'It’s been on my mind' - McCrorie makes admission about temporary Rangers exit
By James Black
On-loan Rangers goalkeeper Robby McCrorie has revealed that he’s been delighted with his time at Berwick since joining the League Two side on a season-long deal.
The 19-year-old has been a mainstay in the Shielfield Park side’s starting XI so far this season and thinks he can ‘feel the benefit’ of playing regular first-team football.
With twin brother Ross making waves in the first-team at Ibrox there’s a real chance Rangers fans could see the pair line-up together in a Rangers starting XI.
The Scotland Under-19 goalkeeper has also admitted that he has been angling to leave Ibrox on a temporary basis for the last 12 months.
“It’s been really good for me,” Robby McCrorie said, as quoted by Rangers’ official website.

“Over the last year or so it’s been on my mind to get out on loan, and I can feel the big benefit it has had on me personally with the experience I’ve had so far.
“You want the three points and to finish as high-up in the league as possible to try and get promotion.
“It’s that extra motivation for me and being part of a team that has a real willingness to win.”
The 19-year-old is under contract at Ibrox until the end of next season although the talented goalkeeper is almost certain to be offered renewed terms before then.
With Aidan McAdams joining the Gers from Celtic over the summer and Liam Kelly returning from a loan spell with Livingston, McCrorie faces stiff competition to break into the senior squad as back-up to Wes Foderingham and Jak Alnwick.
Berwick are currently sixth in the Scottish League 2 standings after 11 games played but don’t look as though they will be able to launch a promotion bid due to their current form, although it does appear to be improving.
