Rangers 20-year-old goalkeeper Robby McCrorie is set for another loan spell next season, according to a report.
The Scottish Sun claim that McCrorie, who spent last season on-loan at Berwick Rangers, impressed so much he came home with five trophies from their player of the year awards.
And he could be set to be rewarded with a move up a couple of divisions, with League One winners Ayr.
Ayr boss Ian McCall wants another keeper after losing Jack Ruddy to Wolves, leaving him with just Jordan Hart.
Other clubs have reportedly been in touch about McCrorie, who stands 6ft 2in tall, but have been told they’re behind Ayr.
Football Insider verdict:
This is the perfect example of a loan move working perfectly for all sides – the young footballer and the two sides involved. McCrorie got much-needed game time and performed well in a tough league. His attitude was spot on and he left the club clutching awards. This summer he’s also impressed on the international stage, playing for the Scotland Under-21s in their recent 1-0 win over hosts France in the Toulon Tournament on Wednesday. Now it looks like he’s set for a season in the Championship, which will be a real step up for the youngster. Talent obviously runs in the family, with brother Ross already making an impact in the first team. Given another year, Robby could be staking his own claim for a first-team spot and must grasp the opportunity next season like he did his time at Berwick. There’s a class goalkeeper there and, so far, Rangers are handling his early career with aplomb.
