Rangers-bound midfielder says he had a season ticket at Everton

Jordan Rossiter, who will leave Liverpool for Ibrox side Rangers in the summer transfer window, says that he grew up as an Everton fan.

Rangers-bound midfielder Jordan Rossiter has revealed on the club’s official website that he is an Everton fan.

Rossiter will move to Rangers in the summer transfer window after leaving Premier League outfit Liverpool.

The 19-year-old midfielder joined the Reds back in 2003, but he has revealed that he is a fan of their Merseyside rivals Everton.

The England Under-19 international has also recounted how he used to watch Rangers assistant manager David Weir when he was playing for Everton.

“I was an Everton fan so growing up I would watch Davie Weir,” Rossiter told Rangers’ official website. “I had a season ticket for five or six years and I used to go with my Dad and Davie Weir was captain so it was good to finally meet him, I was a bit star struck when I first saw him!”

Rossiter seems excited to be able to work with his childhood Weir at Rangers next season.

The youngster is a very talented midfield, and he will now hope to continue his progress and development under Rangers manager Mark Warburton.

Warburton has a good track record of working with talented young players, and the Englishman will be looking to get the best out of Rossiter in the coming years.

Rangers, who have won the Scottish Championship and the Scottish Challenge Cup this season, will take on Hibernian in the final of the Scottish Cup at Hamden Park in Glasgow this month.
