Rangers have rejected a bid for Ross McCrorie, and The Scottish Sun has hinted that a follow-up offer for the Ibrox starlet may be unlikely at this stage.
McCrorie’s future with the Gers has had a question mark lingering over it for some time. The 22-year-old has not been named in any of Steven Gerrard’s squads this season.
The Scottish Sun reports that Hibernian had targeted McCrorie and had subsequently confirmed their interest with a bid for the youngster.
It has been suggested that McCrorie is keen to move to Easter Road this summer as he senses that his game-time is going to be restricted should he remain with the Gers.
However, The Scottish Sun has confirmed that Hibs’ offer – worth around £200,000 plus a future sell-on fee – has been turned down by the Light Blues.
And interestingly, The Scottish Sun claims that Jack Ross’s men have been priced out of a move as things stand.
TBR View: Rangers right to hold out for bigger fee
It would have arguably been a huge mistake had Rangers accepted £200,000 for McCrorie.
He may not play a lot this season should he stay at Ibrox. But he is an extremely talented player with plenty of potential.
He is also incredibly versatile. And it would be no surprise if he gets his chance this season should he remain with Rangers after the window closes.
For some, it will be a big shame if McCrorie leaves whatever the price. But they can perhaps be encouraged that it does appear that Rangers are not going to offload him on the cheap.
