Rangers have snapped up Liverpool midfielder Jordan Rossiter.

Liverpool youngster Jordan Rossiter has lined up alongside Rangers number two David Weir for a photo having completed a switch to the Glasgow club, signing a four-year deal as per the club's official website.

The 19-year-old’s contract was set to expire at Anfield this summer and despite being offered a new contract on Merseyside, the talented midfielder will now be lining up at Ibrox next season.

As mentioned in a report by Sky Sports, Rossiter travelled north of the border on Friday morning for further talks with Rangers boss Mark Warburton as he secured his switch to Glasgow.

The compensation is expected to be in the region of £250,000, a figure much lower than what Liverpool could have received had Rossiter decided to sign for another English club, as reported by the Daily Mail.

Warburton has worked wonders at Ibrox since joining Gers, guiding the club to the Scottish Premiership while winning the Petrofac Cup and reaching the final of the Scottish Cup.

The former Brentford man has built up a reputation for improving young players, and his team’s over the years have played the sort of fluid football which helps get the best out of creative stars.

Rossiter has a bright future in the game, and under Warburton’s guidance he will get better and better. As shown by the picture, the tough-tackling midfielder seems right at home at Rangers alongside Warburton’s number two and he will become one of the first signings as a top-flight club once more.
