Rangers youngster Ross McCrorie is set to leave Steven Gerrard’s Ibrox club and sign for Portsmouth in England in the summer transfer window, according to The Daily Record.

It has been reported that McCrorie and his representatives will fly to Portsmouth on Friday in order to sort out an agreement.

 

Portsmouth in League One in England are in a pole position to land the 21-year-old, who can operate as a central defender or as a defensive midfielder, on a season-long loan deal, but they want an option to sign him on a permanent contract as well, according to the report.

Rangers exit

McCrorie is a very talented and promising young player, and he does have a bright future ahead of him at Rangers.

Ross McCrorie of Rangers walks off after being sent off during the Scottish Cup Semi Final match between Rangers and Celtic at Hampden Park on April 15, 2018 in Glasgow, Scotland.

The 21-year-old is going to struggle for playing time at Ibrox next season, and it does make sense for him to move to Portsmouth on loan for the 2019-20 campaign.

However, the future plan of the youngster should be to play for the Rangers first team in the long run.
