Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has now named his Europa League squad for the Group Stage battle, but midfielder Jordan Rossiter is a notable omission.

It’s fair to say the 21-year-old has had a horrible time at Ibrox since his arrival from Liverpool as a free agent back in the summer of 2016 and despite the highly rated nature of his arrival at the club and the performances we have seen from him when fit, injury has limited him to only seven starting appearances and four substitute showings since.

He’s yet to take to the pitch under Gerrard this season and in 2017/18 he only appeared five times, scoring his maiden club goal in the 5-5 draw with Hibernian last May.

Whether his omission is fitness related and the club are taking an extremely patient approach with him now is food for thought, the following fans on social media believe it is an indication to his future as many thought he would thrive following the manager’s arrival.

His current ankle injury was only supposed to keep him out of the FC Shkupi clash although no firm time frame was given, so whether there have been complications or whether it was being downplayed at the time remains to be seen.
