‘Phenomenal’ Jordan Rossiter Ready for Rangers, Says Bury Boss Ryan Lowe

‘Phenomenal’ Jordan Rossiter Ready for Rangers, Says Bury Boss Ryan Lowe

Jordan Rossiter is ready to make a big impact at Rangers next season, according to Bury manager Ryan Lowe.

The central midfielder has spent the second-half season on-loan from Ibrox at the English League Two side and has made himself into a fan favourite at Gigg Lane.

The 22-year-old has been besieged by a variety of injuries since joining Rangers from Liverpool three years ago but he’s managed to play in 17 matches for Bury since his temporary move during the January transfer window, and played a crucial role in Bury winning promotion.

And now Lowe reckons he could be about to make a similar impact at Rangers next season, telling The Herald : “Jordan was fit as a fiddle when he came in.

“He was subbed on in the first game at half-time and after that he didn’t look back.

“He was in the team every week, he trained every day and didn’t miss anything. He was phenomenal and, for a guy who has had injuries and niggles, for me to get him on the pitch week in, week out was great.

“There were times when I wanted to rest Jordan because I felt he had played so many games and I was asking him if he was OK. He said ‘I’m fine’ and he wanted to be in every training session and every game.

“I think a lot of credit has to go to Jordan for his determination and he must have picked up about ten man of the match awards in the 17 games that he played for us.

“He was instrumental, he was terrific and what a lad, a real hard-working character.

“Obviously at Rangers, Jordan was desperate to play for them. I don’t know what his full injury record was before he came to me, but he was fit, very fit, when he came to us and maybe a bit unfortunate that he didn’t get into Stevie’s plans.

“But there are quality players around and it is difficult at a club like Rangers. Jordan just wanted to play football, he was desperate to play. He couldn’t wait to come and play for us.

“For me, the only way for Jordan Rossiter now is upwards.”

He might still be in his early 20s, but surely next season will be seen as something of a make-or-break campaign for Rossiter in Rangers’ iconic light blue jersey?

What do you think his chances are of making it big in the Scottish Premiership next season?
