Rangers

By Richard Parks

Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to hail Jordan Rossiter and call for him to be promoted into the first team after his comeback display for the youth team on Tuesday.

The Light Blues’ development squad ran riot against Leicester City to avenge a 6-1 thumping at Ibrox back in September.

Goals from Stephen Kelly and rising star Glenn Middleton had the Ibrox youngsters in control at the break before Zak Rudden’s hat-trick and a Liam Burt strike sealed a fine 6-0 win at the English club’s Belvoir Drive training complex on Tuesday..

Rossiter featured for the full 90 minutes as he made his return following another lengthy spell on the sidelines in what was a marked turnaround from the reverse fixture when Rangers were overpowered by a streetwise young Foxes side.

 

It was a third win on the bounce for the young side as they continue their experimental “Games Programme” against academy sides from around the world.

One of the main talking points for Rangers fans on social media was the performance of Rossiter, 21, following a campaign in which injuries have restricted him to just 197 senior minutes.

Fans have called for him to return to the first team, hailing his “first class” attitude and “outstanding” talent.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
