Jordan Jones saw red for Ibrox side Glasgow Rangers in Sunday’s defeat by Celtic.
Rangers winger Jordan Jones has personally apologised to Celtic defender Mortiz Bauer, according to Gary Dicker.
Jones picked up a late red card in his first Old Firm derby on Sunday for lunging in on the Hoops’ right-back.
In addition to that, the 24-year-old, who arrived at Rangers this past summer, injured himself in making the tackle.
Steven Gerrard warned him that he has ‘everything to do’ to get back in his team in scathing post-match comments by the Gers manager.
But Dicker, who played with Jones as recently as last season at Kilmarnock, reveals to BBC Sport that his old team-mate said that he has apologised to the Celtic man, who was making his debut.
The Irish midfielder said: “He spoke to the right-back at Celtic and apologised. I spoke to him today to see how he was.
“It can be a lonely place. He was pretty down, which is natural.”
It is indeed natural for the Rangers star to be ‘pretty down’.
Not only did he get injured and sent off at the exact same time, and incur the wrath of his manager, but he has a certain Ryan Kent to displace from the light Blues XI when he returns to fitness, a huge ask.
It hasn’t been a brilliant few days for Jones, but apologising to the Celtic man is a nice gesture nonetheless.
