Rangers loanee Ross McCrorie has opened up on his first Scotland call-up and admits that he wants to be involved in Steve Clarke’s set-up “all the time” after moving up from the under-21s.
McCrorie was a late addition to the squad for the games with Slovakia and Czech Republic earlier this month, joining twin brother Robby in Clarke’s pool.
The versatile Gers Academy graduate is yet to get his first taste of action for the senior national side but is setting his aim on forcing his way into Clarke’s side sooner rather than later.
“I was fair chuffed. I had the Under-21 game, and I got a call from the gaffer here saying I was getting the call-up,” McCrorie said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“Now I want to make the next step and be involved all the time and get some game time.”
McCrorie has had an excellent start at Aberdeen and has quickly cemented his place in Derek McInnes’ side as the Dons looks to push for third in the table.
It was no surprise to see him added to the Scotland squad after a few call-offs and his continued good form should see him picked the first time around this time.
While his Rangers career is coming to an end, Ross looks certain to go on and carve out an excellent career for himself elsewhere.
