Rangers fans are drooling over the performance of summer signing Jordan Jones, as he tortured the Hibs defence during Sunday’s 6-1 win.
Supporters at Ibrox yesterday were treated to a goal-fest as the Gers pummeled Paul Heckinbottom’s Hibs.
A Jermain Defoe hat-trick, followed up by a double from Alfredo Morelos and a late Sheyi Ojo strike, ensured the supporters went home ecstatic.
It was the second time already this campaign that Steven Gerrard’s men have hit a side for six at Ibrox, battering St. Joseph’s 6-0 in the Europa League qualifiers last month.
Despite the goal-laden afternoon for the Light Blues’ strikers though, it was the display of Jones that got fans talking after the demolition.
Brought in from Kilmarnock this summer, it was the Northern Irishman’s first real standout display for his new side and supporters are making sure this doesn’t get lost amongst all the goals.
Jones didn’t just get the fans’ approval either, with Football Scotland describing the way he tormented Hibs full-back Steven Whittaker as “a cat toying with a mouse. That. But more cruel.”
And judging from the Twitter reactions down below, the supporters agree with that statement too…

Hope Jordan Jones can be our new Sone Aluko. Many fans including myself i must admit werent to fussed if we signed him or not. Its early doors but what a start hes had and he just needs to look at Aluko and how we won everyone over and became a big player for us.

Was excellent today. Very direct, not scared to attack and fully deserved his ovation when he went off.
