Rangers midfielder Jordan Rossiter has had a nightmare with injuries since signing from Liverpool in 2016.
The former England youth international arrived with plenty of hype but has spent more time on the treatment table than the training pitch as a Rangers player.

After almost two seasons out, Rossiter has come through this campaign largely unscathed and is spending the final part of the season with Bury.

So far, Rossiter has come through without any injury and is slowly getting back to his best on the pitch.
When he returns to Ibrox in the summer, Gerrard faces a big decision over Rossiter’s future.

The midfielder will have a year left on his contract – but he can play a huge role for the Gers.

Like Ross McCrorie, Rossiter is perfect for the ‘firefighter’ role in midfield and sitting in front of the defence.
He’s never going to be the sort of player who dictates the tempo of a game but is an ideal choice to challenge McCrorie for a regular place.
Ryan Jack has been put in there at times this season but is much more effective when given some licence to push forward and try play through the lines.

Someone like Rossiter or McCrorie allows others to push forward and support the attackers while maintaining a good defensive presence.
At only 21, Rossiter still has his whole career ahead of him.
If he can prove his fitness over the next few months at Bury then there’s a player who could be a massive asset to Rangers next season.
