Rangers winger Jordan Jones should get another chance

Rangers look in a real spot of bother at the moment, with their European campaign the only thing that the supporters can cling onto.

The Gers are now 13 points behind leaders Celtic in the league after a huge dip since the winter break, despite having the upper hand in the title race back at the end of December after beating them at Parkhead.

Steven Gerrard’s side have also been dumped out of the Scottish Cup quarter-finals by Hearts, meaning their Europa League last 16 tie with Bayer Leverkusen is the only thing to be excited about.

A number of individuals at Ibrox have seen their form disappear so far in 2020 and manager Gerrard needs to intervene to spark a response.

 

The midweek defeat at home to Hamilton in the league has to be the final straw, so surely some fringe figures have to come into Gerrard’s thinking.

Jordan Jones has watched on from the stands while several teammates have been struggling, so surely he deserves some form of opportunity moving forward.

It would be unfair to throw the 25-year-old into a European tie or an Old Firm clash, but a cameo appearance at the weekend against Ross County should be looked at.

He’s been a fringe figure with just 13 appearances across all competitions this season since joining from Kilmarnock in the summer and hardly had a look-in since returning from a knee injury in December.

Jones could at least inject some pace and creativity to a side that have scored just one goal in their last three games across all competitions.

The Northern Ireland international is at his best on the wings and bring him back into the fold to try raise competition seems a smart idea.
