Portsmouth are interested in making Rangers loanee Ross McCrorie’s move to the south coast permanent, according to a report.
According to the Scottish Mail on Sunday (29/03, back page), Pompey are keen to keep McCrorie at Fratton Park after being impressed with him on loan this season.
The versatile star has played in a variety of positions for both Rangers and Portsmouth, fiding himself used most often recently at right-back.
It seems unlikely that Steven Gerrard would be willing to let McCrorie move permanently after hinting he could captain the club in the future.
Since moving to Portsmouth, McCrorie has made 15 appearances for Kenny Jackett’s side but a combination of injury and suspension have disrupted his time there.
The uncertainty over when football will return won’t help matters as it will make it difficult for either club to plan to any real degree.
McCrorie and twin brother Robby have looked destined to be set to star together in the first-team at Rangers for years now but if Portsmouth get their way then it might never end up happening.
