As Rangers fought to a draw against Aberdeen, provide superior delivery and the negative seemed to some pacey option to go by the Dons. Steven Gerrard called upon the out-of-form Sheyi Ojo to do this – much to the dismay of supporters – before eventually introducing new signings Ianis Hagi and Florian Kamberi. It did not work, and the line for some time stumbled across, but does the omission of one option from the bench this weekend imply it’s all but drapes for the player in question?
Jordan Jones does provide that directness and sharp delivery which Rangers definitely lacked against Aberdeen however he was not included on the seat of Gerrard. Given Jones’ Scottish Premiership experience along with the fact that he was signed to provide only that, you like to think we would have this infamous impact player on the bench as an option. He showed he can make a difference for a substitute against Legia Warsaw, crossing for Alfredo Morelos’ winner against the Poles. But his Ibrox career has postponed because that red card from Celtic and after the injury, he’s struggled to get back in the team since. Linked with a move to the likes of Middlesbrough and Stoke City during the transfer window, Jones didn’t get a loan deal pushed through in time for the January sales coming to a conclusion. The participant is readily available for inclusion in squads and still at the club. But despite a cameo against Ross County in the week, Jones now appears to be down the pecking order at Ibrox. The simple fact that the likes of Brandon Barker and Sheyi Ojo were contained on the bench before Jones drops a sign that his time at Rangers may well be coming to end in May.
