Rangers midfielder Jordan Rossiter continued his latest comeback attempt with a 65-minute appearance for the Under-20s in the 4-0 win over Breidablik on Tuesday – but the 21-year-old now has six games to save his Ibrox career.
The former Liverpool youngster has spent the vast majority of his time since moving to Rangers in 2016 receiving treatment for a host of injuries which have limited him to ten first-team appearances in almost two seasons.
Rossiter arrived at Ibrox with a big reputation and many had hoped the England youth international would be able to slot straight into the Gers midfield but it hasn’t worked out that way.
A raft of injuries have left the Liverpool-born ace fighting to save his career but with Rossiter’s injury history and sizeable wage, the Gers might feel they have no option left but to try to move him on in the summer, although with two years left on his contract that might prove difficult.
At only 21, there’s still a really good chance that Rossiter can fulfil his undoubted potential if he can stay fit for any reasonable length of time but the problem for Rangers is that they can’t afford to be taking the gamble that he can stay out of the physio’s room.
After coming through the Breidablik clash seemingly unscathed, Rossiter could still find his way into the first-team before the summer and prove he deserves the chance to prove his fitness at Ibrox.
