Rangers loanee Ross McCrorie has had his call up to the senior Scotland squad confirmed by the Scottish FA this afternoon – and fans are delighted to see the 22-year-old added.
McCrorie has been one of the Scottish Premiership’s standout players this season while on loan at Aberdeen from Rangers and now joins twin Robby in Steve Clarke’s squad for the games with Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
Scotland Squad Update:

“He played last night for the under-21’s and i had pre-empted the fact he would come through that game OK, which he has,” Clarke said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“Ross scored himself so he has come to join the squad and is in a good place.
“He is a versatile player, he’s done very well for Derek and Aberdeen in central midfield.
“He can also play at the back and play right-back, he has a number of positions which gives us good cover.”
After captaining the under-21s last night, scoring the second goal in a 2-0 win, Ross will now link up with Steve Clarke’s squad ahead of tomorrow’s Hampden clash with Slovakia.
McCrorie could even make a bit of history if he ends up on the pitch at the same time as Robby by becoming the first pair of twins to play together for Scotland.

Nothing more than what he deserves after his form for Aberdeen this season. Personally I’d start him next game, will handle the pressure no problem.
