Rangers midfielder Jordan Rossiter is currently in the spotlight following a bizarre suggestion made by former Gers skipper Lee McCulloch.

Writing in his column in the Evening Times, McCulloch suggests that Rossiter could be the man to become the next Gers skipper.

His reasoning is that Steven Gerrard will know the player from their time at Liverpool together, and how much mental strength the player has shown to overcome his awful injury problems.

Whilst that is an undeniably laudable claim by McCulloch, it is also very unrealistic, as Gerrard will not make a player who has only player 11 games in two seasons his captain.

However, what Gerrard must do is send the 21-year-old out on loan for next season.

A season in the top-half of the Championship for example, could do wonders for the player and give him plenty of confidence to take into the rest of his Ibrox career.

The midfielder still has time on his side, and time on his contract to make it at Ibrox, but understandably Gerrard will want the player to prove that he can keep fit over a season after a succession of injuries.

If Rossiter is able to complete a season without injury, he would return to Ibrox revitalised and ready to kickstart his Gers career.

He might never become captain of the Light Blues, but he could still play a big part in the years to come at Rangers.
