Rangers fans rave about Jordan Jones after Northern Ireland assist

Jordan Jones was at it again last night in a Northern Ireland shirt.
On Saturday, after coming on as a substitute, it was his moment of magic which set up Josh Magennis’ winner away in Estonia.

Just three days later, he was named in the starting line-up for another must-win away tie. This time Michael O’Neill’s men were taking on a stubborn Belarus side in Borisov.

As usual, he looked to take on defenders throughout, providing his country’s main attacking outlet down the left.
However, despite his efforts, it looked as though Belarus would hold firm.
That was, until the 86th minute. Jones picked up the ball near the corner flag, under close scrutiny from several home defenders. He nutmegged one with a cute pass to Paddy McNair, who then stole the headlines.

McNair dropped the shoulder, skipped inside and fired low and hard into the far corner sending the players, coaching staff and travelling supporters into wild celebrations.

Understandably, then, his performances have plenty of Rangers fans excited.
He’s due to report for pre-season at Auchenhowie next week and when the season starts, many hope he’ll be just as influential for his new club as for his country.
Here’s a selection of reactions to his joyous Twitter post following the win:
