'Get your bags', 'Leave' - Rangers fans go berserk as player retweets inflammatory Celtic banner
Rangers fans on Twitter have demanded that Jordan Rossiter leaves Ibrox after he retweeted an image of an inflammatory Celtic banner from the Old Firm last weekend.
Rossiter, 20, shared the tweet on his personal Twitter account on Sunday which showed an image of away fans brutally mocking Rangers supporters as Brendan Rodgers’ side won 3-2 in Govan on Mother’s Day.

Understandably, Rossiter has faced a furious backlash from Gers supporters, however there has been suggestions that the 20-year-old has had his account hacked.
The midfielder, who was signed by Mark Warburton in 2016, has barely kicked a ball this season due to injury, making just four appearances in all competitions.
The ex-Liverpool player has only managed to play 10 times for the Light Blues due to constant injury woes and now it seems that fans do not want to see him add to that and are demanding that he leaves the club at the next available opportunity.
Here is a selection of their tweets:

There will no doubt be something said by Rossiter about this as soon as he realise the fury that has been caused by this retweet.
He is contracted at Ibrox until 2020 in what was one of Warburton’s worst signings at Ibrox.
However there’s every chance that with the plethora of midfield options at Rangers that Rossiter may well be moved on regardless of his social media activity.
