Jordan Rossiter was pictured at Rangers’ training ground on Friday afternoon with assistant manager David Weir – and supporters took to Twitter to welcome the imminent signing.
The 19-year-old Anfield Academy graduate arrived at the club to finalise the paperwork on his transfer from Liverpool.
Rossiter has agreed the terms of a four-year contract after rebuffing late interest from Tottenham.
This comes after he was given a tour of Ibrox last weekend and was told how he would fit into the team’s plans by manager Mark Warburton.
With Rossiter’s Liverpool contract due to expire at the end of the season he is able to exploit a FIFA loophole allowing him to join a club outside of England for just £250,000.
Rangers fans took to Twitter to give their verdict on the cut-price signing, who has been recommended by head of recruitment Frank McParland, the former Liverpool Academy director, who is a big admirer of the midfielder and provided a glowing endorsement to manager Mark Warburton.
