Gerrard provides curious update on injury absentee...

Steven Gerrard has extended Jordan Rossiter’s injury spell by a fortnight, despite some outlets reporting it as good news.

The holding midfielder, a standout during pre-season, suffered a ankle injury just prior to the program’s first friendly at Auchenhowie v TNS, and has been in recovery mode since.

Gerrard initially stated on the 11th of last month that Rossiter ‘might be out longer than Dorrans’ and that has been sadly extended by at least another two weeks as concerns persist over the ex-Liverpool player’s fitness.

With Dorrans’ own fitness impossible to currently gauge without the imminent scan results, we can only hope Rossiter’s two week extension is the final closing straight of the unreal injury nightmare this potentially special young player is going through.

In fairness, his latest knock is pure bad luck, and is in no way related to the earlier problems which so dramatically derailed his first two seasons at Ibrox, but we have to say if he and Dorrans could achieve fitness, and be selected in their proper positions (Dorrans would be pretty useful for the ‘Iniesta’ slot at the apex of midfield Gerrard likes to use) they could save quite a few millions in the transfer market.

But what would you readers do with them?
