Rangers’ young goalkeeper Robby McCrorie has been impressing at loan club Queen of the South and has received praise from his current manager as a consequence.
With Allan McGregor and Wes Foderingham the undisputed number one and two goalkeepers at Ibrox, Steven Gerrard allowed the young Scot to head out on loan this summer.
McCrorie joined Queen of the South in a deal until the end of the season, following on from a spell at Greenock Morton last term.
The Scotland under-21 star has certainly impressed at the Championship club.
Yesterday, he was in fine form as the Doonhamers defeated his former loan club Morton 1-0. As reported by The Scotsman, McCrorie was ‘outstanding’ and pulled off a ‘stunning’ save late on to secure all three points for his loan club.
Queen of the South manager Allan Johnston certainly agreed, as he lauded praise on the player after the game, as reported by the Daily Record.
“I’m delighted for the players as in recent weeks we have put a lot into the games and not got the rewards.
“(Goalscorer) Faissal (El Bakhtaoui) is just getting back to full fitness and the goal is massive for him while Robby is a big presence in goal.”
Rangers clearly have McCrorie in their long-term plans. Last summer he signed a new deal at the club until 2022 along with his twin brother Ross, who is currently on loan at Portsmouth.
Hopefully, he can continue to put in excellent performances like this to showcase his potential as a future Rangers first-teamer.
