Glen Kamara. Pointless signing. Rangers already have Jason Holt, Greg Docherty, Graham Dorrans, Scott Arfield, Ross McCrorie, Steven Davis reported to be close to signing, Ryan Jack. Where does Kamara fit in to all of this. 

 

Holt and Doherty are obviously not in the plans. Dorrans has barely played because of injury and McCrorie is being used in midfield because they don't have anyone better at the moment so I imagine he fits in somewhere.

McCorie is DM, Gerrard really rates him so I would not be too quick to dismiss him. Docherty is a bizarre one, is doing really well on loan at League one but would agree signing another midfielder doesn't suggest he is not in the long term fans (would take him at Hearts.)

Can't say I really noticed Doherty at Hamilton and I thought he looked rubbish for Rangers. Might be better than I think though but I can't imagine he'll turn it around at Rangers.

There is a twitter account I follow who look into stats in Scottish football and that person had been calling for Rangers to sign for a while before signing him (the account is owned by a Rangers fan.) But stats showed him being a really good player (also thought it when I saw him.) Got messed about by Rangers.

Jones will probably do well. Having a fantastic season.

Is he? Did he not find himself out the team for a few weeks? 2 goals and 0 assists in 19 matches.

 

Compare that to Greg Stewart, 8 goals and 6 assists in 16 matches.

Someone said Djoum was having a poor season last night and dished out the stats which on paper weren't that impressive. 

 

Jones is having a good season. Certainly above average and he should be a good acquisition for the huns.

Was just away to say that , doesn’t appear from games Iv seen to be playing aswell as he was , similar to Mitchell in how his performance has dropped. May be having a couple better players around him has had the same effect as how we see Mitchell just now.

 

Docherty has talent though , his stats last year suggested he was one of the best midfielders in the league in a poor Hamilton team. If he can get away from Rangers and push on the potential is there imo

Djoum isn't having a great season, he was good against Hibs but pretty poor for the most part. I wouldn't expect his stats to paint him in a good light. Jones is decent, he has pace but he's not having a great season either.

Wasn't me, he's been average this season, you can't have one good game against Hibs then suddenly you've had a really good season, for example of somebody having a good season look at Peter Haring in midfield, not sure if his stats stack up as showing he's had a good season but he definitely has.

Kamara seems like an indulgent signing. Can see why they'd go for Jones and I reckon he'll kick on at rangers.

Kamara is the type of player that will look much better beside players on his level rather than the shite he’s had to play alongside at Dundee. Good solid signing, would have taken him here.

Yeah I like him but feels like rangers have just went and got him as a statement after he got some recognition. Don't think he's that much better than Holt or Docherty but could well be proved wrong on that.

Jones makes me sick. "This dream" - while he's still playing for Killie. 

 

Anyone who's dream it is to play for (or pretend to be) either side the old firm can do one. Moronic. Thick. Bigoted. Arseholes.

He’ll play a season and a half, loaned out down south and back playing for st Johnstone or some mob just like all the others who go to sign for their ‘boyhood team’.

For some it is a dream, he'll be earning money like he never has before and playing in front of around 50k every other week, it's nippy but most players in Scottish football will jump at the chance to sign for Rangers or Celtic.

Kris Boyd probably drove him to Ibrox to sign the contract. On the radio yesterday they were saying that Boyd had said Killie can’t win the league and he thinks that Rangers will. There’s a surprise!

Jones has been hugely disrespectful. I’d not play him at all if I were Clarke.

 

What happens if Killie and Rangers are toe to toe on the last Europe spot or something? I wouldn’t expect Jones to be professional given his WATP pish.

If I was Steve Clarke I wouldn’t be selling Jones early and sticking him in the reserves for the rest of the season. Horrendous chat from a player still contracted to a club.

Sit him on his arse, like Boyd.

 

They can have wee lovey chats about Rangers. Boyd can live his Rangers fantasy, vicariously through Jones then, instead of the media.

Originally signed in 2016 from Middlesbrough, Jones has gone on to establish himself as one of the top wingers in the Scottish Premiership, scoring nine goals and providing 22 assists in 108 games.

 

 

Is it me or that a poor return? 

Not sure where these stats come from but he has played 102 games in league and Cup, scored 9 and assisted 10. 

This season with Killie flying he has assisted 0, last season 4 (and one in the league Cup) 

 

His stats are really uninspiring and I honestly think if he was in maroon, with stats like those, everyone would be calling for him to be dropped. 

 

For comparison, Don Cowie in 2016—2018 scored 4 and assisted 11

 

Edit-Cowie were in 69 games

That was from the BBC report on him signing a pre-contract , agreed though.

Killie are a club with pretty much zero self respect.....

 

They give up their stadium to the OF when they come to town and allow one of their senior players to publically tamper with himself over Rangers. It’s no wonder Jones thinks he’s actions are acceptable.

Steven Davis loan deal to Rangers until summer. Apparently, he is keeping his options open. I am sure that the Rangers fans will welcome his undying commitment to the cause.😁

Could very well be. Weakens a rival, strengthens their cgsbces if getting 2nd place, but displacing celtic?.. 

I'd love Hearts to almost indoctrinate our young players into looking past those two clubs, and instead targeting a decent Championship club to move to like Callum Paterson

Less goals and assists than Lee, Harring and I think even Djoum 

 

He brings an air of uncertainty and creativity, for sure but his effectiveness is still to be proven.
