'Our best player' - Rangers fans blown away by defender display v Dundee
Rangers fans on Twitter have been left blown away after Ross McCrorie made his return from injury for the Gers against Dundee, which ended 4-0 to the Gers.
The 20-year-old, who has been of the star players at Ibrox this season, made his first appearance since December for the Gers in the match against the Dens Park side.
McCrorie played in his old centre-back position, and not the defensive midfield role where he has recently excelled, and supporters were delighted with his performance.
Here are some of the best reactions to the youngster’s performance:
McCrorie is 100% a future Rangers captain

Ross McCrorie is very possibly our best player already.
A 20 year old, youth system product.
That is pleasing.

For me the only pleasing point for me, apart from the goal, is McCrorie very solid imo ????⚪????

McCrorie played for 65 minutes before being replaced by Bruno Alves.
The return of McCrorie is excellent news for the Gers, particularly with the Scottish Cup semi-final against Celtic on the horizon.

It will be interesting to see if Gers boss Graeme Murty elects to play McCrorie in defence against Brendan Rodgers’ side or if he moves him to the middle of the park.
McCrorie has been in excellent form for the Gers since making his debut for the Ibrox side against Partick Thistle in September.
After a baptism of fire against Celtic in his full debut, the player settled down and the decision to move from defence to midfield has been a masterstroke.
If the Gers are to finish second in the league and win the Scottish Cup, they will McCrorie to stay fit for the rest of the season.
