Rangers fans back 'fantastic' player to 'dominate' as debut beckons vs Alashkert

Rangers fans have rallied around goalkeeper Robby McCrorie as his competitive Gers debut beckons against Alashkert.

However, the club confirmed on Tuesday night that multiple members of the group had tested positive with others identified as close contacts.

On Wednesday, neither Allan McGregor nor Jon McLaughlin were with the squad at Glasgow Airport [Sky Sports], so third-choice keeper McCrorie is set to make his competitive debut aged 23, with Kieran Wright likely to be named on the bench.

McCrorie has turned out for the first team before in friendlies and has plenty of senior experience, making 87 appearances across loan stints at Berwick Rangers, Greenock Morton, Queen of the South and Livingston.

Therefore, plenty of Bears are backing him to shine despite the high-pressure situations he’ll likely face over the coming days, with the EL playoff to be followed by an Old Firm in the league on Sunday.

Here’s a selection of supportive comments from fans on Twitter:

Meanwhile, a player who will have a key role to play against both Alashkert and Celtic has received confidence-boosting official SPFL recognition.
