The Ibrox loanee left Rangers for the season during the summer transfer window.
Rangers youngster Ross McCrorie has struggled to make an impression at Portsmouth this week, with the English League One side’s poor form continuing.
Pompey have won just one of their opening six league fixtures, losing or drawing their last four.
McCrorie has been a regular during that period. In fact, the only time he didn’t play was the match they managed to pick up all three points in.
Played in a variety of positions from midfield to right-back, he hasn’t quite emerged as the fan favourite he was fast becoming at Rangers.
The 21-year-old started their most recent match against Burton Albion on Tuesday night, as Kenny Jackett’s side struggled against their ten-man opponents.
They managed to rescue a 2-2 draw, but questions have been asked about their performance, with many fans believing they are playing well below their capabilities.
Sitting in 18th position, serious improvement is needed at the club if they are to climb the table and push towards the top end of the table.
It’s not the kind of start that McCrorie will have hoped for.
He’ll be keen to get dozens of constructive games under his belt this season in his attempts to convince Steven Gerrard he is worthy of a place in his first-team.
Some Portsmouth fans have yet to be won over by the player, with this lot taking to Twitter this week to share their thoughts on his mid-week display…
McCrorie isn’t the answer in centre midfield. Pretty certain of that.— Adam Darke (@adarkelimited) September 17, 2019
McCrorie – 3/10— matt (@MattPFC) September 18, 2019
Terrible. Bowed to crowd pressure when he got the ball outside of the box, even though he’s not any good at shooting. Says a lot about the level of Scottish football that he is the captain of their under 21s. Let him go back.
No idea why we signed McCrorie— Rich Anthony, Esq. (@RParkWill) September 17, 2019

Pompey fans: SHOOOOOT
Ross McCrorie: Shot fly’s over the bar
Pompey fans: Why did you shoot
Have really not seen the McCrorie value yet— Good Morning Pompey! (@MorningPompey) September 17, 2019
Doesn’t look a player to me. Early days and has some athleticism and tackling ability but nothing else yet— Adam Darke (@adarkelimited) September 18, 2019
If Scotland & Rangers love McCrorie and rate him then that sums up Scottish football!— Jamie Fox (@jamiefox83) September 18, 2019
