Former Ger a ‘regret’ as life continues at Ibrox without him

Former Ger a ‘regret’ as life continues at Ibrox without him

One of many mistakes our ex-manager made was letting Ross McCrorie go. With Ryan Jack’s fitness never guaranteed, Steven Davis’ age, Glen Kamara’s transfer status, only John Lundstram can be properly relied on in that position, and McCrorie could have been such a fine player to have evolve and develop into a fully-fledged Ranger.

Of course, at the Dons he plays CB, in a slot which probably doesn’t get the best out of him – Pittodrie is the last place, alongside Parkhead, that he wants to play at, but he had to do the best for his career and leaving was the right call.

Our ex-boss had his pals, and McCrorie wasn’t one of them.

His new manager, Jim Goodwin, who let’s face it is a half decent boss, snared his CB down to a new deal extension and has advocated him for the captaincy in the future.

This is no small praise, because the last Aberdeen captain we signed wasn’t bad either.

McCrorie wants to be a Ranger, he IS a Ranger and will always want to be playing for the Light Blues, but thanks to SG it wasn’t allowed to happen.

There wasn’t a fan who wanted to lose him, and many who were gutted and confused – many of whom will we’re sure now revise history and claim he’s ‘p*sh’ and they’re glad he’s gone.

But the player is one of us, and we can only look with regret that he’s one of many who got away.

All because of pals acts.
