Rangers got back to winning ways in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday, thrashing Dundee 4-0 at Ibrox.
Graeme Murty’s outfit had failed to win their previous three matches in the top-flight heading into the match against the Dees, but finally produced a performance worth shouting about to pick up the three points and move into second place above Aberdeen.
It was the perfect confidence booster ahead of next week’s massive semi-final against Celtic, a game which will see the Gers need to raise their game again even from Saturday’s win.
It was also a day that saw the return of defender Ross McCrorie, playing his first match since December after an ankle injury. He was impressive again before being substituted off just past the hour mark and fans couldn’t be more delighted to see his return.
They’re all hoping he’s fit enough to face the Hoops at Hampden next week, believing he’s the best option in defence or defensive midfield.
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his return…
Glad to see you back Ross. Solid display from our future captain 🇬🇧

McCrorie a must for centre half next week. I like him in midfield but Alves and Martin are not the answer

A lot of cracks papered over today. What has Cummings to do to get a game?
Good to have McCrorie back though. What a difference.

When dug owners give it the "we don't deserve dugs" patter on here – that's how I feel about Ross McCrorie
