Rangers loanee Ross McCrorie has revealed that he has ‘loved’ his time at Portsmouth on loan this season.
With the League One season coming to an end via a points-per-game system, Kenny Jackett’s side missed out on an automatic promotion route to the Championship and will instead attempt to go up via the play-offs.
Due to face Oxford at the start of July over two legs, McCrorie, who has been a consistent performer this term, will be keen to help his side move up a division.
Having agreed a loan extension to stay on and play for Pompey over the course of the play-offs, McCrorie has now revealed how he thinks his season has gone so far.
The Scotland under-21 star, who featured for Portsmouth in a friendly with Brentford recently, said: “It took me a bit to settle in but I’ve loved it down here,” McCrorie told Portsmouth’s YouTube channel.
“The only thing I want is for the club to get promoted. That was the aim at the start of the season and we’re not far away from it now.
“Hopefully, we can step up to the challenge and get there in the end.”
Having appeared 17 times in League One this term for Portsmouth, McCrorie gained three assists.
Keeping McCrorie on at the club for the play-off competition is such a good piece of news for Jackett and Pompey fans. Indeed he has played 22 times across all competitions in either a holding midfield role or at right-back, chipping in with five assists in that time (Transfermarkt).
If Portsmouth can get themselves a promotion to the Championship, it would be a superb move if they then secure an even longer extension for the full-back/midfielder.
