Returning Rangers loanee Ross McCrorie has opened up on his Ibrox future after his stint at Portsmouth and admits he’s “got a lot to prove” to Steven Gerrard after a year away from Ibrox.
McCrorie made his return in yesterday’s bounce game win over Hamilton but is yet to have a proper talk with Gerrard about this his future.
The Scotland under-21 star confessed that he’d think about going back out on loan but insists he’s just focused on working hard in pre-season after returning from Fratton Park.
“I’ve not really spoken to Steven Gerrard since I came back (about his future),” McCrorie said, as quoted by The News.
“I’m just going to get my head down and work hard, because I’ve got a lot to prove.
“Then we’ll see what happens in the coming weeks. I’m not sure what will happen because I’ve not been back here long enough yet.
“I’d need to think about it when the time comes (if a loan opportunity comes up again).”
McCrorie’s versatility could really benefit him this season with Matt Polster’s exit and Niko Katic injury leaving the Gers a little short in defence.
After his time at Portsmouth saw him feature regularly at right-back, he could deputise for skipper James Tavernier once the season gets started next month.
From being hailed by Gerrard as a ‘potential future captain to now being unsure over his Ibrox future, the next 12 months will be massive for McCrorie’s Rangers career.
