Jordan started his career at Rangers where his career development was documented on the TV documentary Blue Heaven.
However he only made two first team appearances for the Ibrox side and spent the majority of his time on loan at Hamilton Accies, Queen of the South and Wrexham respectively.
He left Rangers in 2013 to join Dunfermline Athletic, but was made redundant the following season after the club entered administration.
In March of that year he joined Partick Thistle and became part of their first division title-winning team.
He was released from Firhill in 2015 and, to his great credit, after a two year absence from football he returned in 2017, signing a short-term contract with Clyde, before spending time with Lowland Football League side Edusport Academy.
Manager Jim Duffy feels that the experienced defender will be an asset to the club.
