'Awesome', 'Build a team around him' - Rangers fans react after huge reported injury update

By Richard Parks

Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to express their delight that Ross McCrorie has returned to first team training after three months on the sidelines.

The Gers fans blog Four Lads Had a Dream, which has emerged in recent months as a very reliable source of news surrounding the club, reported on Tuesday afternoon on their Twitter account that the teenage sensation is back in full training.

McCrorie, 19, has been sidelined with a foot injury since the Old Firm draw against Celtic on 30 December.

He has missed Rangers’ last 12 matches with the problem, which has been more serious than initially expected.

The return of the immensely popular Ibrox academy product will be widely welcomed by supporters who regarded him as one of the team’s best players in the opening half of the season.

McCrorie has made 18 first team appearances in his breakthrough campaign, initially at centre-back and then in a midfield anchorman role.

If he does not suffer any setbacks in training, he could now be in contention for the Light Blues’ Scottish Premiership trip to Motherwell on Saturday.

Rangers fans have expressed their satisfaction at the impending return of McCrorie, with one saying “build a team around him” and another insisting the side “is in safe hands for the foreseeable future”.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
