Report: Liverpool wanted £8m for Jordan Rossiter, Rangers move will cost £250,000

Paisley Gateway

Rangers will reportedly pay just £250,000 for Jordan Rossiter, when Liverpool wanted £8m.

According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool would have demanded £8m in compensation for midfielder Jordan Rossiter - but his move to Rangers will earn them just £250,000.

Rossiter, 19, was born and bred in Liverpool, and having signed for the Reds at the age of just six, the midfielder has been making his way up through the ranks at Anfield.

After one Capital One Cup performance last term, Rossiter has played four games in all competitions this season, but has recently been sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Many Liverpool fans have been concerned about Rossiter's situation, as his contract expires at the end of the season - and now, he looks set to leave Anfield for a surprise move to join Rangers.

The Liverpool Echo reported earlier this week that Rossiter will be signing for Rangers this summer, with head of recruitment Frank McParland swooping to land a player he worked with during his days as Liverpool's academy director.

Now, the Daily Mail report that, despite interest from Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Udinese, Rossiter is heading to Ibrox in a deal that will cost the Gers just £250,000 in compensation, with Scottish clubs able to pay much less in compensation than English clubs can.

In fact, it's even claimed that Liverpool would have demanded a whopping £8m for Rossiter had he agreed to join an English club, but his move to Glasgow will earn the Reds a paltry £250,000.

With Rossiter seemingly bound for Ibrox now, this could be one of the major coups of Mark Warburton's time in charge of the club, as central midfielder Rossiter has earned comparisons to Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard - and if he gets even close to that level, £250,000 will be a bargain for Rangers.
