Ross McCrorie delivers verdict on Rangers fans
Rangers star Ross McCrorie insists the Gers support is “second to none” and admitted they could have “turned” on the 19-year-old after he made a mistake against Hamilton earlier in the season.
McCrorie has been a revelation since breaking into the first-team in September and immediately became one of the Gers’ key players before the winter break.
The Scottish youth international has starred in both defence and midfield since coming into the side and his versatility has provided different options for Pedro Caixinha and Graeme Murty.
McCrorie admitted the Gers fans could have “turned” after he gifted Hamilton a goal in the surprise Ibrox defeat by Martin Canning’s side in November.
“The fans have been second to none – they have been brilliant with me, especially since I came in,” McCrorie said, as quoted by the Evening Times.
“When I made that mistake against Hamilton, they could have turned on me, but they never.
“They gave me support. Maybe it’s just because I am a young player, I think it would be the same for any young player coming up.
“I think it was because I showed I didn’t crumble in the game and showed them what I can do.”
McCrorie has made 18 appearances for the Gers so far this season but is currently sidelined with a foot injury which forced him to sit out the club’s Florida Cup wins over Atletico Mineiro and Corinthians earlier this month and is expected to keep him out of action for a few weeks.
The former Under-20’s captain recently signed a new long-term deal with his boyhood heroes which will keep him at Ibrox until the summer of 2022.
Before forcing his way into the first-team at Ibrox, McCrorie had spells on loan with Ayr United and Dumbarton.
