Rangers Winger Jordan Jones Has Apologised to Celtic’s Moritz Bauer, Says Kilmarnock’s Gary Dicker

Kilmarnock captain Gary Dicker has revealed Jordan Jones has apologised to Celtic defender Moritz Bauer for his wild red card tackle on Sunday.

Jones came off the bench to make his Old Firm debut for new club Rangers during the weekend’s hotly-anticipated clash but was given his marching orders by referee Bobby Madden for a nasty lunge on Bauer in the final moments of Celtic’s 2-0 victory.

Ironically, Jones injured himself making the tackle, and has been forced to pull-out of Northern Ireland’s squad for their upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Dicker and Jones obviously know each other well after spending several seasons at Rugby Park together, and the Killie skipper says the winger has seen the error of his ways and offered an apology to Bauer.

Speaking as a guest on Tuesday’s edition of BBC Radio Sportsound, Dicker explained: “I spoke to him today to see how he was.

“It can be a lonely place. He was pretty down, which is natural.

“It’s frustration. I don’t think he was doing it to get a round of applause or hurt someone. It can mess with your emotions, it’s a big occasion, but he’ll learn from it.

“He’s waiting for scan results.

“Hopefully it won’t be as serious as he thinks it is. He spoke the right-back at Celtic and apologised.”

What do you think of Jones’ apology, and do you think he’ll still be a big hit as a Rangers player?
