Rangers winger Jordan Jones made a rare appearance for the first team when he came off the bench in the 1-0 victory against Ross County at the weekend.
It was only the fourth appearance the Northern Ireland international has made since picking up a bad knee injury back in September.
Fans on Twitter are hoping that after impressing in his 15-minute cameo, it will lead to Jones making more appearances in some crucial upcoming games:
A start v Leverkusen and Celtic please.

Don't see why JJ doesn't start to be honest, so direct and a willing runner. Surely Gerrard cant still be mad at you Fot that red card?

Jones’ brief career at Ibrox has been a strange one. During pre-season and the early stages of the campaign, it looked as though he would be a key player for manager Steven Gerrard.
However, after returning to fitness following three months out in December, Gerrard suggested that the 25-year-old was simply not offering enough in training to convince him that he deserved more game time.
It resulted in him being effectively frozen out with him being left out of matchday squads and being rarely used from the bench when he was selected. Whether his appearance on Sunday is a sign of more opportunities to come, we shall have to wait and see.
