Jonatan Johansson has taken over Greenock Morton after a coaching role with Rangers.
The Scottish Sun has claimed that Greenock Morton manager Jonatan Johansson wants to sign Rangers youngsters Roby McCrorie and Andrew Dallas on loan until the end of the season.
Johansson, who made 71 appearances for Rangers between 1997 and 2000 after joining the Scottish side from Finnish outfit FC Flora, became Morton manager back in September.
Following an impressive career, Johansson the went into coaching and after a short stint as Finland’s assistant manager, he joined Rangers’ youth team as a coach before becoming an assistant under Graeme Murty.
Not long after Steven Gerrard was appointed, Johansson was given his own managerial role as Morton manager and now he is looking to raid former side Rangers by landing two of their brightest prospects.
Both McCrorie, who is Ross’ twin, and powerhouse striker Dallas have been in decent form for the Gers’ Under-20 side. Goalkeeper McCrorie is yet to make a senior appearance for Rangers, but did play in goal against HJK Helsinki last weekend.
The 20-year-old has appeared on the bench three times this season but remains an unused substitute. Meanwhile, Dallas has been banging the goals in for Rangers’ second string, and has made Gerrard’s bench for three league games.
Johansson, who will know the duo from his time working with Rangers youngsters, is looking to sign both players before Morton take on Dunfermline on Saturday.
