McGregor deal forces Ibrox starlet into quit threat

Robbie McCrorie is set to quit Ibrox after Allan McGregor signed a new 12 month contract. 

The Murray Park starlet has patiently been waiting for his chance in goals and looked set to battle it out with Jon McLaughlin for the gloves of dignity in the new season. 

Greegsy’s new contract has blown that plan out of the water with McCrorie looking to push through an exit or sit out the final year of his contract and leave for nothing. 

On-message Christopher Jack of the Glasgow Times reports: 

Herald and Times Sport understands that McCrorie was given assurances over his place in Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s plans this term but now feels that he has no option but to head for the exit door to avoid another wasted season on the bench after a chance in stance at Ibrox. 

It is understood that Manchester United have added McCrorie – who was called up for Scotland duty for the recent Nations League clashes with the Republic of Ireland and Armenia – to their list of potential targets this summer as incoming boss Erik ten Hag prepares for an extensive overhaul of the Red Devils squad. 

A handful of English clubs are keeping close tabs on McCrorie’s situation as he prepares to return to pre-season action with Van Bronckhorst’s squad and aims to hit the ground running ahead of the new campaign. 

But that will not be to stake his claim for the number one jersey this term as boss Van Bronckhorst gets set to put his faith in Jon McLaughlin despite Allan McGregor signing a new Ibrox deal this week after deciding not to hang up his gloves. 

There is more chance of Ryan Kent displacing Ronaldo than there is of McCrorie joining Manchester United.
