Rangers have snapped up Liverpool midfielder Jordan Rossiter.

New Rangers signing Jordan Rossiter has told the club's official website that their history was a huge factor in choosing to sign for the club, despite alleged interest from Premier League clubs.

Having already landed Accrington duo Matt Crooks and Josh Windass on pre-contract agreements, Gers boss Mark Warburton has now swooped to land another midfielder.

19-year-old Rossiter came up through the ranks at his hometown club Liverpool, and having made five first-team appearances and even earned comparisons to Steven Gerrard, he was massively rated at Anfield.

However, with his contract expiring this summer, Rossiter has decided to leave Merseyside and head up to Scotland, signing for Rangers on a four-year contract.

It's an interesting move for the central midfielder, as the Daily Mail reported that Arsenal, Tottenham and Udinese were all keen on Rossiter, but he chose Rangers and a reunion with his former Liverpool academy director Frank McParland.

Now, Rossiter has been speaking about his move on the Rangers official website, and claims that he chose a move to Ibrox because of the history of the club, suggesting that whilst people in England don't necessarily understand the size of Rangers, he and his family do.

Rossiter added that, with a history of winning trophies, he wants to add more silverware to their cabinet during his time in Glasgow, with Warburton already adding the Scottish Championship title and Petrofac Training Cup this season.

"I chose Rangers because of the history it has got, it is a massive club and I don’t think people realise down south how big a club it really is," said Rossiter. "I think I have always known and so have my family and it is just a great opportunity to carry on learning my trade."

"Rangers is a club which wins trophies and winning trophies would be brilliant, they have two already and are going for a third next week so it is a club that is always going to win things and next season, hopefully, I can help with that," he added.
