Rangers have added fringe star Jordan Jones to their Europa League squad despite reports linking him with up to six Championship clubs.

Jones has been linked with a move to the likes of QPR, Preston, Middlesbrough, Blackburn, Barnsley and Stoke with chances limited at Ibrox [TEAMtalk].

The Northern Irish international has found himself on the fringes at Ibrox but with spaces available in the squad Jones will be boosted by his inclusion for Thursday’s game with Leverkusen.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the second leg of Rangers’ Europa League tie with Leverkusen has been moved forward almost four months.

The tournament is set to be concluded via a mini-tournament one-off game route which will see the trophy handed out towards the end of August.

However, as this concerns last season’s competition Rangers will not be able to register players who they’ve signed in the summer.

This means Calvin Bassey, Jon McLaughlin, Leon Balogun and now Kemar Roofe will not be available to play.

However, Wes Foderingham, Matt Polster, Sheyi Ojo, Andy Halliday and Florian Kamberi have all left since the first leg.

Rangers can only add three players as per UEFA rules and have opted to include Andy Firth as backup goalkeeper, defender Filip Helander and of course Jordan Jones.
