Gerrard, who was appointed the Rangers manager in the summer of 2018, worked with Jones when he was in charge of the Liverpool academy.

Carragher told Sky Sports (September 26, 2018): “He’s an attacking midfield player who, as soon as Steven Gerrard went down to the academy to manage, he was speaking to me about this player saying he has got a chance for the first-team.

“What he meant by that is that he (Jones) has a chance of dipping his toe in and it’s up to him, some people take to it, some people don’t.”
