JORDAN Rossiter could be in contention for another Rangers appearance against Kilmarnock on Wednesday evening and he said if given the chance he must grab it with both hands.
It would be the midfielder’s third appearance of the season and after two years of injury hell since joining the Gers he is hoping this month can be the turning point in his Ibrox career.
The 21-year-old started the Light Blues’ last league game, the first Premiership away win of the season at Hamilton, and wants the opportunity to do the same when Kilmarnock visit tomorrow evening.
Rangers are looking to bounce back after semi-final defeat in the League Cup just two days ago against Aberdeen and Rossiter is predicting a reaction.
Speaking to the media Rossiter said: “We all know how disappointing Sunday was and as the gaffer said we have a great group of lads here.
“We just have to go out tomorrow and take it out on Kilmarnock and hopefully go and get the three points.
“It has been a long road back to full recovery but it has been brilliant just to be back in with the lads and involved again on Sunday.
“It was great to be out there on a big occasion but I know I have a long way to go myself to get back to my full match sharpness.
“There is no hiding it I have had a lot of set-backs in the few years I have been at Rangers but I am in a really good place now, physically and mentally.
“I just have to keep doing the right things on the pitch, as well as off it to make sure I stay available for the gaffer.”
Rossiter returned to action under Steven Gerrard for the first time in September, during a League Cup win over Ayr United.
It was his first appearance since he scored on his previous return, in the final game of the 2017/18 season away to Hibernian.
He continued: “The gaffer showed faith and put me in against Hamilton and he has got me back involved, I just want to repay everybody who has helped me over these few years.
“I just need to stay available for selection and there clearly a lot of competition for places, which is what you’d expect when you’re at a club like Rangers.
“I just need to stay fit, stay strong and when my chance comes hopefully I take it.”
