Rangers midfielder Ross McCrorie could reportedly depart Ibrox on loan for the upcoming season and is a wanted man.
According to the Scottish Sun, Gers manager Steven Gerrard believes it may be more beneficial for him to experience regular first-team football elsewhere for new campaign.
It is understood that English League One pair Portsmouth and Shrewsbury are battling it out for his temporary signature.
The 21-year-old is a defensive midfielder that would have a sizeable task trying to be a regular at Ibrox for the new season.
The likes of Steven Davis, Joe Aribo, Greg Doherty, Ryan Jack, Glen Kamara and Scott Arfield could all be vying for roles in central positions.
McCrorie played in 31 first-team games last season, but was in and out of Gerrard’s team throughout the year.
McCrorie is definitely a rising star that can become a serious first-team player in the future, as he shown glimpses of real quality and composure in midfield.
But it does make sense to loan him out for a year to help his development if Gerrard is going to prefer some of his teammates over him.
The midfield enforcer could make a real impact in League One if given the shot and it would be beneficial to him plus Rangers in the long run.
