As reported by eveningtimes.co.uk,
STEPHEN Craigan has accused Jordan Jones of being naïve and disrespectful in the wake of striking a deal to join Rangers and warned Kilmarnock fans could turn against the winger in the second half of the season and make his position at Rugby Park untenable.
Jones took to social media website Twitter after signing a pre-contract agreement with the Ibrox club earlier this week and stated the moment was “a dream come true” before signing off “WATP” (We Are The People).
His post, which appeared on the day of Kilmarnock’s 150th anniversary, has been badly received by many Rugby Park supporters and prompted Barry Richmond, a Kilmarnock Trust director, to call for him to be dropped.
Speaking as Premier Sports unveiled their presenting team for the William Hill Scottish Cup at Hampden earlier this week, former Northern Ireland captain Craigan branded his countryman’s actions ill-advised and predicted they could have far-reaching consequences.
“It’s naïve by Jordan,” he said. “I don’t know him personally, so I don’t know what his motives are. But it’s naïve, to say the least. I’d be surprised if someone has advised him on that. It could be just a personal thing.
“I’m a big believer that if you’re going to earn brownie points from a club you’re going to earn it from your playing style.
