Robby McCrorie has accused Rangers managers of breaking promises after it appears the deputy goalkeeper made the decision to leave off the back of years of being denied appearances.

The Scotland international goalkeeper, whose career is suffering the same as so many other players who never got a chance at Ibrox, appears to be intending to leave, after a spokesman for him admitted the stopper has had enough.

He said:

“Robby believes he has waited long enough and listened to so many promises from previous managers and coaches and it could be his loyalty to the club has not helped him. Although Rangers are desperate to hold on to him, he says he has to move on now.”

Now the source was careful not to slam Philippe Clement in this, given Jack Butland was already established number one at the club when the Belgian arrived, but McCrorie clearly has had his fill of sitting on the bench – he is better than that, but of course Rangers have offered him a new deal.

There’s a real issue here – the club does not know Jack Butland’s future – he says he’s happy and will stay, but if a big bid arrives from England, he’d be tempted, if he’s going to get the number one jersey down south.

That means the position at Ibrox may be ‘up for grabs’ and as much as McCrorie would love to seize that jersey, he can’t chance it on a maybe bid from a maybe club in England for Butland.

Which means he is likely to make his way out of Govan, with Aberdeen strongly-mooted as a destination.

It’s a shame for the lad, and he definitely must be gutted that even Jon McLaughlin was picked over him a couple of seasons ago – some horrendous decisions at Rangers over the years and they include how badly McCrorie has been handled.

Now we’re not saying Beale or Clement should have picked McCrorie over Butland, but he can look back on the past and really wonder why he wasn’t favoured at any point in 8+ years.

We can’t see him accepting a new Rangers deal at all.
