Rangers loanee Robby McCrorie has admitted it would be “amazing” to play at Hampden in next weekend’s League Cup final for Livingston – and knows he needs to impress after his surprise return to the starting XI v St. Mirren at the weekend.

The keeper has spent much of the last four months watching from the sidelines after losing his place to Max Stryjek but could now start in this weekend’s Hampden final.

McCrorie thinks the former Sunderland kid has helped push him on in training for the West Lothian side as he aims to help them to a rare piece of silverware this season.

The Scotland squad keeper has been with Livi since last January and confessed that the fantastic atmosphere around the club help make his mind up to return last summer when his initial loan ended.

With a first senior cup final awaiting, McCrorie now wants to repay the faith shown in him by Livi and bring the League Cup back to the Tony Macaroni Arena.

“I know I will need to put in the work in training and then the gaffer will decide who plays,” McCrorie said [Not The Old Firm].

“No matter what happens I will support the team and help any way I can.

“Max has been excellent but the team has been as a whole. We have competition all over the park and that’s good for everyone.


“I have been very fortunate to work with some excellent goalies in my career and Max is another one. We push each other and support each other and that’s the best way.

“It would be amazing to play at Hampden.

“Not many players get this chance in their careers and everyone will want to be involved. But we are all in the same mindset that we want to do well for Livingston and hopefully win the game.

“We have an incredible team spirit here. It was one of the things that made me want to come back here this season.

“There are no egos in the squad, we all graft and we are in it together.
