Rangers midfielder in loan crisis as club fail to pay wages on time

On-loan Rangers midfielder Jordan Rossiter has been caught in the middle of a financial crisis with League Two side Bury after they failed to pay their wages on time for March.
The Gers midfielder has made a huge impression at Gigg Lane since heading south in January but recent developments will cast a shadow over his time at the club.

Shakers chairman Steve Dale admitted that the Bury board were working to resolve the issue but it will undoubtedly have had a big hit on morale within the dressing room.
“The chairman and the board of directors remain fully committed to resolving the situation as quickly as possible, to ensure that the club can move forward and maintain our push for promotion,”
Dale said in a statement released to the BBC.

Rossiter is reported to earn up to £10,000 per week at Ibrox and the Gers will be covering the vast majority while he’s on loan at Bury but it can’t be a pleasant situation for anyone involved.
With the Shakers sitting third in League Two, they’ll be desperate that this doesn’t derail their promotion bid as they enter the final run of games.

While the former Liverpool youngster is due back at Ibrox this summer to see out the final year of his contract, many of his Bury team-mates will have serious concerns about their future at Gigg Lane.

Since moving to Ibrox, Rossiter has endured a nightmare time with injuries and – financial difficulties notwithstanding – has seemed to really benefit from his time playing regularly for the first time in years.
