    Not Dances with Bears but an equally good source saying that Jordan Jones on the way to Ibrox, free agent in the summer. He's not sure if Killie will try and get something for him in January or Rangers will pre contract him. I'll try and find out more.

    Sounds like guess work but I wouldn’t be surprised if there was truth in it

    We went for Jones last January and he was gutted it didn't go through then.

    Honestly haven't seen enough of him to know how successful he'd be for us.

    Hasn't got anything right since Docherty and that's because he worked(?) with Greg's dad. File under pish and guesswork.

    We can take from that, that Jordan Jones won't be coming to Rangers.

    I think I’ve read a few times on here that Bill talks pish.

    Does this mean it's not happening...?

    Suppose if Kent's away back to Liverpool in the summer, we'll be looking for another winger. I'd be expecting better quality than Jordan Jones though.

    Not sure what he gives us that we don't already have.

    If we only sign one player in January, it has to be a centre mid.

    Great news if he saying this, means it wont happen.

    Jones is utter pish and were in big trouble if the manager thinks he is whats needed.

    This rumour has been doing the rounds for quite a while, It’s been spoke about at games & mentioned to myself on line before

    I included it in rumours blog a few weeks ago

    *** For further clarification see posts below

    No idea how true it is but point is this isn’t new story

    no chance we need a midfielder who can hit the target from 30 yards not another winger

    Another Michael o hallaran. Good running into space, awful up against 11 men behind the ball.

    Wouldn't cut it in 90% of our domestic games

    Story goes Jones has attended our recent European games as guest of club

    Him & Glenn Kamara of Dundee

    Both bosman targets & may look to do January deal if can sign them up

    Blogged it on Nov 17th


    As I said just a story but there it is anyway

    Not sure about this

    Would be risk free though as he'll cost buttons.

    He's not good enough for Rangers. Simple. Too many wingers as it is.

    Bill will get something right one of these days!

    He makes these predictions all the time and i've yet to see him get it right, not once.

    Really hope your wrong mate. Both are not as good as players we already have, we need far better than these 2.

    Not my story to be wrong tbf buddy, as I said that’s the story doing the rounds

    I didn’t even look into it but did stick it into the January rumour blog I done

    I like Jones in all honesty


    Will see what happens

    Would someone not have noticed that these two attended our recent European games? Im also fairly sure that it would be frowned upon inviting employees of other clubs to our games as guests, it would be viewed as tapping up.

    I Don't think he is what we need at all. He is very effective on the counter attack but I don't see him breaking down teams with everyone behind the ball

    I like him as a player but we have plenty of options on the wing especially when we have murphy to come back.

    Please no. He doesn't improve us.

    We have 4 decent wingers already. Albeit 2 injured with one returning really soon.

    I wouldn’t look too much into the Jordan jones thing other than him attending the game as a fan.

    At least he's not a lazy tarrier and actually wants to play for Rangers

    Most likely you are correct

    I’m merely offering it up as the story has been doing the rounds for several weeks

    I posted it as just that

    No idea if it’s true

    Bill Young's track record would suggest we're not signing Jones.

    I don't think Jones would do well with us, but if he is to be signed I hope I'm wrong.

    Kamara is a player I like, who has stalled a bit this season due to injury.

    They'd be decent squad players I guess as a minimum.

    From what I've seen from Jones he doesn't think things through and tries stupid stepovers to make himself look like Ronaldo

    There's a reason why Tavernier had the space to assist Morelos in all 3 of his goals at Rugby Park earlier this season.

    Kamara is a hell of a midfielder. Exactly what we need.

    Seen him play against Austria and I thought he did well enough, seen a few games this season and he looks a decent player albeit it's highlights I seen. I would take him as he wouldn't cost much and I think he has potential to become a better player if played beside better players.

    We do look top heavy on wingers but when you look at the team, Kent will be going back to Liverpool, Middleton is still potential and IMHO plays better when brought on later in a game and doesn't fare to well when played from the start in most cases. Outside Middleton and Kent we have Grezda and Candeias, Grezda we are hoping he becomes the player we have been told he can go on to be and Candeias for me blows hot and cold. Candeias is a decent player and I think lately his final ball has been improving but in some games I hate to say it but his final ball has been pathetic.

    I think there is a space/reason to go for him but I still feel a replacement for Ejaria and Coulibaly is the or should be the priority.

    I find this hard to believe. May well be a Bosman for next season but Killie would be hard to deal with.

    We do not need wide men as midfield can't play them in often enough. Centre midfield needs attention too many backward square ball playing players in there .

    While I’m sure Young has nothing concrete I’d not be upset if we did try and sign him.
