Ross McCrorie has indicated that he is open to leaving Glasgow Rangers on loan this summer, according to a report published by The Scottish Sun.
The 21-year-old goalkeeper has been on the books of the Gers first-team since 2015 but has yet to make a single League appearance for the club. He spent time on loan with Greenock Morton this season and went on to make 11 appearances for them.
Alan McGregor did a decent job as Rangers’ first-choice goalkeeper this season and the 37-year-old looks set to be retained in the role for next season. This means that McCrorie has very little chance of getting regular game time for the Gers if he stays at the club next season.
The Scotland U-21 international is now at a stage of his career where he should be playing as regularly as possible in order to hone his talents and gain more experience at the highest level. He could end up being a Rangers first-choice goalkeeper in the future but is not yet ready to challenge McGregor for the first-choice keeping duties.
It would make full sense for Ibrox boss Steven Gerrard to send him on loan either to a club on the lower end of the Scottish Premiership standings or to a high-flying Scottish Championship club.
Rangers meanwhile can take plenty of positives from this season. Celtic may have sailed to the League title this season but this term was one of the most competitive during recent years. The Gers could have a serious chance of finally usurping the Hoops as Kings of Scottish football next season.
McCrorie has indicated that he is open to leaving the Gers on loan.
“I want to achieve what Allan has and I am aiming for the top. I don’t know what will happen next season as yet,” he told The Scottish Sun.
“But I’d be happy to go back out on loan again if Rangers don’t need me — hopefully for a full season.
“That would mean I would have played 18 months of first-team football. It will help me, and the club, in the long run.”
