Former Rangers skipper Lee McCulloch has thrown his weight behind to well-trodden rumours in the press as manager Steven Gerrard starts turning one eye on the New Year and potential January transfer targets.

Midfielder Steve Davis is a regular when it comes to speculation and with his lack of game time at Southampton, stories in the press and the calls from fans for the former favourite to return have only increased as the weeks have ticked by.

Another one is Kilmarnock’s winger Jordan Jones.

Speaking to the Scottish Sun recently, McCulloch stated that he felt both players should be prime targets for our gaffer as we look for a strong second half to the year with so much to play for in the league.

“Jordan is a Kilmarnock player, but he could be the one who could unlock defences with teams now sitting in against Rangers. When Rangers struggled in the draw against Dundee that’s the type of situation where you need a bit of magic that Jones could provide. When teams sit deep against you — and I never went past anyone in my life — you need someone to go and beat two or three players and Jones is tailor made for that. It’s a no-brainer to get him.”

Jig said he felt that it would probably take Jones about a month to settle in Ibrox but once he did we’d quickly see his strengths and he would bring the best out of Alfredo Morelos and Kyle Lafferty.

As for Davis, a man he knows well, he went on to add.

“There’s no doubt he could still do a job at Rangers. He’s been at Ibrox before, he’s captained the club and he knows what it’s all about. He can play several positions and he’s a fantastic player with great experience. It’s a no-brainer signing.”
