Glasgow Rangers continued their impressive early season form with a 3-0 victory against St. Johnstone on Wednesday.
The Gers came into the game on the back of two victories against Aberdeen and St. Mirren, who they beat 1-0 and 3-0 respectively and, with Celtic’s match against the latter postponed following Boli Bolingoli’s breach of pandemic regulations, the Ibrox outfit knew they could go five points clear of their fierce rivals with a win – goals from Ryan Kent, Joe Aribo and Borna Barisic made sure that was the case.
After the match, Steven Gerrard was asked about the future of both Greg Docherty and Ross McCrorie, and he confirmed that both players could be sold this summer – the former has been given permission to talk to Hull, whilst Hibernian are interested in the latter.
The boss’ comments have attracted plenty of attention from the Gers supporters, and it is fair to say that they are not happy with Gerrard’s comments. After all, they are both young, and they both have quality – McCrorie has been hailed by Gerrard himself as a potential future captain, whilst Docherty managed five assists in seven games whilst on loan with Hibs during the second half of last term.
Should Rangers sell McCrorie and Docherty?

As a Rangers fan I’d be absolutely gutted to lose Greg Doch. But if I’m thinking for the player, Hull would be a great move. He would walk in an English championship team

Strange to see McCrorie potentially leaving Rangers. The many fans I have spoken to seem to rate him as a prospect. But if the rumours that Hibs are interested in bringing him in are true then it will be excellent for his career in the long term.

If Ross McCrorie and Greg Docherty are sold by Rangers I’m afraid I will have no more confidence in Steven Gerrard

Joke! Mcrorie should be in the 1st team!

Find it strange that Gerrard said McCrorie was a “future captain” but now he’s selling him 🤔
