Jordan Jones may have already played his final game for Glasgow Rangers, having been blasted by Steven Gerrard for bringing the club into disrepute after breaking COVID regulations.
What’s the story?
According to The Daily Record, Jones has been hit with a notice of complaint by the Scottish soccer Association, otherwise known as the SFA, along with his teammate George Edmundson after the pair were cautioned by police for attending a house party on Sunday.
It’s claimed that the Rangers duo will face a disciplinary hearing in two weeks’ time, whilst they have both been suspended by the Ibrox outfit and forced to self-isolate for two weeks.
The Gers will also investigate the incident, which means the pair could face further punishment, and Gerrard did not mince his words.
He told Rangers TV, as quoted by The Daily Record, that he is “really disappointed. Everyone at the soccer club is really disappointed with the actions of the two players.
“It was important the club took decisive action. They were very quick to do that which was pleasing to see.
“The players know they let themselves down and their families, they’ve also badly let their team-mates down and the supporters of the club.”
The 9-cap Northern Ireland international has already lost his place in the squad for the Euro 2020 play-off with Slovakia later this month as a result. He last appeared as a substitute against Livingston in the Scottish Premiership last month, replacing Ianis Hagi in the closing stages of the game.
Look, we’ll be the first person to put our hands up and freely admit that we’ve felt Jones has deserved a chance in the starting line-up. We even wrote a piece the other month suggesting that he should start instead of Hagi against Celtic in the first Old Firm derby of the season, and now he’s only gone and done this. What a way to undo all of his hard work.
Jones hasn’t really fully established himself in the first-team fold with Rangers, as he failed to find the back of the net or provide a single assist in seven games in the Scottish Premiership last term, via Transfermarkt.
For someone who has only made four appearances in all competitions this season so far, with his outings totalling 170 minutes in total, attracting negative press of any kind is surely the final straw.
Former Rangers forward Kris Boyd believes the 26-year-old’s career at the club is over, claiming he made a ‘brainless’ decision to attend the house party in the first place.
If Jones is sold in the winter transfer window, as the former free agent was heavily linked with an exit in the summer, his Ibrox record will bear for some pretty grim reading, having scored just once and supplied two assists in 19 games so far.
Gerrard now needs to start looking at the bigger picture, though, as Jones has found himself below both Hagi and Brandon Barker at the bottom of the pecking order this season so far. And that’s without even mentioning Cedric Itten, who started on the right wing against Kilmarnock at the weekend. Get him gone, Gers.
