Devastated Matt Crooks posts message on Twitter, Rangers fans respond

Glasgow Rangers boss Mark Warburton has identified Matt Crooks as a player who would enhance the quality of players at Ibrox.

New Glasgow Rangers signing Matt Crooks has tweeted that he is ‘devastated’ that his time at Accrington Stanley has come to an end after a loss in the play offs.

Rangers snapped up Crooks in the January transfer window, but he was left at Accrington until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old played a key role for Stanley, as they pushed for promotion, but he was powerless as his teammates failed to progress to the final.

Crooks was on the sidelines, and could only watch on as Stanley drew 2-2 with AFC Wimbledon yesterday.

The central midfielder was understandably gutted, but Rangers fans were quick to try and pick up the youngster.

Crooks’ attention will now have to turn to Rangers, with his move to Ibrox edging ever closer.

Crooks has caught the eye of Rangers boss Mark Warburton with his performances in League Two, and he will join the newly promoted Scottish Premiership side with Stanley teammate Josh Windass in the coming months.
