Glasgow Rangers have signed Jordan Jones, the Northern Irish international midfielder or winger on a pre-free-transfer-deal, which has been set for June this year, BBC Sport have confirmed.

Why did Steven Gerrard want to sign Jones from Kilmarnock? 

What does this mean for the other Rangers wingers and midfielders already at the club? 

Should they all be worrying about their place in the team?

Take Ryan Kent for example. 

The Liverpool year-long-loanee has been an exciting and huge success at Rangers, so Jones won’t replace Kent if he signs a permanent deal to stay at Ibrox.

Kent has already indicated that he is loving life in Glasgow and is also enjoying his football by playing in the SPFL with Rangers.

What about Jamie Murphy?

The devastating wideman was playing brilliantly in the Rangers first team when his studs got stuck in the Rugby Park plastic pitch, and was injured for the rest of the season.

Will Jones keep out 18-year-old Glenn Middleton?

Probably not, as the youngster seems to be more direct and is already a huge favourite with the Rangers fans.

Would Jones play at outside right instead of Daniel Candeias?

Doubt it, as the Portuguese attacker is tremendous at working in tandem with captain James Tavernier down the right, and is fully established at Rangers.

Should Jones replace Eros Grezda in the Rangers side?

Albanian internationalist Grezda was recently signed for £2 million, and is trying to find his feet at Rangers, but he was out injured for a while and is still not 100% match fit yet. 

Midfielders Jones could be competing against and who are already at the club: Steve Davis, Scott Arfield, Lassana Coulibaly, Ross McCrorie, Graham Dorrans, Andy Halliday, Ryan Jack and Jordan Rossiter.

Jones was signed because he is a good player on a free transfer, and he can only improve by playing alongside better players and increase competition within the team.
