Alan Hutton admits his heart bleeds for Rangers midfielder Jordan Rossiter after his exit from Ibrox was confirmed by the club.
The former Gers defender, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, has bemoaned the injury problems which have plagued the Liverpool-born talent throughout his whole career.
As revealed by Football Insider, the 23-year-old has set his sights on a move to an English side after it was confirmed he would be leaving Glasgow this summer.
#RangersFC can confirm that Andy Halliday, Jon Flanagan and Wes Foderingham will depart from Ibrox upon expiry of their permanent contracts.

He has struggled to make any sort of an impact at Ibrox since signing four years ago and spent this season on loan at League One side Fleetwood Town.
However, after a promising start with the Cod Army, he was ruled out for the rest of the campaign back after picking up knee ligament problem.
Having seen the midfielder struggle with a multitude of fitness issues so far, Hutton is just hoping he can find a way to get his career back on track.
“I feel for him, I hate speaking about players like this because there are so many of them,” Hutton told Football Insider.
“You can see they’re talented players, you know they are, they’ve got all the ability in the world but it’s their body that’s breaking down and it’s not their fault. They can’t help it or stop it, it’s just one of those things.
“The game is such a fast pace and there’s so much strength involved, it’s each to pick up little niggling injuries and he just seems to be one of those players. It’s a real shame because he’s a very talented boy and it’s just not worked out wherever he’s been.”
Rossiter managed to play just 16 times for the Gers during his time in Glasgow, with his last appearance coming back in December 2018.
He managed to make 19 appearances for Joey Barton’s Fleetwood side this season, while he also spent time on loan at Bury.
