Michael O'Neill thinks international break will help Rangers-bound star

Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill believes that getting away from the “difficult situation” surrounding his move from Kilmarnock to Rangers helped Jordan Jones put in an impressive performance in the 2-0 win over Estonia.
Jones was axed by Killie boss Steve Clarke for the recent draw with Rangers at Ibrox and O’Neill admits that he’ll need to “adapt his game a bit” to adjust fully to international football.

O’Neill thinks Jones has enjoyed being away – albeit only for a week or so – and his performance reflected that.
“Jordan was very positive,” O’Neill said, as quoted by the Sunday Post.
“He’ll have to adapt his game a bit from what he does with his club, but he’s moving to a big club in the summer and it’s maybe been a difficult situation to deal with.

“At the moment I think he’s enjoyed being away and that showed in his performance on Thursday night.”
The winger created Niall McGinn’s opener in the 2-0 win and will be hoping to have a similar impact tonight when Northern Ireland face Belarus.

With six caps to his name, Jones is only just getting started at international level but moving to Ibrox should help him cement his place for his country.
If his performance against Estonia is anything to go by, he could well be a fixture in the side for years to come.
