Ex-Ranger… ‘lies’ about departure?

Despite our piece this morning suggesting in fact Ross McCrorie might not have been good enough after all for the shirt, it was nevertheless sad watching him ‘lie’ on national TV today prior to his side’s match with Hibs.

McCrorie said, and we’re paraphrasing, that ‘deep down I always wanted to leave’ and ‘this is where I wanted to be’.

It was surreal and bizarre watching these words come out of his mouth, and you’d have to be a very gullible Sheep to believe them.

McCrorie, a dyed-in-the-wool Rangers fan, who only wanted to play for his team, was ultimately rejected as not good enough despite Steven Gerrard’s earlier contrary claims, and realised his dream of playing for the Famous was not going to happen, so asked to leave.

Yes, he did ask to leave, but only once he absolutely knew it wasn’t going to happen at Ibrox, just like for Greg Docherty and Jamie Murphy.

So it was just with a bit of sadness we saw him claiming one of Rangers’ worst enemies was where he wanted to be.

In his head, he wasn’t lying; ‘here’ could have meant ‘playing football in the first team’, but factually, we know the only one geographical place worse than Pittodrie for a Rangers man is the Meccanodome.

So McCrorie is now a Sheep, whether he likes it or not.

We want to be decent and wish him well, but it’s hard to do that with any player under Derek McInnes.

But hey, what’s done is done.

  1. What choice did he have? Let’s be fair, he would have stayed if he was going to play. But that is his home now, and while it is good to get on with the neighbours, it is vital to get on with your “family”
    I bear him no grudge at all. If we offer to buy him back and play him, then you will see where his loyalty lies – he would burn rubber all the way down the road

  2. Well you have to make some shitey excuse when your just not up to the job in hand,he do well there at the bottom of the league with no hope sheep🐑
