Glasgow Rangers academy graduate Ross McCrorie was tipped for a great future at Ibrox by Steven Gerrard just over 18 months ago.
The Light Blues boss told a press conference that his player had “a great future here and is a potential future captain”.
Scott Arfield, meanwhile, told the Daily Record in February 2019 that “he’s about putting out fires, getting the ball back and giving it to different players. For me, he is the best in the league at it.”
However, McCrorie now seemingly finds himself on the brink of an Ibrox exit.
The 22-year-old spent the entire 2019-20 campaign away from Ibrox with English side Portsmouth, and hasn’t featured in the Gers’ first three Scottish Premiership games of the season.
Earlier this week, Gerrard told Sky Sports that Rangers were open to offers for McCrorie, as well as stating that he won’t be going out on loan again.
Now, the Scottish Sun has claimed that Hibs have returned to the table with an improved offer, with Jack Ross seemingly “desperate” to land the versatile player.
Not only are Rangers said to be considering the bid, but McCrorie is also reported to be keen on a move.
It would be a shame to see a player tipped for success at Rangers now leaving Ibrox for good but it would be for the best, as he deserves to put down roots somewhere he can get first-team football.
