Liverpool midfielder flies out to complete shock cross-border transfer

According to reports from Sky Sports, Liverpool youngster Jordan Rossiter has flown out to Glasgow to complete a shock transfer to Rangers.

The 19-year-old has made five senior appearances for the Anfield outfit, including a Premier League substitute outing against Arsenal back in August.

But it appears the tough-tackling midfielder – once compared to Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard – has decided to continue his development away from Anfield.

Former Liverpool chief scout Frank McParland now works as head of recruitment at Rangers and has reportedly given manager Mark Warburton a glowing endorsement of the prodigious starlet.

That has obliged the Ibrox outfit to act quickly, with Rossiter’s Liverpool contract due to expire at the end of the season. He’s now in Glasgow to thrash out the terms of a free transfer to the Scottish Premiership side.

Because it will count as a cross-border transfer, Rangers will only have to pay around £250k in compensation.
