In Focus: Jones can add cost effective depth to Rangers’ left flank

As reported by The Sunday Post, Rangers are interested in signing Kilmarnock winger Jordan Jones this January.

What’s the story?

Ever since Barrie McKay departed the club earlier this year, the left wing position has been a problem one for Rangers, with nobody really able to step up and add the natural width that they need.

It seems though that the club are looking to solve the problem and have earmarked a Scottish Premiership talent as the potential solution.

The Sunday Post report that Rangers are interested in signing Jordan Jones, competing with the likes of Burnley and Norwich City for his signature.

The 23-year-old, who is rated as worth around £200,000 by Transfermarkt, could be a cost effective and viable option to provide competition in the wide areas after impressing for Kilmarnock over the last year.

Emerging talent

Jones may not quite be the finished article yet, but he’s certainly showing rapid improvement at Rugby Park since joining from Middlesbrough last summer.

In a struggling side, he’s been one of their main creative outlets, producing 11 assists in his time at the club so far.

It’s form that prompted Michael O’Neill to call him up for recent World Cup Qualifiers and he made his international debut in the crucial play-off against Switzerland.

If Rangers can get the business done for him January they could be securing a real emerging talent and one who can improve further surrounded by better players at Ibrox.
