There was good news for Rangers fans from EFL League Two on Saturday afternoon.

Loanee, Jordan Rossiter, made his first start for Bury.

Before leaving Ibrox temporarily at the end of last month, he had featured just five times for the first team under Steven Gerrard.

Since arriving from Liverpool in 2016, various injuries have hampered his progress, rendering him unavailable for an incredible number of matches. 

This season, however, he has been largely fit and available.


Yet, the number of midfield options available, ensured he found it difficult to get a look in.


The whole purpose of this loan stint elsewhere, then, is to get minutes under his belt.

He made his debut last weekend as a half-time substitute in a 1-1 draw at home to Crawley Town.

Today, both he and his adopted side went one better.

They secured an important three points away at Morecambe, moving The Shakers to within four points of League Two leaders, Lincoln City.

Pleasingly, Rossiter oversaw the whole thing from central midfield.

It’s the first time he has completed 90 minutes this season.

Hopefully, there’ll be plenty more of where that came from, between now and the end of the campaign.
