Rangers midfielder Jordan Rossiter has admitted that he’s still playing “catch-up” after missing two years of football through injury – but insists that he’s been fit for almost a year and hopes it can continue for a long time.

The former Liverpool youngster has had a torrid time at Ibrox with injuries but looks to finally be over them as he impressed on loan at Fleetwood Town this season.

The midfielder is confident that he knows how to manage his body know and what he doesn’t “need to do” as he enters the final months of his Gers contract.

“I had a really tough time with injuries, everybody knows that. I missed quite a lot of games and I’m playing catch-up at the minute,” Rossiter told Fleetwood Today.

“I know my body now, I know what I need to do, what I don’t need to do.


“I’ve been fit for about a year now, so long may it continue.”


When Rossiter arrived in Scotland he had plenty of hype surrounding him so it’s been a shame that he’s never had a chance to live up to that.

With less than a year left on his Rangers contract, it seems unlikely that he ever will get an opportunity to show what he can do on a consistent basis at Ibrox.

After finally getting himself fit again though, hopefully, he can kick on and carve out a good career somewhere after a nightmare couple of years.
