Return of Rossiter should have Dorrans and Halliday fearing for their places

Return of Rossiter should have Dorrans and Halliday fearing for their places

It’s been a solid start to the season for Rangers as Steven Gerrard has not only guided the club to second in the Scottish Premiership but also got the club through the Europa League Qualifying round. 

Despite a season of massive upheaval, the Rangers squad has played pretty well and the likes of Kyle Lafferty, Lassana Coulibaly, Ryan Kent and Joe Worrall have all fitted in seamlessly to the squad and have turned Rangers into genuine title contenders again.

With the new players playing so well, it will come as a welcome boost for Steven Gerrard to welcome back returning first-team players like Jordan Rossiter. The former Liverpool man has struggled to play for the club since making the move two years ago and suffered another injury setback over the summer. The midfielder made his return to action for the Rangers reserves against Motherwell and could play for the first-team in the Scottish Cup according to the Daily Record.

If he can stay injury free, the return of Rossiter could be a huge plus for Gerrard but for the likes of Graham Dorrans and Andy Halliday, he could well threaten their place in the team.

The Breakdown

While Halliday has made nine appearances for the club this season, when fit, Rossiter is a much better fit for the Gers midfield and could be a perfect partner for on loan Angers midfielder Lassan Coulibaly. Graham Dorrans, on the other hand, made an impressive cameo against Villareal in the Europa league but at 31 the midfielder is entering the twilight of his career and will have a tough battle to keep his place with Rossiter returning.
