Rangers are reportedly set to reward defender Ross McCrorie with a bumper new contract and Gers fans on Twitter are delighted at the news.
According to the Scottish Sun, 19-year-old McCrorie and his twin brother Robby – who plays in goal for the Under-20’s – will be given new deals to tie their long-term future to the Ibrox giants.
Ross McCrorie has made the breakthrough into the Ibrox side’s first-team over the last two months and is now a regular part of the matchday squad while Robby McCrorie is impressing on a season-long loan with League Two side Berwick Rangers.
Both are highly-rated by the Rangers coaching staff and would follow a number of the club’s other promising homegrown talent in committing to new contracts.
On social media, fans believe that signing the pair up to new deals is a no-brainer – with one hoping the Gers can move one of them on for £40million in a few years time.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

Since making his first-team debut against Partick Thistle in September, Ross has impressed fans with his performances although he suffered his first major mistake in Saturday’s defeat to Hamilton when he gifted the ball to David Templeton to score the opener.
Both players have been in the club’s Academy for a number of years and have been on the fringes of the first-team.
With Ross already in the first-team, goalkeepr Robby will be depserate to join him and become the first twins since Frank and Ronald de Boer to represent the Gers.
In other Rangers news, this 46-year-old manager who is wanted by the Gers is set to hold talks.
