Rossiter loan confirmed

The problem is finances. The managers of these clubs will often say they can't even compete financially with clubs in English League 2.
I agree money wise they are well ahead but honestly quality wise its so over rated and poor. They slag our league enough, try watching a championship game one evening.... its honestly enough to put you asleep!

Too many people writing him off, yet bigging up Doc at the same time.

Bury are sitting near the top of League 2 and Shrewsbury are near the bottom of League 1.

There will be little or no difference in the standard of football they're playing.

Greg's form for us before his loan was very poor, both end of last season and start of this.

He's went away, worked on his weaknesses and has had regular games and done well mainly.

Jordan is slightly younger than Greg and at least deserves the same chance before we judge him.

Let's wait until the summer before judging him.

I really like both players and want them both to come back to Rangers and be successful in our first team.

If you are asking me who has the more 'talent' and more potential to go further in the game then it would have to be Rossiter for me. But I hope to see both using their time constructively in order to come back and let Rangers see the benefits. The last thing I would want to do is write Rossiter off. Proper footballer who has all the tools. Just needs to kick start his whole career and get it back on track..

Think it's better we cut our losses and let him go. He's probably on a high wage and clearly has major fitness issues

Some of the responses on this thread are utterly shameful. There is a huge reason we have lost some cracking posters from days gone by, its beyond pathetic.

Good luck to the kid and hope his move is what everyone needs.

Not really sure what level people were expecting him to go.

It's a good move for him IMO. Lots of games to play in a competitive league.

He started well but fans say he is inconsistent.
And that's the key to making it a a high level.

The old saying, "consistency is key" is massive. If players want to go far in the game and avoid end up at a diddy club then they need to be 'on it' all the time. As well as having the talent, it's more a question of attitude, commitment and focus. Ease off any of this and you just become 'another player'.

IMO Greg has a good attitude and work ethic, so I am hoping that he comes back and 'makes it' with us.

Rossiter’s lucky that anyone is willing to take him on loan, I’m shocked that people are criticising the standard of Bury’s level.
You're correct, mate.

People are a bit delusional over Rossiter. He was a highly rated youth who's been ravaged by injury. The reality is he's only played about 5 first team games in 3 years and there's absolutely not a queue of teams willing to take that gamble on.

Really hope Jordan can break into the team and prove he can play a run of games but the jury is very much still out.

Good luck to the lad, had a shocking run of injuries so here’s to hoping that this move will be the making of him and come back and give our manager a selection headache

Some of the comments on here are absolutely ridiculous.

How many times do people need it explained to them that you can’t just “cut your losses” with a player and why the f*ck are they even mentioning it in a thread confirming a loan deal for him to try and string some games together?

Cretins.

St Mirren, Dundee, Hamilton, Motherwell, Livingston... All pish.
Two of which drew with us, one beat us, and the other two we struggled against away from home and it took goals in the dying stages of the game to secure the win.

I agree with what your saying but any time I see these teams mentioned it boils my piss that the points we’ve dropped to this dross!!!!

I think because we got Rossiter when he was so young, people sometimes forget that he's only 21.

If he was 24/25 and people were saying write him off I could understand it, but there's a player in there and this loan gives us a chance to see if we'll ever see the best of him.

Exactly.

English club. Much closer to Liverpool. I think this is a excellent decision

The boy needs games. End of story. If he gets to also see more of his friends and family at the same time, even better

Really hope he gets loads of game time and kicks on
Im maybe clutching at straws but if as you say he sees more of his family/friends it may help him as he has had a hard time of it with his injuries and being pretty young and far from home might not have helped.Hopefully he kicks on and makes a career from himself(hopefully good enough for us) had a terrible time with injuries.

Some absolute ignorant nonsense posted on this thread.

"Ravaged by injuries". False.
He'd a mechanics problem with his body while he was still growing.
It wasn't an injury and he's been clear of the problem for 11 months now.

"Cut our losses".
Why would we do that with a 22 year old with a great pedigree, who' was rated higher than Doc by Gerrard early season?

Why not at least wait and see how he performs at Bury for 4 months before writing him off?

Surely he deserves that chance?

Spot on. I like the guy and only want him to do well.
Best of British to our Jordan.

He's got all the attributes to be a great player, if he can just stay injury free for the rest of the season. I'm sure he can come back to us fitter, stronger to show us what he's got.

Doubt we will see Kamara before the summer then.

Suprised Wallace is still here and want Pena to move on asap

Would of liked atleast one more but got to be happy with the window
I reckon SG could make something decent out of Pena, and Wallace is always a half decent back up.

Correct.

People still think he’s this (ridiculously) hyped up England unders captain and a shining light in the Liverpool academy.

I hope he proves me wrong, but it looks like he’ll go on to be just another player who done well at unders levels and played a few UEFA/League cup games for a big club before disappearing back to the lower leagues. Injuries have taken away some of the most important years of his career.

He’s so far behind 3/4/5 of our midfielders just now, I feel bad for him.

He’s been fit for a while but the gaffer clearly just doesn’t fancy him. We can’t cut our losses, that’s nonsense talk, but we can hope he does well at Bury and someone takes him off us.

I love these comments. Jordan Rossitter is fully fit as has been for months.

"Cut our losses"

So pay him his next 18 months worth of wages so he can go somewhere else, maybe get a run of form and fulfil his potential meaning we miss out on either a cracking player or decent money, absolutely stupid.

How can anyone genuinely say that Rossiter still has ‘cracking potential’ though?

That’s as contrived as the ‘cut our losses’ line that people roll out.

Not convinced he is suited to the hussle & bussle of that league but better than him sitting on his backside with us.

Could either be the making or the breaking of him.

Seems to be loads of hype for Rossiter on here, is there games (or a game) i can go back and watch where he’s shown something? ....genuine question not a sarcastic comment as I’ve only seen him play once

Good luck to him.
Hope he impresses and either Bury buy him from us or someone else does.
Its just not going to happen for him here
