New Rangers signing Jordan Rossiter says he watched his new side’s Scottish Cup semi-final victory over Celtic and felt he would be a good fit for Mark Warburton’s men, Herald Scotland reports.
Rossiter has opted to join the Gers from Liverpool in a deal reportedly worth around £250,000.
The tough-tackling midfielder grew up as an Everton fan and was a big admirer of Rangers number two David Weir, yet his main reason for trading Anfield for Ibrox was because of manager Mark Waburton.
Rossiter admits he has been impressed with Rangers on the few occasions he has seen them this season, and told reporters he came to a sudden conclusion during their semi-final cup win over Celtic.
“I have watched quite a few of the games this season; I watched the semi-final against Celtic which was brilliant. The football he played that day is something I can really fit into and when I get my chance I will show what I can do, it’s really good football and exciting times,” Rossiter told Herald Scotland.
“Playing in midfield I like to get tackles in, try and play forward as much as I can, get on the ball, control the game and hopefully the fans will see that and other things from me.”
The 19-year-old arrives at Ibrox boasting plenty of potential and natural ability in the middle of the park.
Rossiter made five appearances for Liverpool before joining Rangers and the Reds were seemingly keen for him to remain on Merseyside after offering the midfielder a new contract at the club.
Warburton’s ability to help develop players has certainly played a key factor in the England under-19 international’s decision, and Rangers fans can have reason to be excited to have him on the books.
Rossiter could play a key role as the Gers will look to challenge Celtic for the Scottish Premiership title next season.
