Despite being a regular England youth internationalist and making five first team appearances Liverpool allowed Rossiter’s contract to expire at the end of last season.
Star spotter Frank McParland swooped to take the midfielder to Ibrox on a big money deal where he was immediately branded as the new Steven Gerrard.
Rossiter’s injury problems have resurfaced with no sightings of the 19-year-old since August but absence seems to make the heart grow fonder with a £9m price tag being banded around.
Dalglish knew all about the academy kid as he made his way through the ranks at Liverpool but has little sympathy for the great white hope of Ibrox.
Asked by the Daily Record about Rossiter Dalglish said: “Jordan played for Liverpool’s first team a couple of times – in fact Brendan Rodgers gave him a game. The wee man is more than acceptable but if someone is on the treatment table then you and I are as good as him.
“Somehow the wee man’s got to get himself fit and back on that pitch. He won’t be too happy because he wants to play.”
The wee man isn’t expected to be in action again this year with a variety of injuries reported to be holding back his progress.
Despite the club’s dire finances Mark Warburton is hopeful of bringing in a foreign based goal scoring play-maker on loan during the January transfer window.
