Rangers loanee Ross McCrorie has made an impressive start to life at Portsmouth and Pompey boss Kenny Jackett is looking forward to seeing what the midfielder can bring to the Fratton Park side.
McCrorie shone as Pompey beat Stevenage 1-0 in a friendly and Jackett hopes he can continue in the vein that he’s started.
McCrorie partnered Ben Close in central midfield and was the best player on the pitch in the typical pre-season affair – but his performance left Jackett impressed.
“I’ve got a lot of time for him and hopefully he can continue that (his performance),” Jackett told the Portsmouth News.
“‘It’s a good start for him and he’s got great energy. I’m looking forward to seeing how he does for us.
“We’ve got to give him the space to run. He has a really good general, all-round game.”
The midfielder has a great opportunity to show Rangers what they are missing during his time on the south coast and he’s made a good start so far.
The Gers retain a recall clause in his deal which could see him return to Ibrox in January if Gerrard feels he can make an impact.
