20-year-old Jordan Rossiter has found himself frozen out at Rangers this season, yet to make an make an appearance in all competitions this term, and needs to look for a loan spell away from Ibrox if he is to kickstart his Rangers career.

The 15-time England youth international joined Rangers in the summer of 2016 for a £250,000 compensation fee but has struggled to break into the first team up in Scotland.

Rossiter made his first-team debut for The Reds as a 17-year-old, starting a league cup fixture with Middlesbrough in 2014, but after failing to secure a regular spot in the first team squad at Anfield, the Liverpool-born midfielder made the switch to Rangers, signing a four-year deal in 2016.

However, since joining Rangers, Rossiter has made just six appearances for the Scottish side and should be looking at a loan move away from the club in January.

With the likes of Graham Dorrans, Niko Kranjcar and Josh Windass ahead of him, the talented midfielder is unlikely to get many opportunities in the first team this season. 

A loan move to a lower mid-table side in the SPL would do Rossiter the world of good, accustoming the youngster to the physicality of the Scottish game, whilst giving him valuable game time.
