Midfielder misses HJK Helsinki friendly - good news for Rangers target?

Jordan Rossiter’s omission from yesterday’s HJK Helsinki friendly could be telling on two fronts.
Firstly, it follows up on Gerrard’s comments earlier in the week about the midfielder’s game time. Now fully fit after injury hell, the 21 year old needs minutes and regular action. With a very competitive midfield area at Ibrox, he’s unlikely to get the amount he needs.
Not that Rossiter isn’t a bright part of the club’s future.

But a lack of action has led Gerrard to say a loan move might be the best solution and provide Rossiter with a real opportunity. There were rumours in the week of a link to Dundee United.
The fact he didn’t play in the HJK Helsinki friendly suggest there are discussions being had somewhere. It was a game in which 23 Rangers players played, including numerous youth talents.

Rangers remain in hunt for Glen Kamara

Rangers also remain in the hunt to bring Glen Kamara to the club before January’s end. Dundee’s Finnish midfielder has signed a pre-contract at Rangers and Dee’s Manager Jim McIntyre has admitted Kamara wants to go.
Dundee had a move for Ross McCrorie to go on loan until the end of the season as a makeweight rebuffed earlier in the window.

Could they instead see the value in the services of Jordan Rossiter? His long-term injury history might make Dundee apprehensive, but if he can prove his fitness, the midfielder moving on loan to Dens Park for six months could be a solution that suits everyone.
And even if Rossiter isn’t Dundee bound, any loan-move for the Liverpool Academy graduate leaves room for Kamara to move into the squad. That’s if his deal is completed in this window of course. That could be closer than we think.
Glen Kamara was left out of Dundee’s Scottish Cup draw with Queen of the South at the weekend.
