Rangers have loaned out young goalkeeper Robby McCrorie. On the club’s official website, Rangers have confirmed that McCrorie will spend the season on loan at Scottish Championship side Queen of the South.
McCrorie will gain vital experience as he looks to push for a future first-team spot. He has a contract at Ibrox until 2022 so he will return next summer with two years left on his deal.
Last season, the Scotland U21 stopper joined Greenock Morton in January. He made 15 appearances for the Championship outfit and now returns to the second-tier for another loan spell.
Prior to his stint with Morton, McCrorie was at Berwick Rangers on loan. Racking up just under 50 games for the Scottish League Two side, he won several awards during the 2017/18 season.
McCrorie is still behind Allan McGregor in the pecking order, while Jak Alnwick, Wes Foderingham and Andy Firth compete for the back-up spot. With many other goalkeepers on their books, Rangers clearly feel that McCrorie needs another loan.
Here are some tweets from Rangers fans reacting as the 21-year-old heads to Queen of the South for the season.
Another player loaned out to a team that plays on artificial surface that we always complain about as being dangerous.
Added to numerous players who have been loaned to Livingston, Falkirk , Alloa, what is the thought process in sending our boys to play on those surfaces?

In the Scottish Championship. Another step up for Robby. If he does well this season i see him being number 2 next. Great potential.

Good luck to him, hopefully he comes back after this season a better player and maybe push for McGregor’s spot next season

Disappointing. Understand he needed to go on loan but he proved himself in the Championship. A loan move to League One in England would have been much better for him and us.
