Rangers fans here in the Tavern will be over the moon with news that hit the surface this morning, as one of their star players has returned to full training.
After Graeme Murty was appointed the manager at Ibrox for the rest of the season, fans felt he’d got his just reward for all the hard work he’d put in for the club. And, their recent run of four games unbeaten just goes to highlight the magic he’s producing in Glasgow.
Indeed, as if things couldn’t get any better for Rangers, they just did. As according to a report in the Daily Record, midfielder Jordan Rossiter finally returned to full training at Auchenhowie yesterday.
For a youngster that’s suffered a torrid Gers career filled with injuries, the midfielder will be over the moon at the thought of playing football once again after only making 10 appearances for the club in 18 months.
Rossiter suffered a calf injury towards the start of the season that’s kept him out for five months, to then be sent for further treatment on a long-running lower back injury that’s created another thorn in the player’s career. Indeed, this will be great news for Graeme Murty to have a potential future star back in the side, but that is only if he decides the injury-prone midfielder is worth the price that comes with the treatment he’s liable to.
However, one man who won’t be fussed about Rossiter’s current injury problems is Wigan manager Paul Cook, as the lifelong Liverpool fan is looking to snatch the 20-year-old from the clutches of Rangers if they decide to cut their current losses.
There’s no doubt that Rossiter has the potential to be a special player, it’s just all down to whether the injury curse can be lifted off the Englishman’s head with all the lingering problems.
A player that Rangers will be happy to see a return for, but if he was to sustain another injury then you’d have to say it could be the end of his time at Ibrox.
