Rangers completed yet another January transfer when Matt Polster joined from Chicago Fire.
Polster has signed a two-and-a-half year contract with Rangers after moving over from the United States, the club’s official website has confirmed.
The 25-year-old plays as a right-back or as a holding midfielder, providing Steven Gerrard with depth in both departments.
But Polster’s arrival forces Jordan Rossiter even further down the pecking order at Ibrox and surely a loan exit must be on the cards.
Gerrard has made it clear throughout the second half of January that Rossiter will be allowed to leave on loan.
BBC Sport reports that Gerrard has confirmed clubs are interested in signing Rossiter on a temporary basis.
But the ex-Liverpool midfielder needs be pushing hard for this temporary exit with immediate first-team opportunities looking unlikely.
The 21-year-old has endured another injury plagued season with just five appearances to his name this season.
In order to salvage his Rangers career, he needs to prove himself out on loan.
If he can stay fit and find his best form, then he could convince his former Liverpool mentor and current Rangers manager Gerrard that he is good enough for the Gers.
Polster’s arrival should be the transfer deal that seals Rossiter’s temporary Rangers exit.
