Robby McCrorie 'rejects' Rangers contract offer after submitting transfer request

Robby McCrorie has rejected a new contract offer from Rangers months after submitting a transfer request, according to a report.

The goalkeeper, 26, has played understudy to various Ibrox number ones of the years and is keen to get out and be a regular himself somewhere. He had made that clear to club officials in January and hoped to even go out on loan at that point but Gers couldn't afford to let him go at that stage of the season.

It has now emerged that he submitted a formal transfer request. However, Light Blues chiefs didn't give up hope of persuading him to stay and offered him a new deal on improved terms this summer. He has turned that down, according to the Daily Record, and looks set to move on this summer.

McCrorie has international ambitions with Scotland but knows he needs to be playing regular club football first. That was partly behind his desire to leave in January with a place at Euro 2024 up for grabs.

Aberdeen have already shown an interest in the shotstopper, who has a year left on his current contract. He is highly rated at Ibrox but will remain number two as long as Jack Butland remains at the club. The report adds that Philippe Clement would be ready to hand McCrorie the number one spot if the Englishman was to move on.

Elsewhere in the goalkeeping department, Jon McLaughlin has already left and Rangers are close to adding Scotland squad man Liam Kelly to their ranks.
