Jordan Bernard Rossiter (born 24 March 1997) is an English professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Fleetwood Town F.C., on loan from Rangers.

Rossiter came through the academy at his local club Liverpool where they described him as an "authoritative central midfield presence" with "an extensive passing repertoire with either foot and an eye for goal".[3]

Club career[edit]

Liverpool[edit]

Youth[edit]

Rossiter was born in Liverpool, Merseyside[4] and began playing football at the age of three or four in the Anfield junior league.[5] He joined his local side Liverpool when he was 6 years old and first represented the academy at U6 level.[5][6] He made his debut for Liverpool U18s on his 15th birthday.[7] Still aged 15 he made his U19 debut side in a NextGen series match against Inter Milan, during the game ex-Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler said Rossiter was a talent comparable to Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard.[8] For the 2013–14 season Rossiter, then 16, became a permanent fixture of Liverpool's U21 Premier League side and at the end of the season won Liverpool's Academy Player of the Year award.[9] In September 2014, Rossiter was named as captain of Liverpool under-19s for the 2014–15 UEFA Youth League.[10]

2013–14 season[edit]

During the 2013–14 season Rossiter trained regularly with the first team squad and was named on the bench for the first time for a Premier League match against Chelsea on 29 December 2013.[11] He also claimed a place on the bench in the New Years Day victory against Hull.[12]

2014–15 season[edit]

On 23 September 2014, Rossiter made his first team debut aged 17 in a League Cup third round match against Middlesbrough, scoring his first goal for the club with a low drive from 30 yards in the 10th minute to become Liverpool's second youngest goalscorer behind Michael Owen.[13][14] On 28 October, Rossiter was an unused substitute in the next round of the League Cup in a match against Swansea which Liverpool won 2–1 thanks to the late header from Dejan Lovren in injury time.[15] He also made the bench in the Reds' 1–0 league victory over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on 10 January.[16] He was an unused substitute in Liverpool's 1–1 draw against Chelsea in the League Cup semi final 1st leg on 20 January 2015.[17] On 2 February 2015, Rossiter suffered an ankle injury in a FA Youth Cup game against Birmingham City that left him on the sidelines for the rest of the season.[18][19]

2015–16 season[edit]

On 11 July 2015, Rossiter was named in Liverpool's 30-man squad for their pre-season tour of Thailand, Australia and Malaysia.[20] On 22 August, Brendan Rodgers stated Rossiter had become a valuable member of Liverpool's first team squad and would not be leaving the club on loan.[21] On 24 August, Rossiter made his league debut, coming-on as 76th-minute substitute for Lucas Leiva in an away match against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.[22]

Rossiter made his European debut for the club on 17 September 2015 in the UEFA Europa League group stage game against Bordeaux. He started the match and played for 80 minutes before being replaced by Cameron Brannagan. The match finished 1–1.[23]

On 16 October 2015, it was reported that Rossiter had contracted a hamstring injury while on international duty.[24] Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp later confirmed that he was not expected back in action until mid-November.[25] Rossiter returned from injury in December featuring in a Europa League match against Sion, however his hamstring was aggravated again during the match leading to another extended period on the sidelines.[26][27] On 6 May 2016, reports emerged that he would leave Liverpool at the end of the season to join Rangers.[28]

Rangers[edit]

On 13 May 2016, Rangers confirmed that Rossiter had signed a pre-contract agreement to join the club on a four-year deal upon the expiry of his Liverpool contract that summer.[29] Rangers agreed to pay Rossiter's former club a £250,000 development fee.[30] Rossiter made his debut for Rangers as a second-half substitute against Stranraer in the League Cup on 25 July 2016.[31] Rossiter suffered a calf injury at the end of August and spent nearly four months out, despite Rangers manager Mark Warburton suggesting he was "7 to 10 days out" on several occasions.[32] After five months on the sidelines, in February 2017, Rangers sent Rossiter south to receive treatment at England's St George's Park National Football Centre for a lower back issue which was causing recurring calf and hamstring injuries.[33]

In May 2017, after eight months out injured, Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha revealed Rossiter should be fit for the start of pre-season training.[34] He featured in the early stages of Rangers' campaign, including once in the Europa League against Progrès Niederkorn before injury once again ruled him out for the majority of the season.[35] He scored his first goal for the club on 13 May 2018, in a 5–5 draw with Hibernian.[36]

Bury (loan)[edit]

On 31 January 2019, Rossiter joined League Two side Bury on loan for the rest of the season.[37]

Fleetwood (loan)[edit]

On 8 July 2019, Rossiter joined League One team Fleetwood Town on a season long loan.[38]

International career[edit]

Rossiter has represented England at U16, U17, U18 and U19 level. He captained England U16 as they won the 2012 Victory Shield.[5] In November 2013, Rossiter was described as one of the "fab four" Liverpudlian players who were at the heart of the England U17 squad.[39] Rossiter represented England U17 in the 2014 Algarve Tournament, with England coming second to Germany after a 1–0 loss in the final game.[40]

In September 2014 Rossiter received his first England U18 call-up for a double-header against the Netherlands, and made his U18 debut in a 4–1 victory.[41][42] On 27 August 2015, Rossiter received his first call up for the England U19 team and played 90 minutes in a 3–2 away win over Germany.[43][44]
