Robby McCrorie’s Rangers exit has finally seemingly materialised as the Scotland call up was nearing in on a move to Derek McInnes’ Kilmarnock side, with a view to being the new number one at Rugby Park.

In further evidence that being on the plane to Holland is pretty meaningless with regards to who’s leaving Rangers and who’s staying, McCrorie, who is currently in Eindhoven, is set to finally give up on Rangers and secure first-team football at long last away from Ibrox.

Rangers of course signed Scotland stopper Liam Kelly in a move designed to push McCrorie out – the former Motherwell goalie joined Rangers this summer to be new number two, with the usual lip service about challenging Jack Butland for the number one jersey.

That is unlikely to happen, and of course Kelly’s development was very much in parallel with McCrorie’s, so to bring the former back when the latter is still trying so desperately to break into Rangers’ first team gives an indication that McCrorie’s Rangers race is done.

And the 26-year-old knows it and has given up.

Kelly is the new number two, and McCrorie is surplus.

Why McCrorie wasn’t deemed good enough we don’t really know, but then the same argument has been used by fans, in the past, in favour of James Tavernier and Connor Goldson:

‘Well, 4 managers in a row have stuck by them so I know who I trust’ – ergo 4+ managers haven’t gone with McCrorie so we know who we trust as well?

Well, no, those 4 managers have won paltry amounts of silverware with the bad decisions made since 2018 so we don’t trust any of them.

And we sure don’t trust Philippe Clement any more than any predecessor, so his decision to bring back Kelly and dump McCrorie isn’t borne from any more logic than anything else in the past.

We just wish McCrorie the best and wish it had been different for him.
