Excellent Rangers player wants Ibrox exit amid Man United interest
Rangers talent Robby McCrorie wants to leave the club this summer amid links with a shock move to Manchester United.
The Gers have announced a new contract for veteran goalkeeper Allan McGregor, who continues to go strong into his 40’s.
Rangers also handed a new deal to Jon McLaughlin earlier this year, meaning Rangers have their two senior goalkeepers for next season.
Andy Firth has gone upon the expiration of his contract, but what comes next for McCrorie?
McCrorie has long been tabbed as a goalkeeper who could end up taking over from McGregor one day.
That chance looked set to come this summer with McGregor out of contract, but Rangers have given him new terms.
That means McCrorie faces another season as Rangers’ third-choice goalkeeper, which just isn’t good enough for the 24-year-old.
McCrorie needs regular first-team football now and it just isn’t going to come at Rangers any time soon.
After all, McCrorie has already proven his quality out on loan away from Rangers having been branded ‘excellent’ by ex-Livingston boss Gary Holt.
The Herald now claim that McCrorie is disillusioned at Rangers and will not sign a new contract; his current deal ends in 2023.
McCrorie was given assurances over his Rangers role but now feels he needs to leave after McGregor’s deal.
The report notes that Manchester United want to sign McCrorie as they chase a new goalkeeper to challenge David De Gea.
Dean Henderson is likely to leave United this summer and the Red Devils have picked out McCrorie as a potential replacement.
Rangers won’t want to lose McCrorie for nothing next summer, so the prospect of a sale to United seems strong – but that wouldn’t exactly satisfy McCrorie’s desire for first-team action
