Rangers

Gers winger set for month on sidelines

4th September 2019, 16:51 by Bobbie Jackson

Rangers winger Jordan Jones will reportedly be sidelined for a month after injuring himself in Sunday's Old Firm Derby.

The 24-year-old joined the Ibrox outfit over the summer after some impressive displays during a three-year stint with Premiership rivals Kilmarnock.

He has featured in all four of their league outings this season, starting twice, but requires a period of recovery after sustaining an injury in the loss to Celtic.

Jones came off the bench on 70 minutes when the game was finely poised with Celtic leading 1-0, however, he was unable to rescue the game as they went down 2-0.

In a last act of desperation, he went flying into a challenge in stoppage time which left him worse for wear and also saw him sent off.

It was initially feared that he had ruptured his cruciate ligament but further assessment has shown the injury isn’t as bad as first expected.

Reports claim he should be available in around four weeks but Steven Gerrard, who was unhappy at his actions in the closing stages, admitted after the game he will have to fight to force his way back into contention.

Gerrard said: “I think Jordan has been trying to appease the fans but that’s not how you appease Rangers fans.

“You create goals and you score goals if you’re a wide man. That’s how you get fans on your side, not kicking people when the ball is 10 yards away. He deserves the red card and he deserves his ban and he’s got everything to do now to get back in my team.”
