Troubled Rangers midfielder Jordan Rossiter has said he wants to repay the fans who kept the faith with him during his injury hell.

The 21 year old has had a variety of injuries hold him back since he joined Rangers just over two years ago. He’s now in his third season with the club but has only made 13 appearances.

Speaking after the Hamilton match, which Rossiter started, he spoke about his relationship with new manager Steven Gerrard.

“He’s been brilliant and to put me in today after a few games,” said Rossiter. “He has faith in me and I want to repay him and the fans who are still behind me.

“It’s been a tough road and I just want to pay everyone back who has been with me all the way.”

The midfielder also took the opportunity to say he was here to prove himself at Rangers. Rossiter’s career has been stop start so far, but it is at Ibrox where he sees his future. The former England youth captain described it as the biggest place he’ll play at in his career.

“Yes – 100% I’m out to prove myself,” said Rossiter. “I want to be a Rangers player and I can’t see anywhere bigger than here in my career.

“I’m lucky to still be here after my injury problems. I can’t lie – my development has been hampered by the injuries but I’m still only 21 and I want to be here and improve.“
