Rangers are planning to sell Jordan Jones in January after the Covid-19 breach that spells the end of his career at the club, Football Insider understands.
The winger, 26, has been suspended by the Glasgow giants along with teammate George Edmundson and put into self-isolation for two weeks.
Ibrox sources have told Football Insider that Steven Gerrard and the club hierarchy are planning to offload Jones in the January window.
A move to an English Football League team is a genuine possibility for the Northern Ireland international, who is a product of the Middlesbrough academy.
Rangers don’t expect to get more than around £800,000 for a player who has struggled to make an impact since his free transfer from Kilmarnock in the summer of 2019.
Given his age and seniority, the Ibrox hierarchy were left fuming at his involvement in the household party last Sunday that led to a police caution.
Jones and Edmundson have also been hit with Scottish Football Association charges and they will go in front of a Hampden disciplinary hearing on 19 November.
Rangers fans have joined the widespread fury of pundits, observers and neutrals at the conduct of the senior pair, and the management team are believed to feel badly let down.
It remains to be seen if Edmundson will also, in time, be shown the Ibrox door.
But there is seemingly no way back for Jones now, irrespective of the punishment meted out by the SFA.
Rangers are also leading their own internal investigation that could add to a potential ban and fine.
