The Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern are still in a state of shock after last week’s managerial events, though have been happy to celebrate three wins on the spin for the first time in months. Indeed, after seeing the Gers edge past Ross County over the weekend, the punters propping up our bar are happy.
In fact, even more so now after seeing reports emerge in the Daily Record. According to them, those behind the scenes at Ibrox are ready to open talks with Ross McCrorie over a new deal in Glasgow, following his breakthrough this season.
The 19-year-old was initially drafted into the first-team under Pedro Caixinha after an injury crisis, though has looked comfortable in the starting XI and is now pushing to be one of the first names on the team sheet. An academy graduate, this news has absolutely delighted our drinkers.
Director of football Mark Allen will reportedly take a leading role in negotiations to extend a deal that runs out in May 2019 and our local Light Blues hope he does a better job with McCrorie than finding a new manager!
McCorie has been one of few shining lights this season and the idea of securing his long-term future will go some way into getting supporters back on side. It’s a big test for Mark Allen, though, who has barely covered himself in glory during the club’s managerial hunt.
