Aberdeen star Ross McCrorie has been called into the Scotland camp ahead of today’s Nations League contest with Slovakia after the Rangers loanee’s impressive 2020/21 start.

The versatile midfielder, who can play centre-back or right-back, left Rangers for the Dons in the summer. It’s a switch that will become permanent after Rangers allowed him to sign a clause allowing the Pittodrie club to keep him in red beyond this term.

It already looks like an inspired move, the Rangers academy product shining in midfield for boss Derek McInnes so far this term.

 

It’s form that has earned him a place in Steve Clarke’s senior Scotland side.

McCrorie is used to pulling on the navy blue at youth level, having captained the U21s for some time now. But following the youth side’s 2-0 win over Czech Republic on Friday, in which McCrorie scored, Clarke will pull him up to senior level.

Alongside the midfielder, fellow Aberdeen man Andy Considine has been called up whilst John McGinn’s brother Paul also receives a spot in the squad.
