Kilmarnock winger, Jordan Jones, signed a pre-contract agreement with Rangers, in January.

The deal means that he will see out the rest of the season at Rugby Park, before becoming a Ger in the summer.

Glen Kamara penned a similar pre-contract deal at the same time as Jones. However, on transfer deadline day, he secured an immediate switch to Ibrox.

Since then, he’s become a bit of a fan favourite.

That was an approach the Gers apparently didn’t attempt with Jones.

Killie wanted to keep their man for as long as they could and Rangers were happy to let him see out his deal there.

Jones has already struck one hammer blow

Unfortunately, that looked like a costly decision before January was even out.

During the first SPL match back after the winter break, he scored the winner as the meeting finished 2-1 in Ayrshire.

 

At that time, the Northern Ireland international was in the middle of a purple patch.

Since then, though, his form has dropped off. He hasn’t scored in his last six club matches.

The powers that be at Rangers will be praying that run is extended come Saturday.

After two poor results in a row, the knives will really be out if Gerrard’s men fail to secure all three points at Ibrox.

We know Jones is capable of something special, but lets hope he saves all that for next season.

If he pops up with another decisive goal, Rangers will be rueing not buying him outright.
