Rangers set for cash windfall as Ross McCrorie closes on £2m Aberdeen exit to Bristol City

Rangers are due to receive a cash windfall from the deal that will see Ross McCrorie sign for Bristol City from Aberdeen in a £2m deal this summer.

McCrorie started and shone in Aberdeen’s 2-0 win over Rangers at Pittodrie on Sunday afternoon (23 April), before reports emerged that he was close to signing for English Championship side Bristol City in a £2m deal for the summer.

And according to the Daily Record (23 April), Rangers are due to a receive an undisclosed percentage of that deal after agreeing a sell-on clause in the deal that saw him leave Ibrox in 2021.

“Former club Rangers will also be due a percentage of any fee as part of their sale to Aberdeen back in 2021, although he was on-loan initially,” they wrote.

Every little helps

In a £2m deal, it’s likely that Rangers will be getting an injection of at least six figures to the club for helping to develop McCrorie and getting him a career in the top flight.

The defender never quite cut it at Ibrox alongside his twin brother, goalkeeper Robby, and was allowed to leave the club permanently in exchange for £350,000 and with Scott Wright going in the opposite direction.

But now he could help Rangers secure more players yet again with the extra cash no doubt going towards the summer transfer budget where Michael Beale will be keen to invest as much as he possibly can to strengthen the team.

Having come through the academy McCrorie would have learnt that the team always comes first, and he’s managed to help us even after leaving and taking three points from us.

It’s not a lot of cash but it’s a decent enough amount that it will be noted, and with the state of the squad right now every little addition can help us get stronger for next season.
