Winger Jamie Murphy looks set to be missing from Rangers action for the foreseeable future, opening up the possibility of turning to the transfer market for a solution.

Manager Steven Gerrard confirmed post-Kilmarnock that they are fearing the worst with regards to Murphy’s apparent knee injury, indicating that the 28-year-old is going to be out of action for a long time.

Thankfully, with two weeks left before the end of the summer transfer window, Rangers have plenty of time sort out a viable replacement.

There are options in the squad as it is, with Glenn Middleton and Ryan Kent showing promise. However, to provide the depth Rangers need, a move for an affordable talent may be the best decision.

One player that would fit the bill is one of Sunday’s opponents – Jordan Jones. The left-sided winger has been a target of Rangers’ in the past, with the club reported have had a £500,000 bid rejected for him in January.

Clearly he is on the radar of Mark Allen and re-igniting that interest is a definite potential solution.

Currently rated at £675,000 by Transfermarkt, we may not have to increase that rejected offer too much from January, putting him well within the club’s budget.

A Northern Ireland international, he’s been one of the shining lights of an impressive Kilmarnock side over the last 12 months, scoring four goals and creating ten assists last season.

He was bright again against the Gers this weekend and we could certainly do a lot worse than bringing the 23-year-old to Ibrox.
