Rangers midfielder Ross McCrorie is set to leave the club for a season and head out on loan, as reported by STV.
The outlet say that the 21-year-old will join either Shrewsbury Town or Portsmouth on a temporary basis, apparently having no immediate future in Steven Gerrard’s Gers plans.
McCrorie played 31 times for the club last season but with arrivals such as Joe Aribo strengthening competition in the middle of the park, alongside January signings such as Steven Davis and Glen Kamara, that could be significantly reduced next term.
Thogden challenged himself to DM 100 footballers on Instagram. Find out who replied in the video below…
With 12 months of regular football under his belt, the hope will be that he can return a stronger and more consistent player, ready to make an assault on the Gers first-team of the future.
Many fans think such a move could be beneficial, with Pompey and the Shrews seen as good destinations for the midfielder to test himself.
These supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…
Most people know am a big fan of Ross McCrorie but if he's not going to play regularly this coming season then he needs to go out on loan. Portsmouth & Shrewsbury are two good clubs so would be the right kind of fit for him especially after how well Docherty did last season.

Was always going on loan mate, told you that before end of season.
Too good for reserve footy, but not good enough for a start in midfield or defence. The loan will bring him on leaps & bounds..

Think Shrews would be a really good fit for him too. Really good place to live (used to live there years ago) and will be a fantastic experience for him.

Needs to play regular then come back and nail down a place in the squad

Ross McCrorie to Shrewsbury is a good move. Portsmouth he’d be challenging for the title, but we know that Shrewsbury are good for loans given how Doc done last season. Think it’s important to be comfortable with the club.
Given the midfield depth we have I think a move is best.

Right move. Hoping he’ll get game time at whichever club he goes to

Perfect move for him, he needs games and he won’t get many with the options we have in midfield now.

Think it’s a smart decision, it’ll be much tougher to get a place in the starting XI, so a loan deal will allow him to get use to (possible) first team football and recurring starts
