Rangers keeper Robby McCrorie will spend the season on loan with Livingston but the West Lothian side’s season got off to a disappointing start with 1-0 defeat by St. Mirren.
McCrorie finished last term at the Tony Macaroni Arena, putting in a number of impressive performances for Gary Holt’s side before making a return this season as Gers boss Steven Gerrard looks to get him regular game time.
The Scotland under-21 international lined up opposite former Gers team-mate Jak Alnwick but had little to do for long spells in the game, despite his side coming out on the end of a 1-0 defeat.
St. Mirren’s goal was a fantastic header by debutant Richard Tait which McCrorie had little chance at stopping but looked confident throughout the game.
Despite his young age, McCrorie was very vocal and had no hesitation in barking orders at more senior players after starting the campaign as Livi’s number one.
It was a scrappy game for both sides but the young Rangers keeper looked confident when called upon, although his kicking was a bit wayward at times.
There’s obviously still a fair way to go before he’s considered as a replacement for Allan McGregor but he’s making all the right moves so far.
An impressive season at Livi could really help the young keeper take that next step and finally experience first-team football as a Rangers player.
