Ross McCrorie was once touted as a future Glasgow Rangers captain by Steven Gerrard, but now he is playing his football elsewhere.
Earlier this month, the 22-year-old left Ibrox to join Aberdeen. He will first enjoy a loan move before making a permanent switch to Pittodrie next summer – the Dons will reportedly pay £350,000 for his services.
So far, he has played in every single minute for his new club – three matches in the Premiership and one in Europa League qualifying – and he appears to have settled rather quickly. So far, Aberdeen have won each of those matches and have conceded just one goal.
McCrorie impressed in the the Dons’ match this past weekend, against Hibernian, as he picked up a 7.3 SofaScore rating – he landed 88% of his passes, for example, and also made four tackles. His Man of the Match display attracted the attention of the Gers supporters, who took the opportunity to lament the 54-time Scottish champions’ decision to sell him.
Are you happy the club have sold Ross McCrorie?

I see Ross McCrorie has morphed into David Silva.

There’s that then there is just nonsense on here. Mccrorie will Catapult the sheep up the table just by himself. Celtic will be challenged for 2nd place because of him. Letting him go was one of the worst decisions we’ve made in a very long time

Honestly wish we’d have given McCrorie a decent chance and pushed Jack forward a little. Lad was a future captain for me and has always had ability. Understand moving players on as we have 790 wingers but he was one to keep for me.

Sickens me Gerrard let him leave after his comments about a future captain a couple of years ago after an old firm. https://t.co/YXnP22Owq8
