Rangers winger Jordan Jones hasn’t endured the best of years at Ibrox and is currently away from Glasgow on loan.
The Northern Ireland international is currently south of the border with Sunderland in League One as he attempts to rescue his Bears career.
Huge question marks remain on his career at Ibrox after his breach of COVID-19 protocols with George Edmundson at the start of the season left the club raging.
It has been a great start to his spell at Sunderland and Saturday was the pinnacle.
With his side struggling and 2-1 down against Crewe, Jones was introduced and immediately made a difference to earn his side a vital point.
Squaring up his man on the left, the 26-year-old completed some stepovers before firing an unstoppable drive into the top corner from outside the box.

Jones was untouchable against Crewe.
According to WhoScored, the winger was fouled four times in only 31 minutes as the League One side couldn’t find a way to nullify his threat down the left.
This was a timely reminder for Gerrard, who will be keeping a very close eye on the winger as he fights for his place back at Ibrox from the start of next season; one to watch.
Jones will have been left asking why this week, after Gerrard included Bongani Zungu, Nathan Patterson and Calvin Bassey in the squad against Royal Antwerp.
They did exactly the same when breaching protocols last week.
This must be used as a positive, and something that proves Jones can earn his spot back at the Bears should he continue to shine at Sunderland this season.
