Rangers fans have taken to Twitter urging the club to rip up the contract of Jordan Rossiter after his latest injury blow.
Manager Graeme Murty revealed at his media conference on Thursday that the midfielder, 20, had suffered an ankle injury while playing for the club’s development side against Valencia in Spain last week.
Injury-prone Rossiter, 20, is set to be further assessed on Monday but Murty admitted he could face yet another spell on the sidelines.
Rangers supporters took to social media to express their disappointment at the latest blow in what has been a difficult time at Ibrox for the former Liverpool player.
A section of those fans called for the club to sever their ties with Rossiter and pay off the remainder of his contract, with comments including “get him sold” and “needs to go”.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Regarding Rossiter, if this ankle injury isn’t long term it’s his last chance to get and stay fit. Otherwise they need to let his contract expire, nothing else for it

Rossiter needs to be sold in the summer no point paying the wages of someone who’s only played about 5 games for us in 2 years, had awful luck with injuries but there’s no room for sympathy in football

Rossiter has barely been seen by the Ibrox faithful since joining from Liverpool for a fee of £250,000 in the summer of 2016.
He has suffered recurring back, hamstring and calf problems that have restricted him to just 10 appearances for the Glasgow giants.
Much had been expected of the central midfielder when Rangers took advantage of cross-border compensation fees after his contract had expired at Liverpool.
The Daily Mail report that Rossiter was handed a £10,000-a-week contract that runs until 2020 when he joined.
In other Rangers news, a stunning £9million bid is incoming for a Light Blues sensation as club prepare their next move.
