Rangers player must use return to starting XI to cement place for clash v Celtic


Rangers defender Ross McCrorie has returned to the Gers’ starting XI to face Dundee after months on the sidelines – and the 20-year-old needs to use the clash with Neil McCann’s side to secure his place in the side to face Celtic next weekend.

McCrorie has had a breakthrough season at Ibrox this campaign after making his debut in September and could play a vital role for Graeme Murty’s side next weekend as they look to bring their seven-year wait for a major trophy to an end.

The 20-year-old has been hugely missed by the Gers since tearing ligaments in his food and being sidelined since the end of 2017.

Next weekend’s clash with Celtic comes with added pressure on the Gers as Brendan Rodgers’ side try to take a step closer to lifting a historic back-to-back domestic treble with this season’s League Cup already secured and one hand on the league title.

The Gers haven’t lifted a major trophy since 2011 but could bring that to an end in May if they can upset the odds and beat Celtic next weekend, but the Gers will need McCrorie to come through Saturday’s meeting with Dundee with flying colours if they are to stand a chance.
