Robby McCrorie has suggested he wants to stay on loan at Livingston, insisting his focus is on ‘finishing the job’ at the Tony Macaroni.

The goalkeeper was due to spend the rest of the 2019/20 season with Gary Holt’s side from Rangers, but the campaign is now on hold due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

It is currently unclear when, or even if, the season will resume, but it does look very likely there won’t be any football for months.

Despite the uncertainty, McCrorie has expressed his desire to help Livi even if it means going beyond the existing terms of his loan (his spell is due to end on May 31).


He said (Daily Record): “The loan deal has gone really well for me.

“I came here in January to get Premiership football under my belt and I have managed that.

“There’s eight games left, Livingston are on course for a top-six finish which would be excellent, and I want to stay to finish the job.

“I’d be gutted if I never got to do that. I reckon if the season was extended my loan deal would be too so that was covered.”

McCrorie’s wishes understandable

It is understandable McCrorie would want to finish things at Livi given how he’s performed for Holt’s side, and the regular minutes he has been afforded which is vital.

Following on from the first half of the season at Queen of the South, the Scotland U21 international has impressed at the Tony Macaroni, despite keeping just two clean sheets in eight appearances.

The situation right now is very complicated, so it remains to be seen if McCrorie will get his wish of an extension.
