Rangers' Jordan Jones 'apologised' to Celtic defender after Old Firm red card

Rangers winger Jordan Jones apologised to Celtic defender Moritz Bauer after the tackle that left Jones injured and on the receiving end of a red card in Sunday’s Old Firm clash – according to Kilmarnock’s Gary Dicker.

Dicker was a team-mate of Jones at Killie for the Northern Irishman’s entire time at Rugby Park and insists that the Rangers star will “learn from it.”

Jones reportedly faces a month on the sidelines injured and Dicker admitted that the winger is “pretty down” after his dismissal and injury.


“He spoke the right-back at Celtic and apologised,” Dicker said, as quoted by BBC Scotland.

“I spoke to him today to see how he was. It can be a lonely place. He was pretty down, which is natural.

“It’s frustration. I don’t think he was doing it to get a round of applause or hurt someone. It can mess with your emotions, it’s a big occasion, but he’ll learn from it.”

Manager Steven Gerrard was furious with Jones after the 2-0 defeat, accusing him of trying to “appease” fans by launching into a reckless challenge.

The 24-year-old was making his Old Firm debut before being sent off and will also miss Northern Ireland’s upcoming games with Luxembourg and Germany.

The arrival of Ryan Kent on deadline day also makes things harder for Jones when he does recover from injury and the timing of his moment of madness couldn’t have been worse.
