Jai Quitongo has started a Twitter war with soon to be Rangers star Jordan Jones.

The son of Hearts legend José claimed that Jones will be watching Celtic do 10-in-a-row.

However, it wasn’t the current Kilmarnock winger who started the row as he responded to Quitongo’s jibe.

The row left the Northern Irishman telling him to ‘grow up’.

Following last night’s superb Champions League encounter between Spurs and Man City, Jones took to Twitter to say that Son is the best Asian player.

Quitongo replied: “Nakamura is the best Asian player ever FACT.”

Jones raced in to defend himself and said: “Ooo look at me I’m a Celtic fan and all the Celtic fans will like my tweet oooo grow up mate.”

Taking it on the chin, Quitongo replied: “Oh we’re a Rangers man now, careful mate you’re not in Glasgow yet, enjoy watching 10-in-a-row brother.”

Patter or not, Jones appears to have seriously overreacted to the former Morton striker.

The 21-year-old forward is now playing his football in Iran with Machine Sazi.

However, he still has a bit to go to reach the same amount of clubs as his Dad who is still playing amateur football.

Can Celtic get at Jordan Jones?

Jones may be the type of player that the Hoops can look to wind up in next season’s derby matches.

He definitely wears his heart on his sleeve and comes from a massive Northern Irish Rangers background.

Alfredo Morelos is a Gers star who can’t handle a wind-up but if he leaves the mantle for that is open.

There aren’t any stories so far between Jones and Celtic but it’s early days.

However, if this is how he acts on social media to a bit of ribbing, who knows what he’ll be like on the pitch.
