Confirmed: Rangers complete signing of Liverpool starlet on four-year deal

first_img Jordan Rossiter in action for Liverpool 1 Jordan Rossiter has signed an agreement with Rangers to join the Light Blues in the summer, the Ibrox club have confirmed.The 19-year-old England youth international will move from Liverpool on a four-year deal until 2020.Midfielder Rossiter made five first-team appearances for his boyhood club after captaining and graduating from the Liverpool academy, including featuring against Sion in the Europa League, Jurgen Klopp’s first game in charge of the Merseyside club.Rossiter is Mark Warburton’s third recruit for next season following the captures of Matt Crooks and Josh Windass as the Gers boss gears up for the Ladbrokes Premiership.Warburton told the club’s official website: “Jordan is an outstanding young England youth international who will be an excellent addition to the Rangers squad.“Technically gifted and game aware, he also has a first-class character and displays a tigerish desire to reach the highest levels of the game.“It is a pleasure to welcome him to the club.”Rossiter was out of contract at Liverpool and with Gers’ head of recruitment Frank McParland aware of him from his Anfield days, the midfielder was snapped up by Warburton.Rossiter described the move as “an honour,” telling the club’s official website: “I am made up to be here, it is a great club with a lot of history, you look at the likes of Rangers’ teams and players over the years and I am really looking forward to getting started.“I have come from a massive club like Liverpool to another massive club like Rangers so it is a great feeling for me and an honour.“I know Frank McParland from my Liverpool days and working with the academy with him and he is a great fella. I am looking forward to working with him again and getting started here.“He didn’t need to sell the club to me, it doesn’t need much selling.“You look at Murray Park, which is a great training facility and then Ibrox; I walked into Ibrox and I was a bit taken aback by it.“I walked in and saw all the mahogany walls and it’s nice and old, you can tell it is a stadium with a lot of history and I’m sure there will be a lot more made there in the future.”“I chose Rangers because of the history it has got, it is a massive club and I don’t think people realise down south how big a club it really is.“I think I have always known and so have my family and it is just a great opportunity to carry on learning my trade.“Rangers is a club which wins trophies and winning trophies would be brilliant, they have two already and are going for a third next week so it is a club that is always going to win things and next season, hopefully, I can help with that.”last_img read more

Jordanians condemn terrorist

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week King Abdullah II, a strong U.S. ally, vowed in a nationally televised address to “pursue those criminals and those behind them, and we will get to them wherever they are.” Two Americans were killed and four wounded in the bombings Wednesday evening at the Hyatt, the Radisson SAS and the Days Inn, State Department spokesman Noel Clay said. Two of the wounded were hospitalized. The daughter of a Hollywood producer was one of the two American citizens killed in the hotel bombings, it was reported Thursday by a Los Angeles television station. Moustapha Akkad and his 34-year-old daughter, Rima Akkad Monla, were at the Radisson SAS – one of three hotels that were targeted – when a suicide bomber blew himself up inside a ballroom during a wedding reception, KABC (Channel 7) reported. Significantly, the victims also included some two dozen Palestinians with roots in the West Bank. Among them were the West Bank’s intelligence chief, Maj. Gen. Bashir Nafeh, a diplomat and a prominent banker. Many Jordanians and Palestinians have supported the Iraqi insurgency, but the hotel bombings could tip Arab sentiment against al-Zarqawi. AMMAN, Jordan – Thousands of Jordanians rallied in the capital and other cities shouting “Burn in hell, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi!” a day after three deadly hotel bombings that killed at least 59 people. Officials suspected Iraqi involvement in the attacks, which were claimed by al-Qaida’s Iraq branch. As protesters in Jordan and elsewhere in the Arab world denounced the Jordanian-born leader of al-Qaida in Iraq, security forces snared a group of Iraqis for questioning and officials said one of the bombers spoke Iraqi-accented Arabic before he exploded his suicide belt in the Grand Hyatt Hotel. The main demonstration in Amman lasted for more than an hour. But honking vehicles, decorated with Jordanian flags and posters of King Abdullah II, cruised Amman’s streets until late in the night, as passengers chanted “Death to al-Zarqawi, the villain and the traitor!” and anti-terrorism slogans. About 50 people, including Jordanian children holding tiny flags, placed candles on a makeshift sand memorial in the driveway of the Hyatt. In the West Bank village of Silet al-Thaher, members of the Akhras family mourned 13 of their relatives killed during a wedding party at the Radisson. “Oh my God, oh my God. Is it possible that Arabs are killing Arabs, Muslims killing Muslims? For what did they do that?” screamed 35-year-old Najah Akhras, who lost two nieces in the attack. Similar thoughts were heard over and over throughout the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Other members of the Akhras family were wounded, including two U.S. citizens who live in the Caribbean island of St. Thomas, said Nader Akhras of Arlington, Texas. Al-Qaida in Iraq, which appears to be expanding its operations outside Iraq, said the bombings put the United States on notice that the “backyard camp for the Crusader army is now in the range of fire of the holy warriors.” But later Thursday, in an apparent response to the protests, al-Zarqawi’s group took the rare step of trying “to explain for Muslims part of the reason the holy warriors targeted these dens.” “Let all know that we have struck only after becoming confident that they are centers for launching war on Islam and supporting the Crusaders’ presence in Iraq and the Arab peninsula and the presence of the Jews on the land of Palestine,” al-Qaida in Iraq said in an Internet statement, the authenticity of which could not be immediately verified. Al-Zarqawi’s group has claimed responsibility for previous attacks in Jordan, including the 2002 assassination of U.S. diplomat Laurence Foley. Jordan, a moderate Arab nation, has fought a long-running battle against Islamic extremists opposed to its 1994 peace deal with Israel. In addition to the two Americans, the dead included 33 Jordanians, many with family ties to the Palestinian West Bank; six Iraqis; two Bahrainis; at least two Chinese; one Indonesian; and one Saudi. The others had not yet been identified. Officials said the death toll of 59 – which includes the three attackers – could rise because several of the 100 or so wounded victims were seriously hurt. Iraqi President Jalal Talabani condemned the Amman attacks and said they put Jordan on notice against harboring militants. “Unfortunately there are still some groups in Jordan supporting terrorist criminals, describing them as the resistance, and they are deceived by their claims,” Talabani said in Rome. Two daughters of ousted leader Saddam Hussein now live in Jordan, as do many other wealthy and formerly powerful Iraqis. “I hope that these attacks will wake up the ‘Jordanian street’ to end their sympathy with Saddam’s remnants … who exploit the freedom in this country to have a safe shelter to plot their criminal acts against Iraqis,” Iraqi government spokesman Laith Kubba said. He also said Iraqis may have had a hand in the attacks. “The al-Qaida organization has become as a plague that affected Iraq and is now transmitted by the same rats to other countries. A lot of Iraqis, especially former intelligence and army officers, joined this criminal cell,” Kubba said. One of the nearly simultaneous blasts tore through a banquet hall at the Radisson, where 300 guests were celebrating the wedding of the Jordanian-Palestinian couple. “While I was shooting the pictures, all of sudden I saw a huge explosion, like the explosions we see on television, and people started screaming and pushing their way out of the hall,” said wedding cameraman Osaka Rushed al-Saleh, 27. He spoke from his hospital bed, where he was recovering from facial and shoulder injuries. President George W. Bush said the attackers defiled Islam and that the United States would help bring those responsible to justice. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
