Rangers midfielder Josh Windass has taken to Twitter to reveal to fans that crocked team-mate Jordan Rossiter is indeed ‘alive and well.’

Rossiter has been ruled out for much of the current season with a calf injury, and his last appearance for Rangers came in the 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock back in August.

The 19-year-old is currently on the road to recovery, and could be set to feature for the first-team well before the end of the season.

Windass took the opportunity to poke fun at Rossiter for his long-term absence, and took to his personal Twitter account on Friday afternoon to share that his Ibrox team mate was ‘alive.’

Rangers interim boss Graeme Murty had revealed on Wednesday that Rossiter had been back in the gym doing light work with the club physios, but is still some distance away from a return to full training.

Windass has also been sidelined with injury, but began training with the first-team midweek following his ankle injury.

The midfield duo have been greatly missed by Rangers fans over the past few months, and they will be excited to see them back in action before the end of the season.

Former Liverpool man Rossiter made just six appearances for the club this season before his setback, having joined the club in the summer.

Windass, meanwhile, contributed one goal and four assists from his 18 appearances for the club this season.

In other Rangers news, Murty has ruled himself out of the race to become the next permanent Rangers manager.
