Three Rangers players who’ll get more opportunities in busy December

Rangers have used squad rotation well so far this season, with Gerrard using no fewer than 28 players already. It’s clear Rangers players will get their chance under the manager.

There have been calls for consistency from fans but it’s been challenging to keep the same XI. Between injuries and squad rotation, a lot of the time Gerrard’s hand has been forced.

With no fewer than 11 games coming between now and the end of December, it could be forced again.

Here’s three players who’ll play a bigger role in this Rangers squad going forward.

Jordan Rossiter

Jordan Rossiter has been a bit part player his entire Rangers career. A talented youth prospect at Liverpool, it was a major coup when we snapped him up for £250k three seasons ago. Major injuries have held him back, but now, he’s fit and ready to contribute.

He’s also desperate to pay back the fans and club for their patience.

Borna Barisic

The Croatian international has been out of the team since September. The team have really missed him. Gerrard said this week that he’s a couple of games from returning and it could be a breath of fresh air.

It’s huge for Rangers. We’ve lacked balance since he’s been out the team and he will surely play a huge role in any success we have.

Fans are quite right to be excited to see what he brings to the team.

Ross McCrorie

Whether at centre back or in front of a back two, McCrorie has a bright future at Rangers. He has stumbled at times but shows a determination to have a a long term impact at the club which is refreshing. Even if he is anything but the finished article.

With plenty of games coming up, it’s a chance for the Scotland U21 captain to get more minutes under his belt. If he doesn’t step up in this telling period, he could be joining another one of the Rangers players on loan come January.
