It’s fair to say Rangers have an embarrassment of riches when it comes to goalkeepers.

Allan McGregor and Wes Foderingham are, arguably, the best in their position in Scotland.

Robby McCrorie, Aidan McAdams and Kieran Wright have the Scotland youth team’s number one spot sewn up.

But having so many talented goalkeepers means it is harder for the younger ones to get regular game-time – even Wes Foderingham’s appearances have been fleeting this season.

With his twin brother Ross now a regular in the first-team, it is the perfect time for Robby McCrorie to look elsewhere.

Leaving Ibrox on a short-term move would be absolutely perfect for McCrorie and give him the chance to play regularly.

A spell at Berwick on loan previously was a huge success for McCrorie, winning their Player of the Year award.

Eight clean sheets in 40 appearances for the Wee Gers saw McCrorie earn widespread plaudits for his performances.

 

There’s little doubting Robby’s ability but he needs to gain experience now and continue his development.

Playing regularly can only help him become a better player and fulfill his potential.

When he signed for the Gers as a kid there were a host of big names after his signature – but he now risks stagnating sitting in the stands watching games.

Moving to a Championship side would be a real test for McCrorie and give him an opportunity to improve.

All the training in the world won’t replicate games and help gain vital first-team experience.

The McCrorie’s should be a mainstay in the side for years to come – but for now a temporary move away is likely the best option to get there.

If it does happen, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him quickly force his way into the first-team.
