Rangers fans on Twitter have raved about the performance of a “faultless” Ross McCrorie in the 3-1 win against Hearts at Murrayfield on Saturday.
McCrorie, 19, had been thrown into the starting line-up once more, this time alongside Danny Wilson, due to injury and suspension ruling out the usual centre-back pairing of Fabio Cardoso and Bruno Alves.
Many believe that the teenage centre-back made a brilliant account of himself in the win at Hearts, even though it was his foul that led to Kyle Lafferty opening the scoring for Hearts in the 24th minute.
Some Gers supporters don’t believe that the referee should have awarded a free-kick and even though McCrorie was highly suspect for the Hearts opener, fans have still offered a glowing review of him on Twitter for his overall performance.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
Think McCrorie is great at sliding through those little balls to feet. Uses the ball well

Everyone ignoring the fact McCrorie won the ball for the free kick they scored from?

Can we talk about McCrorie being a regular starter yet? He’s impressed me every time he’s played.

McCrorie far from the finished article but a really promising young defender

McCrorie was one of many youngsters called up to the Rangers first-team during Pedro Caixinha’s time in charge, but with the Portuguese boss being sacked on Thursday, Graeme Murty took his turn to include the teenage defender in his line-up.
The Scotland Under-21 international has made seven appearances in the Gers first-team this year, the first of which was his senior debut when he came off the bench against Partick in mid-September.
He was handed his first senior start in the Old Firm loss to Celtic just days later, making a very good impression of himself to all those watching on.
