Queen of the South have confirmed that Robby McCrorie has signed on a season-long loan from Rangers.

It may only be a loan, but this is a great addition for Allan Johnston’s men.

New Queen of the South stopper McCrorie will be a Premiership goalkeeper one day

At the Ton McCrorie really thrived. He managed to keep six clean sheets in 15 league appearances at Cappielow.

 

That includes a run of three clean sheets in a row towards the end of his Morton spell. Before he arrived, they had kept four in the league all season.

McCrorie will provide QOTS assurance from the back. He may only be 21-years-old, but through his commandment of his box and excellent shot-stopping, the young stopper provides a calming presence to a backline.

He’s a Premiership level goalkeeper and Johnston is lucky to get him. It may only be temporary, but the keeper will do his adopted side the world of good this season.

It’s a surprise no Premiership teams have had interest in him. He’s probably ready for that step and a few teams like Livingston and Kilmarnock could have been doing with a keeper like him.

McCrorie is a real coup for the Championship side.
