Rarely-seen Rangers player could finally make return v Hibernian
Rangers midfielder Jordan Rossiter has endured a torrid time with injuries since he moved to the Ibrox giants from Liverpool in 2016 – but Sunday’s clash with Hibernian at Easter Road could see him finally make his long-awaited return from injury.
Ross McCrorie and Graham Dorrans will both miss the trip to Leith through suspension and injury, respectively, leaving Greg Docherty, Sean Goss and Rossiter to fight it out to join Jason Holt in midfield against Neil Lennon’s side.
Rossiter was due to come off the bench during Tuesday night’s 1-1 draw with Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership, according to the Sky Sports commentary team who mentioned that the midfielder was set to be introduced to the action, but never got off the bench as the Gers missed the chance to overtake the Dons in second in the Scottish Premiership.
Getting the rarely-seen player back playing regularly will be crucial for the Gers and with Steven Gerrard – who Rossiter has been likened to as a player – set to take the reins at Ibrox in three weeks it could finally see the Gers start to get the best out of a player who arrived to much fanfare under Mark Warburton.
With limited options available for the final game of the season against Hibs, Rossiter could find himself handed a key role and a chance to impress before Gerrard arrives and starts his Ibrox revolution.
