Injured Rossiter faces uncertainty, Rangers and Fleetwood deals ending

Injured midfielder Jordan Rossiter faces an uncertain future with his Rangers contract and loan deal at Fleetwood Town both approaching an end.

The former England youth international joined the Gers from Liverpool in 2016, arriving with a big reputation.

However, he’s experienced rotten luck since making the switch to Glasgow, picking up a series of serious injuries.

Biggest STAR Your Club Are Trying To SIGN This Month

Chronic calf and hamstring problems thwarted his attempts to establish himself at Ibrox, and he’s only managed a total of 16 appearances in all competitions.

A loan stint at Bury FC in 2019 saw him finally get some regular football, while a second stint away from the Gers with Fleetwood Town this season, began extremely well.

Rossiter cemented a spot in the League One side’s midfield under manager, Joey Barton, but unfortunately suffered a nasty knee injury in November.

The 23-year-old has been sidelined ever since and looks unlikely to feature again for the Trawlermen, even if the season is extended as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak.

As a result, Rossiter is likely to be uncertain about his future.

Just a matter of months remain on his Fleetwood deal with its expiry roughly coinciding with the end of his four-year Gers contract, which is reportedly worth around £10k-a-week [Daily Mail].

It’s tough for a crocked player to sell himself to a new club, especially when they have an extensive history of injury problems.

Yet, Rossiter is a very talented operator who shone in the EFL over the first half of the season.

Hopefully, he can use the next few months to step up his rehab, and while it may be hard for him to land as lucrative and lengthy a deal as he was afforded at Rangers, surely he won’t be a free agent for long before a club takes a gamble on him.
