Rangers open preliminary goalkeeper talks as new deal on the cards - Sources

Rangers have opened talks with Robbie McCrorie over a new contract, Football Insider understands.

The goalkeeper, who turned 22 last month, is one of the most highly rated young players in Scotland along with his twin brother and fellow Light Blue Ross.

Ibrox sources have told Football Insider that the club are working on tying Robbie to a new deal to replace his current agreement, which expires in the summer of 2022.

Rangers are aware of growing interest in the young keeper from clubs north and south of the border, as well as on the Continent.

He is currently at SPL side Livingston, who he joined in January for his second loan of the season.

The Scotland Under-21 international had spent the first half of the season at Championship outfit Queen of the South, where he made such an impact he was named player of the year despite only playing half the campaign.

McCrorie has been tipped by Steven Gerrard to eventually succeed Allan McGregor as the Rangers number one.

He has yet to play for his parent club, although he has been racking up key experience across four loan spells.

In addition to Livingston and Queen of the South, McCrorie has also played for Berwick Rangers in League Two and Greenock Morton in the Championship.

There is a considerable degree of uncertainty about the Rangers keeper positions going into the summer window.

Number two Wes Foderingham is out of contract at the end of June, as is loaned-out Jak Alnwick.

Undisputed first choice Allan McGregor turned 38 in January and has a contract that runs until 2021..

Rangers have turned elsewhere to reinforce their keeper ranks and one of their targets is St Mirren’s Vaclav Hladky, who will be available on a free transfer this summer.
