Glasgow Rangers’ new boy, Jordan Rossiter will not join up with his new Ibrox teammates until July, due to international commitments, according to the club's official site

Rangers signed Rossiter from Liverpool earlier this summer, and his arrival has created great excitement around the newly promoted Scottish Premiership side.

Rossiter was highly regarded at Liverpool, but the lure of regular first-team football at Rangers convinced him to make the move north of the border.

The youngster’s first chance to link up with his new Rangers teammates will come in America, but he will have a delayed arrival.

Rangers are set to travel across the Atlantic tomorrow, as they prepare to step up their pre-season preparations for the new campaign.

New boys Josh Windass, Matt Crooks, Clint Hill, Niko Kranjcar and Matt Gilks are all set to travel with Rangers’ squad, but Rossiter and Joey Barton will not join up until next month.

Rossiter is currently with England’s under-19 squad, while Barton’s contract at Ibrox does not commence until July 1st.
