Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has confirmed that there could be an imminent move for Robby McCrorie after impressing at Queen of the South over the first half of the season, with reports suggesting the keeper is heading to Livingston on loan.
The keeper has spent most of the last few seasons out on loan and now looks set for top-flight experience as he continues his development before, hopefully, returning to Ibrox to challenge for the gloves.
Gerrard thinks playing at that level would be “brilliant for his development” as he credited Queen’s with being a fantastic fit for the keeper.
“There is also a potential opportunity for Robby McCrorie to play in the Premiership which would be brilliant for his development,” Gerrard said, as quoted by the official Rangers Twitter account.
“Robby has done a great job at Queen of the South and they have been great for him but the opportunity to play a division above is great for his development and future potential at Rangers.”
During his time at Palmerston, Robby has made 24 appearances, as the Doonhamer’s find themselves just four points off a Championship playoff place.
Playing top-flight football should also really test McCrorie after stints in every division in Scotland over the last few years as he continues working towards first-team football at Rangers.
Heading to the Tony Macaroni Arena has been great for Gers players in the recent past with Ryan Hardie, Jordan Thompson and Liam Kelly all having impressive loan spells in West Lothian – and hopefully, Robby follows suit.
