Rangers midfielder Jordan Rossiter is facing another spell on the sidelines after his latest shattering injury blow, according to a report.
Gers fan blog Four Lads Had a Dream, which is a reliable source of news about the club, reported on their Twitter account on Thursday morning that the summer 2016 signing broke down with an ankle injury sustained playing in Spain last week and has not been able to subsequently train.
The blog explained that the new problem forced Rossiter out of the Rangers development squad’s clash against Manchester United yesterday (Wednesday) but the extent of the injury is not yet known.
Quite a few asking why Jordan Rossiter missed yesterday’s Man Utd development game and the response we got isn’t good.
Jordan injured his ankle in Spain last week & hasn’t been able to train since. The extent of it is unknown, will try & find out more soon

Rossiter skippered the youth team to a 1-0 victory at Valencia last week as he continued his recovery from yet another injury.
The midfielder, 20, has barely been seen by the Ibrox faithful since joining from Liverpool for a fee of £250,000 in the summer of 2016.
Rossiter 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.
