Football Insider has named Rangers’ biggest disappointment of 2016.
Former Liverpool prospect Jordan Rossiter has been named our Rangers’ biggest disappointment of the year, beating the likes of fellow flops Joey Barton and Matt Crooks.
The Barton saga is well documented as he lasted just sixth months at the Ibrox giants between May and November, playing just eight times.
However, the Gers obtained the experienced 34-year-old on a free transfer with the only outgoings on the former England international his relatively high wages.
It is documented that the Ibrox giants have little in the transfer kitty after entering administration in 2012, but they chose to pay out £250,000 on Rossiter from Liverpool in the summer.
The former England Under-19 international was greeted by pleased fans with a CV which boasted five senior appearances for the Reds.
Many were even surprised to see him leave Anfield, but it has now become clear why.
Rossiter has managed to feature just six times for Mark Warburton’s outfit this season, two games less than Barton.
His season has been marred by injury after suffering with his calf in August and his injury problems seem to have followed him from his time with Liverpool.
He has so far proven to be a huge disappointment to fans, who are yet to have properly seen the player they paid a fee for.
Additionally, if his injury problems continue then he will simply be thrown on the scrapheap and Rangers will probably make a loss on him.
Rossiter does have time on his side and can still flourish into a top talent, but for now he has been the biggest disappointment for Rangers in a so far successful year.
