Rangers-bound winger Jordan Jones has tipped Kilmarnock team-mate Greg Taylor for a Scotland cap after their club boss Steve Clarke was named as the new national team boss.
Clarke’s appointment was confirmed earlier today and Jones, after wishing his now-former boss luck on Twitter, sent a message to left-back Taylor.

 


Taylor has had a fantastic season for Kilmarnock as they Ayrshire side finished in their highest league position since 1966.
After two seasons of record-breaking success at Rugby Park, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Taylor given a chance to impress at international level.

Jones will move to Ibrox after penning a pre-contract in January with Glen Kamara – who would move to Ibrox later that month – and missed the 2-1 win over his new side yesterday.

The 24-year-old made 112 appearances during his time in Ayrshire, scoring 11 times and contributing 22 assists, and has been a key player in the success under Clarke.
Clarke’s first game as Scotland boss will be the Euro 202 qualifier against Cyprus next month.
