Rangers spent much of January trying to bring Kilmarnock winger Jordan Jones to Ibrox earlier in the season and as Steven Gerrard rebuilds his squad, he should steer clear of a renewed bid for the 23-year-old.

The Light Blues made an aborted attempt to sign Jones in January but were priced out by Kilmarnock’s demands and the Rugby Park side aren’t likely to be happy to sell this time around.

With the likes of Daniel Candeias, Jamie Murphy and Scott Arfield in the squad already and talented youngsters like Serge Atakayi and Glenn Middleton on the fringes of the side, Jones would be an unnecessary addition.

Jones did well for Kilmarnock last season as Steve Clarke’s side defied to critics to surge up the table but the 23-year-old never looked anything more than a bog-average Scottish Premiership-level winger.

The Gers have just – finally – managed to get rid of their very own bog-average Premiership winger in Michael O’Halloran so there’s absolutely no need to bring in another.

Jones attracted interest from England last season after impressing for Killie and the Gers should be more than happy to see him head south of the border this summer if there is any repeat.

If Gerrard is serious about building a side capable of challenging for the title then signing Jones isn’t exactly the way to convince people.
