6 Robby McCrorie transfer destinations as Rangers keeper eyed by clubs after rejecting contract

It would now be a surprise if Robby McCrorie stayed at Rangers beyond the summer transfer window.

The news that the goalkeeper turned down a new contract and had months before submitted a written transfer request, which has not since been withdrawn, means that an Ibrox exit looks very likely. McCrorie has been a back-up his entire career and doesn't have many games under his belt aged 26, so his desire to seek first team football is understandable.

He has shown his quality at times when he has been given an opportunity and has also been in Scotland squads, so would make a very good number one for somebody. There has reportedly already been interest from the Scottish Premiership, where he knows he would likely have to take a pay cut, and down south.

As a result, Football Scotland has decided to take a look at some potential destinations.

Aberdeen

This is the most obvious one given there has already been a serious link with Aberdeen interested. Kelle Roos is moving on and new boss Jimmy Thelin is in need of a new number one. He probably has targets he knows of from Sweden or previous scouting but then again a custodian with Scottish football experience could really help.

Hibs

Another big Scottish club in need of a new man between the sticks after veteran David Marshall came to the end of his deal without fresh terms being agreed. The Hibees are thought to have money to spend with billionaire Bill Foley's involvement and there has been a suggestion Gers will seek six figures.

Kilmarnock

Killie has been mooted as a possible destination with an interest shown. Derek McInnes' side have European football on the horizon and are unlikely to go anywhere in terms of challenging at the top end of the Premiership. McCrorie is reportedly aware he would have to take a pay cut to stay in the Premiership so that may not be an issue.

Motherwell

The Steelmen are another Scottish club said to have shown an interest. Ironically, Liam Kelly could be on the way to Ibrox after leaving Fir Park on a free and McCrorie could potentially be seen as an upgrade for them should they land him.

Wrexham

Wrexham are hopeful of getting Arsenal youngster Arthur Okonkwo back on loan for next season, but if they don't they will have to look elsewhere. McCrorie definitely has the potential to play higher than League One but the Welsh side will have the same ambitions and won't expect to be staying in that division for long.

Swansea

The Swans will need a new goalkeeper this summer with Carl Rushworth heading back to Brighton after his loan. Luke Williams still has Andy Fisher to call on but he has been error prone and McCrorie would be an upgrade.
