Rangers' 3-2 European Cup Winners' Cup final win against Moscow Dynamo having failed a fitness test prior to the game.
After leaving Rangers Jackson spent a month with Morton then the rest of the 1982-83 season with Partick Thistle. He retired in the summer of 1983 and became a partner in an East Kilbride printing venture.
