KILMARNOCK today rejected a Rangers bid for around £350,000 for Northern Ireland internationalist Jordan Jones. And Killie gaffer Steve Clarke has warned the Ibrox side that his star midfielder will NOT be sold on the cheap.
Clarke described the Rangers bid as ‘nowhere near acceptable’ and it will now be a matter for Rangers to re-consider their options and see if they have the funds to increase the offer in the hope of landing the player who made his international debut in the World Cup Play-off against Switzerland at the end of last year.
Clarke knows that there are plenty of suitors for the stand out 23 year old who has still a season and a half to go in his contract. The Killie boss is in no rush to sell and certainly not on the cheap.
“There’s been a bid, nowhere near acceptable.
“I would be a little bit sad if I was the player, to be honest, that the bid was so low.
“It was an easy one for the club to turn down,” Clarke revealed.
Rangers have been active in the transfer window but loan deals have been the preference as the club counts the cost of the expensive summer spending spree by former manager Pedro Caixinha which proved to be disastrous.
