Winger Jordan Jones has promised Rangers fans he’ll be “back soon” after having sat out the last two months with a knee injury.
The 25-year-old injured himself in the Old Firm defeat back at the start of December.
After coming on for the last 20 minutes of the game he was sent off after a foul on Celtic defender Moritz Bauer in the last seconds of the game.
He injured his knee in the tackle and hasn’t played for Rangers since, missing out on the Europa League squad.

Now it looks like he’s on the verge of a first-team return, after the message he posted alongside an image of himself in training.
However, he might well face an uphill challenge to get back in the team.
Manager Steven Gerrard wasn’t happy with him at the time and accused him of playing up to the home supporters.
As quoted in the Scottish Sun he said, “It was a red card. I think Jordan’s been trying to appease the fans there.
“That’s not how you appease Rangers fans. You create goals and score goals if you’re a wide man.
“He deserves the red card, he deserves the ban and he’s got everything to do now to get back into my team.”
Jones will find Ryan Kent, Sheyi Ojo and Brandon Barker in between him and a place in the first-team but it’s great to have him back and he’ll add even more depth to a squad that looks much more suited to a grueling season playing across multiple competitions.
