Rangers’ Ross McCrorie has found himself on the fringes at Ibrox recently, despite solid form at the turn of the year.
Rangers are yet to lose a game domestically when McCrorie has played. In fact the only game Gerrard has lost with Ross in the side was the 1-0 defeat Europe League defeat in Vienna.
His willingness to hunt the ball down, crash into challenges and recycle it calmly are a special asset. And perhaps the missing piece for both club and country.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see Ross McCrorie recalled to the starting line-up against Celtic when the international break comes to an end. He was that good in Rangers’ 1-0 win against our rivals in December.
Still only 21, Ross has been used sparingly since then.
Not that Ross is letting it get to him [originally Daily Record].
But his removal from the side has had an influence. Rangers have lacked his mobility and drive in midfield. There are too many similar players doing similar things.

The same might certainly be true of Scotland. The country doesn’t have that player who will sit in front of the defence and mine for the ball.

It means Scotland’s midfield lacks balance – the overwhelming majority of the country’s players are those sweeping, creative types associated with Celtic. They don’t generally have the same impact on the defensive side of the game.
Passionate, mobile and most of all capable, are Rangers and Scotland missing a trick by not including Ross McCrorie in their matchday squads?
