Steven Gerrard will head into January knowing full well that his side desperately needs more creativity and goals, so must sign Kilmarnock winger Jordan Jones.
After a blistering start to the season, the Gers are finding it more and more difficult to pick up results as teams now look to sit in deep.
Even though Gerrard left the game pleased with how his side played, Rangers had to settle for a 0-0 draw at Hibernian on Wednesday after the Ibrox outfit could not find the killer chance.
The points were also shared when the Light Blues could not break down 10-man Dundee in a 1-1 draw earlier in the month.
A possible player to solve the former Liverpool leader’s dilemmas is Kilmarnock winger Jones.
The 24-year-old was subject to interest from Rangers in January, but the Teddy Bears could not complete a deal when their £350,000 offer was deemed “nowhere near acceptable”.
Now, however, a cut-price sale may be on offer, as Jones will otherwise be available for free on a pre-contract agreement ahead of his current deal expiring next summer.

If Jones were to move to Ibrox, at least one man would be over the moon, and that is Rangers’ captain James Tavernier.
The 27-year-old has faced Kilmarnock’s winger on multiple occasions and been run ragged by the 24-year-old from Middlesbrough.
The Kilmarnock winger’s former boss, Lee McCulloch, also reckons Jones would be the perfect player to keep Rangers in the mix over the second half of the season.
Speaking to the Daily Record, the 40-year-old said: “He’d be the one who could unlock defences with teams now sitting in against Rangers.
“When Rangers struggled in the draw against Dundee then that’s the type of situation where you need a bit of magic Jordan could provide.
“He’s given James Tavernier a few torrid times and even Mikael Lustig, Jack Hendry or whoever has been Celtic’s right-back. There isn’t a right-back who could handle Jordan when he’s on his game.”
