It’s fair to say Jordan Jones isn’t the most popular player at Rangers right now.
Plenty were delighted to see the winger score his first goal for the club at Motherwell in September, but his decision to attend a party alongside George Edmundson early last month landed him in hot water.
Both players were initially suspended by the club for the breach of regulations and are now serving substantial SFA bans.
Some fans went as far as suggesting that Rangers should terminate their contracts for putting their teammates at risk.
However, they are back training with the first-team squad and with their bans ending later this month, Steven Gerrard fully intends on using them again.
Jones has a lot of making up to do, but a classy gesture towards a supporter earlier this week has earned him praise.
@ArgyllWarrior had tweeted on Thursday asking for help with sourcing a cheap Rangers shirt for his son and the post received plenty of attention.
On Friday morning, he took to the platform again to explain that he had deleted the initial post after feeling “a bit embarrassed” but wanted to thank both Rangers and Celtic fans for the kindness they had shown through their comments.
A few hours later, the fan issued another update, revealing that an unnamed Gers first-team player had offered to send him a signed shirt in time for Christmas.
Later in the day, he identified Jones as that player.
The update prompted a flood of comments from fellow supporters praising the Rangers winger for his generosity.
Here’s a selection of reactions:
These threads have been brilliant seeing people want to help out, great that JJ has seen it and done so too. Wishing you and your boy a very merry Christmas 🤶

Jones will become available again for the Gers’ trip to St Mirren on 30 December and he’ll be hoping to make a big impact when given the opportunity.
