Mark Warburton raves about Rangers' new signing as Jordan Rossiter seals Ibrox move

Rangers have snapped up Liverpool midfielder Jordan Rossiter.

Rangers have completed the signing of Liverpool's teenage midfielder Jordan Rossiter on a four-year contract, as confirmed above.

Having already landed Accrington Stanley duo Matt Crooks and Josh Windass on pre-contract agreements, Rangers have now swooped to add another midfielder in Rossiter.

The 19-year-old joined his hometown club Liverpool at the age of just six, and came up through the ranks at Anfield before making five first-team appearances for the club.

Rossiter has been dealing with an injury of late which has kept him out of the side, and now he has decided to leave Liverpool for good by signing for Rangers today.

Rossiter has penned a four-year deal at Ibrox, reuniting with his former academy boss Frank McParland, who is the head of recruitment for Mark Warburton's men.

Due to his contract running out at Liverpool, Rangers have been able to swoop in and sign Rossiter for just £250,000 compensation according to the Daily Mail, which is a huge blow for Liverpool, who would have demanded £8m in compensation from English clubs.

Now, Rangers boss Mark Warburton has been speaking about his newest signing, and raved about Rossiter as an 'outstanding young player', noting that he is technically gifted and a first-class character, with Warburton believing the youngster will be a huge player for the Gers.

"Jordan is an outstanding young England youth international who will be an excellent addition to the Rangers squad," said Warburton. "Technically gifted and game aware, he also has a first-class character and displays a tigerish desire to reach the highest levels of the game. It is a pleasure to welcome him to the club," he added.
