Rangers were impressive last time out after they beat Hamilton 4-1 at the SuperSeal Stadium to continue their brilliant start in the SPL under Steven Gerrard.
And one player who impressed in particular was Jordan Rossiter with Gerrard since coming out to praise the 21-year-old following his return from injury and recall to the first team.
“We had a bounce game behind closed doors and he [Rossiter] was head and shoulders above most of those on the pitch,” Gerrard told the Evening Times.
“I’ve said to the players behind the scenes you’ve got to fight for a shirt and earn the chance to play. So if I don’t back that up with my decisions the players won’t believe in me or trust me.
“So Jordan earned that [on Sunday] and I thought he was very strong for his first showing in such a long time. I was very pleased with him. He’s a bright kid. Tactically he’s very astute. I can trust him to go in and do a job if and when I need to.”
Rossiter, who has less than two years to run on his current £10,000-a-week contract (via Daily Mail), has failed to kick on since lighting up Anfield in his Liverpool debut back in 2014 with injuries a large reason as to why.
But under Gerrard’s tutelage and should he be able to remain fit, Rossiter may be able to finally take that next step at Rangers.
Against Hamilton in the absence of Scott Arfield, Rossiter showed he was capable of coming in and doing a job and could be a promising option for Gerrard going forward.
