Fringe player Jordan Jones could feature for Rangers against Hibernian on Sunday after being spotted in full training on Friday [Rangers.co.uk].

The 25-year-old is yet to receive a minute of playing time this season and been linked with a move away from Ibrox for several months.

However, Middlesbrough recently appeared to distance themselves from a move [Teeside Gazette] and while the Scottish Sun reports that several other Championship clubs are interested, a bid has yet to land.

As a result, with the player back fit following a knock which forced him to pull out of Nations League action for Northern Ireland earlier this month, he is available for selection against Hibernian.

The training gallery shared by the club on Friday evening showed the winger playing a full part in the session ahead of the weekend fixture, with injuries to other players improving his chances.

 

Joe Aribo and Brandon Barker are currently out with ankle and hamstring problems respectively, while, despite Gerrard’s encouraging update [RangersTV], it’s hard to see Kemar Roofe being 100% fit after going off with tightness in his calf against Lincoln Red Imps on Thursday night.

The manager is most likely to opt for an attacking quartet of Ryan Kent, Ianis Hagi, Cedric Itten and Alfredo Morelos, but, as he will likely be the only out-and-out winger on the bench, Jones surely has a good chance of being introduced as a substitute.

The ex-Killie star has produced some of his best international performances for Northern Ireland as an impact sub and although he hasn’t achieved much since joining the Gers last summer, his pace and experience of playing at this level ensure he’s still a decent option for the manager, should he need to change the game.
