Versatile full-back Rosenior, whose Nan is famously “from ‘Ull” and whose father is former journeyman striker Leroy Rosenior, joined the Tigers in October 2010 on an initial two month deal, having been a free agent for six months. Within a few weeks his services had been secured on a long term contract and he slotted into the permanent right back role for a season and a half. Liam was used more sparingly by Steve Bruce, but he continued to play an important support role for the squad and never gave less than a solid and sound performance – including an extended spell in the first team during 2013/14. He also featured in the City FA Cup squad that season, which made it to the Wembley final. The following season he also featured in City’s all-too-brief Europe campaign before dropping out of the first team scene. He was released in May 2015, posting in the Hull Daily Mail a generous eulogy in praise of the way Hull City fans had supported him over the previous five years.
Born in London but raised in the South West, Liam started his career at Bristol City. After half a season in the Ashton Gate first XI his promise encouraged Fulham to sign him up, where he stayed for four years. He switched to Reading in 2007 where he spent three further seasons, the third of which being spent mostly on loan at Ipswich Town.
Following his release in 2015 Rosenior moved to Brighton where he continued to play an important role in getting clubs out of the Championship. His final season with the Seagulls was spent back in the Premier League, a fitting denouement to his stay on the South Coast. Rosenior announced the end of his playing career in July 2018 as he took up a dual role, coaching at Brighton and punditing for Sky Sports. In July 2019 he abandoned his big screen TV and joined the coaching staff at Derby County.
Rosenior won international recognition for England at under-20 and under-21 levels.
