Rangers loanee Robby McCrorie and an unnamed Aberdeen player have tested positive for Covid-19 following Scotland U21s duty, according to the Daily Record.

McCrorie was part of Scot Gemmill’s squad for UEFA U21 Championship qualifiers against Croatia and Greece over the last week.

He watched on from the bench in Athens on Tuesday as Scotland missed out on qualification with a defeat and now it seems he’s suffered an individual setback.

McCrorie is reportedly self-isolating and is subsequently out of Livi’s home fixture against St Mirren on Saturday afternoon.

It’s a blow for the Gers loanee, who has racked up 10 appearances for his adopted side so far this season.

 

Meanwhile, the unnamed Dons player will miss his side’s trip to Ibrox on Sunday and their fixture against Hamilton Accies next week.

It’s another blow for Derek McInnes, who was already without five first-team players for the Rangers clash.

Ross McCrorie, Lewis Ferguson and Connor McLennan were amongst those to leave Pittodrie for U21s duty.

However, Ross had already been ruled out of this weekend’s game, with the terms of his loan agreement dictating that he cannot play against the Gers.

Rangers defeated Aberdeen 1-0 on the opening day and have established themselves at the top of the Premiership table, but the Dons haven’t lost in the league since September and have a good record in Glasgow in recent years.
