Ross McCorie: This would be icing on the cake in Rangers career
Rangers star Rosss McCrorie has revealed it was “brilliant” to make his Old Firm debut against Celtic in September and admitted winning a place in the Scotland squad would be the “icing on the cake.”
The 19-year-old was thrust into the squad after a number of injuries left the Gers short of defensive options and blew fans away with his performances.
After coming into the side, McCrorie forced his way into a regular first-team place before an injury in December ruled him out with no date set yet for his return.
The Scotland Under-21 international admitted getting the call to join the senior squad would be an “honour” after impressing at Ibrox.
“I came off the bench against Partick and then I started against Celtic,” McCrorie said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“I think the fact things came around so quickly probably helped me – it was brilliant to walk out and see all the fans.

“My ambition is to win trophies and make Rangers the best team in Scotland.
“I would love to get into the Scotland squad and that would be an honour and the icing on the cake.”
McCrorie has come through the Academy at Ibrox and enjoyed spells on loan with Ayr United and Dumbarton before making the step up at Ibrox.
Since coming into the side McCrorie has made 19 appearances but has been out of action since a foot injury picked up in December flared back up during the Gers’ winter trip to Florida.
The 19-year-old – along with twin brother and Gers youth goalkeeper Robby – recently signed a new long-term contract to keep him with his boyhood heroes until the summer of 2022.
