Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has a fully-fit squad to choose from ahead of Sunday’s trip to Hamilton – but predicts that Jordan Jones is still “10 days” away from being up to speed.
Gerrard also confirmed that the Light Blues are still waiting on Alfredo Morelos to return from the USA after netting his first goal for Colombia against Peru in Miami.
After seeing a host of players away with their national teams, Gerrard’s squad have a clean bill of health, with the Gers boss “delighted” to have Jones back with the rest of the group.
“Everyone has returned fine and we have a fully fit squad, we are just waiting on Alfredo to return. Jordan Jones is also back fit,” Gerrard said, as quoted by Rangers’ official Twitter account.
“Jordan Jones is back in full training, I am delighted to have him back. I predict he will be available for selection in 10 days by the time he gets up to speed.”
The Northern Irishman has been out of action since getting injured in the Old Firm defeat Celtic earlier in the season, getting sent off in the process.
With Jones close to a return, it offers a different option on the flanks for Rangers and could see them line up with Jones and Ryan Kent in the same XI.
Ten days would likely see him in contention to face Hearts at Ibrox on December 1st, giving him two games to sharpen up before the League Cup final.
