Rangers are reportedly hoping to parade Jordan Rossiter as their latest new signing this week.

According to the Daily Mail, Rangers are planning to unveil Liverpool teenager Jordan Rossiter as their newest signing this week.

The Gers have won promotion to the Scottish Premiership, and whilst manager Mark Warburton has worked wonders in his first year in charge, he will still need new signings to succeed in the top flight.

Accrington duo Matt Crooks and Josh Windass are arriving this summer having penned pre-contract agreements, but Warburton is set to land another midfielder in the form of Liverpool's Jordan Rossiter.

The Daily Mail report that Rangers have agreed a deal with Rossiter, and are planning to parade him as their newest signing at some point in the next few days.

Rossiter, 19, has come up through the ranks at hometown club Liverpool having joined them at the age of just six, and he's already made a total of five first-team appearances for the Reds.

However, with his contract at Anfield coming to an end this summer, the central midfielder is leaving Merseyside for regular first-team football with Rangers, who will have to pay just £250,000 in compensation as a result of being outside of England.

The Daily Mail's report shed some light on Rossiter's contract details, as he has agreed a four-year contract with Rangers and was persuaded to sign after hearing manager Warburton's plan for the future, having taken a tour of Ibrox over the weekend.

With the deal all but done, Rangers are allegedly planning to unveil Rossiter this week in a huge coup for the club, given that he has been compared to Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard by some.
