Ibrox View: Rangers player must learn lesson as Gerrard issues 'Naive' warning

Steven Gerrard had positive news for Rangers fans on Monday as he confirmed that both Jordan Jones and Steven Davies are both knocking on the door to return.

The Gers confirmed the update on their official Twitter account, with games coming thick and fast over the Christmas period.


Jones particularly will be chomping at the bit to return to action after only featuring four times in the league this season – one of those was against Celtic, a game he was sent off in.

Gerrard has issued a warning to the Northern Ireland international to learn from that, claiming that the 25-year-old would be very naive if he hasn’t in the months since.

“If we see that in training this week, then he will give me something to think about,” he told the Herald.

“I think it would be very naive from a personal point of view if he hasn’t learned from that, because he has missed a big chunk of the season.

“He knew himself, you only had to look at his face in the dressing room after that game against Celtic.”

The Rangers boss is spot on to warn his players to learn from their mistakes, and that will surely give them added motivation to prove themselves upon their return to action.

The 25-year-old needs to learn and do it quickly, or he will end up facing the nightmare of finding himself stuck on the bench with the likes of Joe Aribo improving dramatically in recent weeks.

Jones’ tackle on Moritz Bauer was a shocker and it was most likely a sign of frustration. The winger can’t let that happen again and it appears that Gerrard has taken measures to make sure of that.
