Bury FC boss Ryan Lowe, has offered some high praise for Jordan Rossiter, as quoted by the Scottish Herald.

The 22-year-old midfielder joined the Shakers in January, in search of game time.

He certainly got it, too, making 17 appearances and helping his adopted side to automatic promotion.

The ex-Liverpool player has had desperate luck with injuries since arriving at Ibrox in 2016. However, Lowe maintains that based on what he saw, you wouldn’t know it.

“Jordan was fit as a fiddle when he came in,” he said, as quoted by the Scottish Herald. “He was subbed on in the first game at half-time and after that, he didn’t look back.”

“He was in the team every week, he trained every day and didn’t miss anything. There were times when I wanted to rest Jordan because I felt he had played so many games and I was asking him if he was OK. He said ‘I’m fine’ and he wanted to be in every training session and every game.

“I think a lot of credit has to go to Jordan for his determination and he must have picked up about ten Man of the Match awards in the 17 games that he played for us. He was instrumental, he was terrific and what a lad, a real hard-working character.

 

“Jordan is still only a baby, he turned 22 while he was with us, and he is a phenomenal player and a great lad,”

Verdict

This is about as ringing an endorsement as any player could hope to get.

Lowe highlights Rossiter’s ability, professionalism, character, and fitness levels as all being impressive.

Clearly, he was a standout at EFL League Two level. The question is, whether or not he can establish himself back at Rangers, next season.

He faces heaps of competition in the middle of the park. Perhaps, just like with Bury, though, all he needs is a small opening and he will make a spot his own.
