JORDAN ROSSITER was left star struck when he met assistant manager David Weir ahead of his move to Rangers. The midfielder has penned a four-year deal with the Light Blues and will head north of the border in the summer ahead of the new Premiership campaign.

Rossiter joined Liverpool when he was six and made five appearances for the Reds first team but the boyhood Everton supporter is delighted to be working alongside one of his heroes at Ibrox.

“I was an Everton fan so growing up I would watch Davie Weir,” he said. “I had a season ticket for five or six years and I used to go with my dad and Davie Weir was captain so it was good to finally meet him, I was a bit star struck when I first saw him!

“Jurgen Klopp was a brilliant manager and what you see in the media is exactly what he’s like, he’s helped me loads this season and tried to improve me. But I am looking forward to working with Mark Warburton just as much as I was with Klopp.

“Mark Warburton is a great manager and he has done fantastically this season and in the other jobs he has had. I am sure he is a manager who is going to improve me in the future, as well as all the other backroom staff like David Weir and I am really looking forward to working with them.”

The capture of Rossiter is a significant coup for Rangers and the move will cost the champions just £250,000 as Liverpool receive compensation for bringing the 19-year-old through their youth ranks.

The midfielder arrives in Glasgow having been tipped for a bright future in the game and he is confident he can make his mark in Warburton’s side as the Gers prepare for a shot at Premiership glory.

“I have watched quite a few of the games this season; I watched the semi-final against Celtic which was brilliant,” Rossiter said. “The football he played that day is something I can really fit into and when I get my chance I will show what I can do, it’s really good football and exciting times. Playing in midfield I like to get tackles in, try and play forward as much as I can, get on the ball, control the game and hopefully the fans will see that and other things from me.”
