Rangers goalkeeper Robby McCrorie set for exit after wasted season on Ibrox bench

Goalkeeper Robby McCrorie is ready to quit Rangers after spending a year as the third choice at Ibrox, according to the Glasgow Evening Times.

The 24-year-old had hoped that the 2021-22 campaign would be the season that he burst into the Light Blues side on a more regular basis but he was kept in the shadows by Allan McGregor and Jon McLaughlin.

The former has now signed a new one-year deal to remain at the club which has seemingly sparked McCrorie’s desire to leave Glasgow with St Johnstone, Kilmarnock, Dundee United and Ross County all keen to keep him in Scotland [The Sun].

The Scot has become disillusioned with Rangers after he was given certain assurances by Giovanni van Bronckhorst that he was in his plans but McGregor’s extension has seen him believe that the only option is to leave the club this summer.

He could be in line for a shock move to Manchester United instead of remaining in Scotland though as The Sun claim that Erik Ten Hag wants him to be among his goalkeeper’s union for his first season in English football at Old Trafford.

Good decision

You can hardly blame McCrorie for getting a little agitated at having wasted a season as the third choice at Rangers when he could have been getting regular game time elsewhere.

As proven by his call-up to the Scotland squad for the recent international window, the 24-year-old is clearly a talented shot-stopper and has age on his side too which is very desirable to many, as evidenced by the clubs aforementioned to have interest in him.

Meanwhile, we have been content with rotating between a 40-year-old nearing the end of his career and a 34-year-old who is no better than McCrorie despite the extra 10 years to his name.

It has shown a real lack of forward-thinking from many people at the club and we are going to pay the price for it as the Scot seeks his exit route out of Auchenhowie.

The boss may come to regret this one day, especially if he moves to a Scottish Premiership side and denies us a potential victory in his new colours next season.

In other Rangers news, the Gers are now unlikely to make a move to sign this prolific goalscorer despite keen interest from Ibrox chiefs.
