St Gallen have joined the race to sign Rangers youngster Ross McCrorie and that could see him link up with a former Light Blues loanee (Daily Record).
Flo Kamberi endured a pretty disappointing loan spell at Ibrox last season and is now playing in Switzerland with St Gallen.
McCrorie, 22 was at Portsmouth last season, featuring 18 times as Pompey lost in the semi-final of the League One play-offs.
Steven Gerrard has implied that he doesn’t want to loan the youngster out anymore and will only consider a sale this summer.
It is thought that Hibernian had bid £200,000 for the academy graduate and they now look to be out of the race (Scottish Sun).
Kamberi joined St Gallen for £150,000 in the summer after a loan spell at Rangers that reaped just one goal in nine appearances.
It is thought McCrorie could join the former Gers man and have been watching clips of the youngster in action at Portsmouth last season.
A lifelong Rangers fan, it will be a real heartbreaker for the central midfielder to leave Ibrox.
For the good of his career, however, it seems like the only option given he isn’t in the thoughts of Gerrard.
In total McCrorie has played 55 times for Rangers but could kick start his career in Switzerland.
St Gallen finished above Basle in second last season and will enter the Europa League qualifiers during 2020/21.
TBR View – Time is right for McCrorie to head to pastures new
It’s never nice for Rangers supporters to see one of their own depart but McCrorie is far too good to be kicking his heels on the fringes.
For the good of his career, he’d be right to head elsewhere and St Gallen might be the ideal place for him.
European football will only improve his game and the chance to play regularly would prove perfect for the midfielder.
Rangers have a plethora of midfield talent now and sentiment can’t take precedence in his instance.
