Rangers winger linked to English trio weeks after social media outburst

Rangers winger Jordan Jones has been linked to a trio of English Championship clubs by a report coming out of northern England.

The Northern Echo are reporting that Stoke and Blackburn are interested in the Northern Irish international, whilst Middlesbrough hope his Redcar roots can convince him to return to the Riverside.

The report claims that Jones – who is contracted to Ibrox until 2023 – would cost clubs £500k as Rangers look to recoup a small fee for the player.

According to the in-depth report, Teessiders boss Neil Warnock is hoping that Jones’ previous spell in the northeast will convince him to join the Championship side.

Stoke boss Michael O’Neill has also previously managed the player with Northern Ireland and the Britannia could provide an interesting option for the winger.

The reports also come a few weeks after Jones deleted a frustrated Instagram post which cryptically pointed to his lack of game-time at the club.

Jones quoted Bayern Munich winger Serge Gnabry who was speaking out about his frustrating time at West Brom in a column with the Players’ Tribune.

Here’s what Jones quoted the talented winger as saying:

“I got a 15-minute run at the end of the Chelsea match, and then I wasn’t even in the squad after that.

“I sat in the stands for six months, doubting myself.”

Jones joined Rangers in 2018 on a four-year deal after his contract expired at Kilmarnock but he has struggled for game-time at Ibrox.

The Rangers winger was sent off in the first Old Firm match of last season, injuring himself in the process, and has seen game time limited ever since.
