Rangers midfielder Jordan Rossiter is set to depart Ibrox this month on loan – but would the Gers’ title rivals be a good fit for the former England youth international?

Rossiter has endured an injury-plagued time in Scotland and Gerrard confirmed he was likely to head out on loan before the transfer window closes.

The former Liverpool youngster came to Scotland with a big reputation but hasn’t really had the chance to show what he can do.

With little over two days left in the window, a move to Pittodrie or Rugby Park would be a fantastic opportunity.

Neither club have been credited with an interest in signing Rossiter but he would bring some additional quality to either side.

If Steve Clarke or Derek McInnes can keep him fit and get regular games then they would be getting a player who can only improve their side.

Killie would arguably be the better fit given how Steve Clarke likes his side to play and it would suit Rossiter down to the ground.

The midfielder’s ability to keep hold of the ball and build from the back would suit Killie’s style and could help them sustain their title tilt.

Although a move to either side seems incredibly unlikely given the closeness in the title race – it would be the sort of signing that could make a massive difference.

Wherever Rossiter ends up, they will be getting a quality player.

Whether Aberdeen or Kilmarnock seize the chance will become clear over the next few days.
