A RANGERS star was snared by police after they stopped him undertaking cars and tailgating on the motorway was fined £360 today.

Winger Jordan Jones pleaded to careless driving earlier this month, but was spared a road ban.

Jones, who was driving a Range Rover Sport, drifted over a chevron and white lines on Glasgow’s M8 and a junction on the M77 last July.

The 25-year-old also repeatedly carried out undertaking manoeuvres of various motor vehicles. 

The Northern Ireland international then drove too close to cars failing to leave a safe stopping distance.

His charge states that Jones drove “without due care or attention or without reasonable consideration for other persons using the road or public place.”

Jones, from Redcar, North Yorkshire, who was not required to attend the earlier hearing, pleaded guilty at Glasgow Sheriff Court by letter.

He had initially faced a charge of dangerous driving.

But, Jones was hauled into the dock today to be fined £360 and given five penalty points.

His lawyer, Michael Gallen said: "In my discussions with him, he said his driving was unimpressive.

“It was accepted that his driving fell below the required standard but it was careless driving rather dangerous.

“The Crown was not able to accept that plea until more material became available.”

Sheriff Valerie Mays told Jones: “The tailgating was quite concerning.

“However, having regard to what’s been said and other information I’ve received, I feel I can avoid disqualifying you.”
