Troubled times: Jordan Jones faces an uncertain future at Rangers

Further doubt has been cast on Jordan Jones' future at Rangers after the winger was hit with a hefty seven-match ban for breaching Covid-19 rules.

Gers duo Jones and George Edmundson broke strict government guidelines when they attended an indoor house party after their side's 1-0 Scottish Premiership win over Kilmarnock earlier this month.

Northern Ireland ace Jones and English central defender Edmundson were charged by the Scottish FA and suspended by Rangers pending an investigation.

The pair learned their punishment at an SFA hearing yesterday. They were found to have breached the governing body's rules relating to Covid-19 protocols, as well as having acted against the interests of the sport.

Neither Jones nor Edmundson have featured regularly for Rangers this season, and both could face further punishment from the club. They will not be available to play until the Premiership meeting with St Mirren on December 30.

If Ibrox boss Steven Gerrard does allow Jones to seek a new challenge, former Northern Ireland supremo Michael O'Neill could bring him to Stoke City.

Jones was left out of the Northern Ireland squad for the triple header that included the Euro 2020 play-off with Slovakia but boss Ian Baraclough hopes he will be available for the World Cup qualifiers which begin in March.
