Ross McCrorie: "I want to take as much responsibility as I can"

Yesterday brought yet more disappointment for Rangers fans.

The last ditch winner at St Johnstone, had brought hope that that the team could press on with two massive results ahead of the winter break.

Yet, instead, there was an immediate slip up.

Once again, the Gers failed to take chances and ended up paying the price.


Speaking to RangersTV after the match, Ross McCrorie echoed the words of his manager.

“We need to get that cutting edge back after the last few games or we are going to have problems. We are letting teams back in it and today we shot ourselves in the foot.”

On an individual note, the 20-year-old certainly didn’t shy away from responsibility. In fact, he wants more of it.

“I am happy I am back in the side. I want to help the team as much as I can and I want to take as much responsibility as I can to help the team move forward”, he explained.

These are encouraging words from a young home grown talent, on the back of a disappointing result.

Since being given an opportunity after injury, McCrorie has largely impressed, showing a maturity beyond his years in the middle of the park.

He will know that if given the nod on Saturday, it’ll be a whole different story in the pressure cooker of the Old Firm.

Yet, this is a player who appears to have a good head on his shoulders. He’s been there before and shouldn’t be overawed.

Clearly, he has ambitions to be an important, long-term fixture in this team.
