Jordan Jones has been quoted by the Daily Record as saying that reported interest in his services in recent transfer windows have been "mental torture" - and Rangers fans reacted on Twitter.

The 23-year-old has starred in recent seasons for current side Kilmarnock, earning interest from Rangers, Norwich City and Sunderland in the summer.

Last season, Jones scored four goals as well as laying on 10 assists, as Kilmarnock defied the odds to finish in the top 10 under Steve Clarke. It saw Steven Gerrard retain Rangers' interest.

 

Jones said: "It is mental torture really. You are getting told a lot of things and you’re trying to concentrate on your football but it is honestly draining. It was literally two of the worst times in my life going through those transfer windows.

Rangers need a winger after Jamie Murphy's season-ending injury, while new signing Eros Grezda remains a doubt for the upcoming games against Dundee and Villarreal.

Middlesbrough-born Jones has continued to shine despite his comments, even earning his third cap for Northern Ireland during the most recent international break in a 3-0 win over Israel.

Some Rangers fans reacted to Jones' comments, questioning why a move to a club like Rangers would cause him distress, while others urged Gerrard to finally land the fleet-footed winger.
