ROSS McCRORIE has stated his desire to hold down a regular spot with the Rangers first team as well as the Scotland U21s after breaking through this season.
The 19-year-old has become a permanent fixture in the Rangers defence and has impressed whenever he’s been called upon. McCrorie spoke ahead of the Scotland U21’s fixture against Ukraine on Tuesday.
“Life has changed dramatically to be honest. That’s me moved into the first-team dressing-room. Obviously making my debut and staying in the team for the last eight games, it has been brilliant and hopefully I can keep building on it.
“I am up among the first-team boys and I am loving every minute of it.
“It hasn’t been too much difference because I know them all and train with them every day, but I have my locker, that’s the difference.
“When you were with the under-20s you always felt like a youth player, but now I feel as if I am a proper first-team player and feel part of it. Hopefully I can get a few more games and see what happens.”
McCrorie has featured as captain for the u20’s but this season has forced his way into the side with Graeme Murty commenting that McCrorie had kept Bruno Alves out of the side that faced Patrick Thistle. A decision that was vindicated as McCrorie headed a goal to open his account for the Ibrox club.
