Northern Ireland winger Jordan Jones has been in top form for club Kilmarnock, and his beautiful curling shot against Hibernian earlier this year has been nominated for Goal of the Season.

23-year old Jones has played his way into international contention due to his performances in the Scottish Premiership, and with finishes like this he'll be forcing his way into a green shirt sooner rather than later.

The ball is only partially cleared by Hibs from a Killie corner, and whenever it drops to Jones on the edge of the box, he beats two defenders with feints to cut inside before unleashing a perfect right footed curler into the top corner that leaves keeper Ofir Marciano with no chance.

Jones' sweet strike came in the 58th minute, making it 2-1 after Hibs took an early two goal lead, and the two sides would go on to battle to a 2-2 draw thanks to Kris Boyd's equaliser.

The winger will have stiff competition, however, as he'll have to fight off Kieran Tierney's thunderbolt for Celtic against Kilmarnock and Louis Moult's cracking lob against Rangers.

Take a look at the goal here!
