Rangers midfielder has final chance to prove he can cut it at Ibrox or face being binned
Rangers midfielder Jordan Rossiter has returned to Graeme Murty’s squad for Saturday’s Scottish Premiership clash with Motherwell on Saturday – and the midfielder has one last chance to prove he can be a big player for the Ibrox giants after his injury nightmare or face being binned in the summer.
The midfielder has spent most of his time with the Light Blues on the injured list after being struck by a number of issues before and after his move from Liverpool.
“Jordan Rossiter is in the squad for tomorrow along with Ross McCrorie and Graham Dorrans who are all progressing well,” Murty said as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

The 21-year-old has barely played for the Gers after arriving at Ibrox with a huge reputation and may fans have now given up hope that the former England youth international will come good.
Rossiter still has two years left on his Ibrox contract after this season but another injury setback will surely be the final straw for the Gers.

In the handful of games he has played for the Gers, the 21-year-old has looked a tidy player who would add something to the midfield and provide some defensive cover that has been lacking in the middle of the pitch.
Ross McCrorie done a fantastic job in a similar role earlier this season and could find himself being thrown in there against Motherwell after also returning to the squad after injury but McCrorie’s long-term future likely lies in central defence.
If the Gers can keep Rossiter fit and help him reach his potential he could be a fixture in the Light Blues midfield for years to come alongside Greg Docherty however if the 21-year-old can’t stay fit longer than a few weeks at a time it will be time for Rangers to move him.
