Rangers suffer setback in pursuit of Jordan Jones

Rangers suffer setback in pursuit of Jordan Jones

Rangers have been one of the form teams in the Scottish Premiership this season, but they now find themselves behind Celtic in the race. 

The Bluenoses have defied expectations under Steven Gerrard in the current campaign, but they could do with improving slightly on the European stage.

However, the Glasgow club received a big setback on the transfer front recently, as according to The Sunday People (09/12; page 52) (via HITC), Burnley are preparing a £1 million bid for Jordan Jones in January.

Interestingly, Rangers are still keen on signing Jordan Jones, but they may have to spend a seven-figure fee if they hope to get a deal done, with English Premiership side Burnley preparing a £1 million bid.

Jones has established himself as one of the standout performers in the Scottish Premiership this season, as well as enjoying a successful time of things on the international stage with Northern Ireland.

The Bluenoses could do with bringing in another winger to provide more quality in wide areas, as the likes of Ryan Kent, Daniel Candeias and Eros Grezda have struggled to contribute on a regular basis.

THE VERDICT:

A big blow for Rangers in their pursuit of the attacker.

Jordan Jones already has five international caps to his name. He has impressed on the international stage with Northern Ireland and in the Scottish Premiership, with four assists to his name at this moment in time.

But, with Burnley thought to be preparing a bid for the winger in January, Rangers may not want to stump up the cash for the Kilmarnock star, which could see them lose out.
