With the end of the season fast approaching, Steven Gerrard will be scouring the market for potential additions to his Rangers squad.
He has already said he’s looking for an injection of quality, particularly in the final third [The Scotsman].
However, the resurgence of one player already on the books will make it seem as though he’s already made a new acquisition.
£405k-rated midfielder [Transfermarkt], Jordan Rossiter, is finally fit and performing.
He arrived at Ibrox from Liverpool in 2016 with a considerable reputation. After all, he had been the Reds’ youth team skipper.
However, he’s still yet to make his mark as a Ger, missing an incredible amount of matches through injury.
In fact, until the last few months, he had yet to establish himself at all as a senior footballer.
Bury loan move a stroke of genius
Swapping the SPL for EFL League Two may have been a bit of an eye-raiser, but it’s allowed him to play consistently like he never has before.
On Saturday, he made his eleventh league appearance for the Shakers, which is remarkably more than his cumulative total for the Gers.
Therefore, there’s finally been an opportunity to assess the asset Rangers have on their books.
What the recently turned 22-year-old lacks in size, he makes up for in tenacity.
Going into next season, he might be just the sort of player Gerrard needs in the big games. That needle in middle of the park is a key attribute for any side.
Yet, he offers more than just aggression in the tackle. There have been no goals to date in his stint at Bury, but he’s shown a range of passing which would also go down well at Ibrox.

It’s a big boost that he looks like staying fit for long enough to offer something next season.
I’m sure plenty of fans are looking forward to finally seeing exactly what Rossiter is about, too.
