Alan Hutton claims that Rangers midfielder Jordan Rossiter has played his last game for the club as he heads towards the end of his contract at Ibrox.

The former Gers defender and boyhood fan of the Glasgow giants, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, says that the 22-year-old looks to be out of Steven Gerrard’s plans and that he does not appear to have a future with the Light Blues.

Having struggled for game time at Ibrox during the first half of last season, the former Liverpool youngster was sent on loan to League Two outfit Bury, while this campaign has seen him temporarily join Fleetwood Town in League One.

With Rossiter’s four-year deal coming to an end in the summer of 2020, Hutton claims that the midfielder’s injury problems have done him no help whatsoever in trying to forge a career with the Glasgow giants.

Hutton told Football Insider: “I can’t imagine (him playing for Rangers again). It’s difficult, he’s come up and I think he’s had injury problems before he actually signed, as in a history of problems. 

“It was difficult, he found it hard to stay fit for long periods of time. He’s out on loan at the moment, can I see him playing for Rangers again? No, no really. Midfield, they’re very strong at the moment.

“I know Gerrard knows him really well, he must obviously think he’s a good player but ultimately if he can’t stay fit, the chances are going to be slim.” 

Rossiter has played 16 times for the Gers since signing from Liverpool back in 2016, scoring a single goal during his difficult four years in Glasgow.

He has suffered a number of calf injuries throughout his career which have forced him to sit out no less than 94 games while with the Light Blues.
