Northern Irish winger Jordan Jones was spotted in the Rangers end on Sunday, after he uploaded a photo to his Instagram account.
The industrious wideman clearly has an affinity for the Light Blues and would’ve been just as gutted as anyone leaving the stadium.
But he is of course still a Kilmarnock player. Their fans didn’t seem best pleased.

Should Rangers return for Jones?
Rangers made an unsuccessful move for Jordan Jones last January. The bid, reportedly £350,000 rising to £500,000 was described as “easy to reject” by Killie manager Steve Clarke.
But afterwards Jones, 24, spoke about how the speculation had unsettled him at Rugby Park.
However, Rangers have yet to return with any move for the three times capped Norn Iron winger. Jones also hasn’t been as effective in front of goal this season, despite Kilmarnock sitting second. He’s yet to score in 14 matches but remains a pivotal part of Killie’s play.
Is Jones an option Rangers should be considering? The pacey, creative winger has been a constant thorn in SPL defenders sides since he joined Killie from Middlesbrough in 2016. He also nabbed a goal against Celtic at Parkhead last season.
Rangers have multiple options in that area of the park but there definitely appears to be room for one more.
Especially considering Steven Gerrard’s recent comments demanding players step up in big matches.
Jordan Jones would provide pace, ability and a final product for Rangers. And by the looks of things he’d also play his heart out for the badge.
