Former Rangers boss Mark Warburton is eyeing up a swoop for Ibrox winger Jordan Jones, according to a report.

TeamTalk reports that Warburton has joined the pack of Championship clubs chasing Jones signature after it was reported that the Northern Irish international would be allowed to leave Rangers.

Jones only moved to Ibrox last summer but has struggled to force his way into the side after a knee injury sustained in the opening Old Firm clash of last season.

The Daily Record reported last week that Jones would be allowed to move on after failing to impress Steven Gerrard with Stoke, Blackburn, QPR and Barnsley all reportedly keen.

 

Gerrard rubbished the claims in his pre-match press conference before the win over Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Saturday but the limited minutes Jones has had since the return to football leaves a question over his future.

With the likes of Ryan Kent and Jamie Murphy both vying for the same spot in Gerrard’s starting XI, it’s difficult to see how Jones fits into the side without there being a serious injury epidemic at the club.

While we’ll never know for certain, it isn’t hard to think that Jones injury and subsequent red card in last season’s first Old Firm was the beginning of the end of his time as a Rangers player.
