Former Rangers midfielder Jordan Rossiter looks to finally be getting his career back on track after an injury-hit spell at Ibrox saw the ex-Liverpool kid fail to live up to his billing as the new Steven Gerrard.

Rossiter arrived at Ibrox with plenty of hype but was almost immediately injured, kicking off a series of problems that limited his appearances to 16 across four years in Glasgow.

His final 18 months at the club was spent out on loan with stints at Bury and Fleetwood Town, and is the latter where he is now playing regularly with his injury problems looking to be very much in the past.

The Cod Army announced a new contract for the 24-year-old as he closes in on his 50th appearance, having been a feature in the side since initially moving on loan in July 2019 before making it permanent 12 months later.

 

His new deal keeps him at Highbury until 2023 and with Fleetwood still in the hunt for a playoff place there’s still the possibility of a fantastic, albeit unlikely, end to the season.

While Rangers fans never got to see much of Rossiter, he’s still held in good regard by fans and it will be pleasing that he’s finally got over his injuries and is starting to carve out a solid career for himself.
