Glasgow Rangers still have a lot of work to do when the winter transfer window opens. Steven Gerrard’s side sit at the top of the Scottish Premiership, although they may have to make a few adjustments if they are to regain the title, amid transfer interest in Rangers duo Alfredo Morelos and Glen Kamara.
However, it’s not just bringing in players the Gers need to think about, it’s getting rid of some fringe players as well.
According to Football Insider, Rangers will try to sell Jordan Jones when the transfer market re-opens in January.
Jones, 26, has been suspended by the Light Blues after being fined for attending a house party last weekend along with his teammate George Edmundson.
It’s claimed that the club intend to offload the 9-cap Northern Ireland international in the transfer window in a few months’ time.
The Gers have done a pretty good job when it comes to shifting the deadwood in recent years with the likes of Wes Foderingham, Jon Flanagan and Jason Holt all leaving the club in the summer.
But they must be ruthless in this instance as they must set an example not only for the rest of the squad but to the general public as well.
This simply isn’t the case of a single incident which spells the end of his career at the club. If anything, it’s the latest in a list of errors he has made on-and-off the pitch during his time at Ibrox.
The £4m-rated winger has previously been warned by Gerrard that he must show more on the training pitch, whilst his attitude was recently criticised by the Liverpool legend, and he was told he could leave the club in the summer.
He told Rangers TV, as quoted by The Daily Record: “They’ve made a bad error of judgement and I think they’ll regret it for quite some time. It’s a building process for both players now moving forward.”
Given Gerrard’s words, it appears Jones will have a lot of work to do to work his back into the first-team setup after he has served his suspension, but they should just get rid of him to save themselves the trouble before he further damages the club’s reputation.
In any case, there is fierce competition for places on the right wing, as the likes of Ianis Hagi, Brandon Barker, Joe Aribo and even Cedric Itten have all been utilised on the right-hand side.
