Bury continued their march up the League Two table this week with a 3-1 win over Oldham Athletic at Gigg Lane. Two goals from Nicky Maynard and one from Caolan Lavery proved enough to beat their local rivals, who had taken the lead through Callum Lang.
Rangers fans might be interested in who won the man of the match award. Jordan Rossiter was sensational for the Shakers in the heart of midfield. His performance was one which would have had Paul Scholes in the Oldham dugout envious, let alone his own Premier League legend of a manager in Steven Gerrard.

When Gerrard arrived at Rangers there was hope he could turn around the young Liverpudlian’s failing Ibrox career. However, injuries and competition for places soon saw the player once dubbed the next Gerrard struggling again in Glasgow.
So Rangers and Gerrard allowed him this loan move and so far it is certainly paying off.
Rossiter, who cost a £250,000 development fee in 2016 according to the Daily Mail, has also played four games on the bounce for his new club which, given his awful injury record at Rangers, is just as big a boost as his performance.
Rossiter took charge of this game much like Ibrox boss Gerrard used to during his days at Anfield. If this loan spell can trigger a renaissance from the midfield maestro, then it could hand Rangers a future star once again.
