Liverpool youngster Jordan Rossiter has signed for Rangers

Rangers have confirmed midfielder Jordan Rossiter will join the club in the summer from Liverpool.

England Under-19 cap Rossiter, 19, has agreed a four-year deal.

“Jordan is an outstanding young England youth international who will be an excellent addition,” manager Mark Warburton told the Rangers website.

“Technically gifted and game aware, he also has a first-class character and displays a tigerish desire to reach the highest levels of the game.”

Rossiter made five first-team appearances for Liverpool after captaining and graduating from Liverpool’s academy, including featuring against Sion in the Europa League – Jurgen Klopp’s first game in charge of the Merseyside club.

Rangers won this season’s Scottish Championship to gain promotion to the Premiership and will face Hibernian in the Scottish Cup final on 21 May.

This is a shock for me to have found out from the BBC Football news 25 minutes ago.  Who made this decision not to renew his contract? Klopp? He’s a young lad that has potential to make it big at the club and I am gutted by this news. I know it’s Friday the 13th but this is really taking the ****.  Disappointing news today for me and I wish Jordan all the best at Rangers.

What’s a bit weird is that we’ll only get a £250,000 transfer fee because of a tribunal regulation. Not a lot in the grand scheme of things. For Jordan himself it’s probably a good move, I can see him getting much more first team football at Rangers than he’d get at Liverpool. We’ve got quite a lot of midfielders at the moment and Klopp may bring in some of his own too. I don’t like to see young players just stockpiled on the bench, which seems to happen with academy players, as they waste the early years of their twenties only being thrown the occasional game. With the way Rossiter plays, not being afraid to get stuck in, I think he’ll do well in Scottish football and I think the Rangers fans will take to him.

Any word on a buy back clause?
I like to see them when we let a youngster with potential go

I was surprised when I first heard he could be off to Rangers. He was one of our most promising Academy graduates. I can only think that there were concerns over his injury record. Hope he does well at Rangers.
