FORMER Celtic boss Tony Mowbray is weighing up a January move for Jordan Jones as he looks to bolster his Blackburn attack this month.

Championship sides Middlesbrough and Stoke City – who are managed by ex-Northern Ireland gaffer Michael O’Neill – have been credited with an interest in Jones in recent weeks.

And Blackburn are now the latest club to have put Jones on their list of potential recruits just six months after he completed a move from Kilmarnock to Rangers.

Jones missed most of the first half of the campaign after injuring himself on his Old Firm debut at Ibrox and is with Steven Gerrard’s side in Dubai following his return to training last month.

Gerrard has challenged Jones to make up for lost time after being crocked for huge domestic matches and Rangers’ Europa League run.

But the former Killie wide man is not short of admirers south of the border and Gerrard and Jones could have offers to consider before the close of business this month.
