Rangers loanee Ross McCrorie has opened up on his frustration after “tweaking” the hamstring injury which kept him out of the Portsmouth side earlier in the season in the 1-0 win over Ipswich on Saturday.

McCrorie limped off after 43 minutes and now faces a few weeks out of action again as his spell on the south coast throws another hurdle his way.

“Great result at the weekend and the fans were different class,” McCrorie said on Instagram.

“Frustrating tweaking my previous injury but be back very soon”

 

After being touted as a future Ibrox captain, McCrorie’s time at Portsmouth hasn’t really gone how he versatile star would have hoped with only 16 appearances under his belt this season.

Suspensions and injury have disrupted his time at Pompey but, hopefully, he can get back on track after Christmas and force his way into a regular position in Kenny Jackett’s side.

Getting back to Ibrox after a run of games would be massive for McCrorie and could go a long way to determining whether he has a long-term future at Rangers or not.
