Kilmarnock fans should not be twits over Jordan Jones’ tweet after sealing Rangers deal, says Alan Brazil

KILMARNOCK fans don’t trust Jordan Jones now he’s Rangers-bound.

I can understand that.

But the Killie support has to trust Steve Clarke because he’s working miracles at Rugby Park.

Clarke was strong in his defence of Jones, who’d posted an ill-advised tweet.

He had to be too, because the attacker will be staying at Kilmarnock until the end of the season.

That hasn’t pleased the fans, who want to see him on his way to Ibrox immediately.

That’s what happens when you show the club that’s paying your wages a lack of respect, as Jones did when he celebrated his impending move to Ibrox.

It doesn’t help that Killie are in a top-of-the-Premiership battle with the Gers at the moment.

Jones should have been aware of that, and he should have kept his Twitter account shut.

Much as the Rugby Park punters don’t like it, they have to take their lead from their manager.

Clarke has told them that if they boo Jones, they are booing him, because he selects the team.

That’s fair enough.

I hope Killie fans respect their manager enough to put their anger to one side.

If they do, I reckon they could be in for a cracking run-in.
