Glasgow Rangers have confirmed that Robby McCrorie has joined Livingston on loan for the 2020/21 Scottish Premiership campaign.
The 22-year-old goalkeeper spent the previous season on loan, firstly with Queen of the South and then Livingston. After conceding nine goals in eight matches and keeping two clean sheets, the latter have decided that they want to take him back for the entirety of the 2020/21 campaign.
This is a move which probably makes sense for all involved. McCrorie will now get some much-needed playing time, which he would probably struggle to obtain at Ibrox with Allan McGregor and now Jon McLaughlin ahead of him in the pecking order, whilst the ‘Gers can now see him develop and potentially blossom into a shot-stopper who could challenge for the number one shirt in the future.
Are you happy with this move for McCrorie?
These ‘Gers fans seem absolutely delighted with this news and they have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts. You can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below:
Robby McCrorie going out on loan for the full season at Livingston is a no brainer. Like Stephen Kelly this is exactly what the club want as it’s going to show if they can cope in the top tier of Scottish football.

Perfect decision imo. Hopefully has a class season with Livi, then get up the road and be our number 1 💙 https://t.co/RnRkY5vO8H

Great move as long as we don’t do a Liam Kelly with him https://t.co/4YDXyVaowF

Massive season for Robby, hopefully he’s good enough to step up 21/22 whether that be our no1 or one last loan spell at a bigger club than Livi. https://t.co/ElRINXwjFC
