Rangers loanee Ross McCrorie nearing return to action after injury blow

Rangers ace Ross McCrorie could be set to make his Portsmouth return when they face Peterborough in a few weeks time as he looks like returning to action following injury.

The versatile star suffered a hamstring injury in the game against Southend United earlier this month and hasn’t played since as Pompey boss Kenny Jackett gave an update on his squad.

Jackett has a trio of players injured with Tom Naylor and Sean Raggett forced off in the FA Cup win over Harrogate, as well as McCrorie.

“They’re not too bad and we’re thinking the Peterborough game could be a realistic target for all of them,” Jackett said, as quoted by Portsmouth’s official website.

“None of them will be featuring in the next 10 days, but injuries are a part of football and you have to get on with it.”

McCrorie had only just forced his way back into a regular place in the side when he limped off against Southend a few weeks ago.

Hopefully, he can pick up where he left off and get straight back into the starting XI and kick on after a tough few months.

With Rangers having the option to recall McCrorie in January, he could return to Ibrox but it seems most likely that he’ll see out the season on the south coast.
