Alan Hutton has tipped Rangers winger Jordan Jones to play a big part for Steven Gerrard after returning to action over the winter break.

The former Gers defender and boyhood fan at Ibrox, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, says that the 25-year-old has got a lot to offer after being sidelined for much of the season.

Jones injured himself with a tackle on Mortiz Bauer in the first Old Firm clash of the campaign, meaning he has not featured for the Light Blues since the start of September.

With just five starts to his name since joining from Kilmarnock, Hutton says that he expects Jones to make a real impact after watching him in the club’s friendly against Lokomotiv Tashkent in Dubai.

“I definitely think he can play a part, he always used to give Rangers a tough time,” Hutton told Football Insider.

“I think he’ll be looking to get that form back, it’s been a little bit sticky for him obviously with injury, a little bit up and down but I think that’s just excitement being at the club that he loves.

“I think now after everything, he can settle down and focus on his football. He gives you great quality out on the wing, he can take people on, people get excited watching him so I think he could definitely be a big figure going forward.”

Jones has played just four times in the Premiership for Rangers since his move across Scotland, the majority of his appearances coming the the Europa League qualifiers.

He has a total of 100 top-flight appearances under his belt, with 11 goals and 16 assists to his name.
