The Rangers manager, Steven Gerrard, had billed McCrorie as a future Ibrox captain.

Rangers fans are reacting to reports that Ross McCrorie could be leaving Ibrox for good.

The Rangers defender/midfielder has signed a one-year loan deal with Portsmouth and, according to the Daily Record, the English side have an option to buy him outright next year – although this has yet to be verified by either club.

McCrorie has played 55 times for Rangers, with whom he made his first-team breakthrough in 2017, and was recently billed as a future Ibrox captain by his manager, Steven Gerrard.

But if the Daily Record‘s report proves accurate, it would appear as though Gerrard has experienced a sudden change of heart.

And many of a Rangers persuasion are struggling to get their heads around it.

This is what they’re saying on Twitter…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

McCrorie’s twin brother, Robby, has also left Rangers this week.

The goalkeeper will spend the coming campaign on loan to Queen of the South, although that deal is not thought to include an option to buy.

According to the Daily Record, Sunderland failed with a late attempt to sign the outfield player.
