Rossiter Joins the Shakers

31 January 2019

Rangers midfielder Jordan Rossiter has joined the club on a loan deal until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old came through the youth ranks at Liverpool, and scored on his debut in a 2-2 draw with Middlesbrough in the Carabao Cup at Anfield.

The following season, he made an appearance in a 0-0 draw with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League, as well as a further three appearances in the Europa League; two of which he started.

A move to Rangers on a four-year deal materialised in May 2016. Since joining the Gers, Jordan has made appearances in the Scottish League Cup, Europa League and the Scottish Premiership.

This season, Jordan has appeared for Rangers in their 4-0 win over Ayr in the Scottish League Cup, as well as four appearances in the Scottish Premiership. His most recent game was on Boxing Day, as Rangers and Hibernian played out a 1-1 draw at Ibrox.

Speaking of his new arrival, Ryan Lowe said: “We needed that extra body in midfield. With Barjonas going back to Rangers and Dawson being injured, we needed that extra cover.

“Firstly, I'd like to thank Rangers and Steven Gerrard for letting it happen. I'd also like to thank Jordan's agent, who has worked hard to get this done.

“I know that people always say, 'he could have gone here and he could have gone there', but he did turn down two League One clubs and two Scottish Premiership clubs after watching us on Saturday against Lincoln; he said he wanted to be a part of it.

“I didn't think I could get a Jordan Rossiter to be honest with you, so fair play to the Chairman and the Board for backing me on it.

“He's going to be an exciting talent. He's an exciting player that you would probably say is above our level, but he had the guts and determination to come and play for a League Two team. He had to be the right fit for us, which he is. He's got the quality levels that our lads have got and that was important.

“Ultimately, when you have a Scottish Premiership player, that has also played in the Premier League for Liverpool and has had good development and grounding, saying that he wanted to come and play for Bury Football Club, well I was astonished by it.

“The minute I met him I couldn't wait to get the deal done. He's a big asset for us, and he knows that he has to work hard in the team. He hasn't played a lot of football, but we'll manage him the right way to make sure that he helps us get to where we want to get to.”

Sporting Director Lee Dykes added “We are delighted to sign Jordan Rossiter on loan until the end of the season. He’s a great addition to an already strong squad, but he’s somebody who offers us slightly different attributes to what we already have.

“We must thank Mark Allan and Rangers for their help in making this transfer happen and I look forward to watching Jordan play his football at Gigg Lane very soon.”
