Rangers are open to offloading Jordan Jones and Glenn Middleton, while Greg Stewart could also leave before the transfer deadline next month.
All three players have their supporters among the fanbase and, talking about the trio’s futures on Twitter, fans have been debating whether manager Steven Gerrard should consider keeping any of them:
Bye, Bye and Bye.
Not good enough for the Famous.
Football can be cruel but wish them all the very best.#WATP 🔴⚪️🔵🇬🇧

It’s a shame because they are all very under-rated players jamesie,Jones done his career by trying to take that Celtic player oot then gets injured,wee glen disnae fit in n Greg S just isn’t trusted for some reason,coin in the bank tho!🔴⚪️🔵

Jordan Jones hasn't been giving justice here

Jones, I’ve never been a fan of. Middleton still young, quite liked him when he broke through, but is he going to make us better team going forward (probably not) Stewart I always felt hasn’t been used enough. Felt he could bring a bit more ‘toughness’ to kill off games

If kent, God forbid, got injured. We'll need the likes of JJ or Middleton. Greg Stewart has the talent, though not sure he is Rangers class. I hate saying that as he gives it his all and hes a blue nose.

All 3 are quality players, just not got the adversity to break through! Saying that Middleton dosnt get the recognition he deserves

None of them do imo, they all have had good impacts, especially Stewart

3 good players who are slightly unfortunate not to get a run

Only one I'd genuinely miss would be jones as i think he needs a better chance

Jones, no doubt, has the ability to play for Rangers but Gerrard clearly sees something that we don’t see in training. He has rarely been used since being sent off against Celtic last year.
Stewart’s case is slightly different. He was brought in to offer something different and, at times, he has looked the part, but he really doesn’t fit the system that Gerrard plays.
Middleton, meanwhile, struggled when he was sent out on loan last season and, while there is a chance that he’ll come good in the future, it’s unlikely to happen for him at Ibrox.
