Motherwell have joined the race to sign frozen-out Jordan Rossiter on loan, it has today emerged, following Dundee United and Sunderland’s well-documented interest.
Steve Robinson is looking to add quality to his midfield and current reports are he’d consider Rossiter a useful addition to his side, and he would mark the second fringe Rangers player to go out on loan to an SPL side this season (Hardie to Livi).
The former England youth international is heavily in demand – manager Steven Gerrard has made it clear that he is not in his plans moving forward this season, despite loving the kid, and all parties concerned seek a move away from Rangers till the summer to get the anchor man some serious game time.
For his part Hardie has excelled at the Toni Macaroni, and we know just how good Rossiter actually is if he can stay fit, but he’s simply not been able to, and this season finally just about having achieved that has found himself completely down the pecking order.
Motherwell’s gain would be Rangers’ loss for this season but like Hardie Rossiter would see this as a way to get minutes in, match sharpness in and a real fist at a first team Rangers place next season.
More as it develops.
