There wasn’t a whole lot to shout about from Rangers’s 0-0 draw with Kilmarnock at the weekend.

Other than that, though, particularly in comparison to the chaos at Pittodrie just a few days before, it was a game of little quality or incident.

However, as has come to be the norm, one Ger in particular, was excellent.

Ross McCrorie.

The midfielder has went from strength to strength under Steven Gerrard this season.

After an outstanding Old Firm display in late December, he has picked up where he left off.

Despite being only 20, he shows great maturity in the middle of the park.

McCrorie reads the game well, is strong in the tackle and uses the ball efficiently.

All those qualities were on show again at Rugby Park on Saturday.


Therefore, he earned himself a spot in the SPFL Team of the Week.

This isn’t his first time either. He was also included back in December, after a commanding performance in a 1-0 win over Hamilton.

How good can he be?

It’s clear that McCrorie has a very high ceiling as a player.

To be showing consistency like this at such a young age, is remarkable. He has a job and he does it well, with passion and is currently keeping the vastly experienced Steven Davis out of the team.

While slightly older players like Ryan Hardie and Greg Docherty are still having to prove themselves elsewhere, the 20-year-old is already an integral part of this Rangers team.

Long may that continue.
