Hill became a fan-favourite during his season at Ibrox, with his finest moment being the late equaliser he scored in the Old Firm derby against Celtic at Parkhead.
And despite leaving Scotland at the end of the 2016/17 season and currently playing his football for League Two side Carlisle United, Hill is clearly keeping a close eye on the goings on at his former club.
The 39-year-old was asked, via his Twitter account, what he made of Graeme Murty’s decision to move McCrorie from a centre-back to a defensive midfielder in recent games.
And while Hill was full of praise for how “easy” the youngster has made the transition look, he also appealed to the Rangers faithful to show patience with McCrorie’s development:
Ross has made it look so easy,a massive asset for the team and the club. Important we give him the time and space to learn his trade as a young player,without putting to much pressure on him. https://t.co/XJ4NTWo1Sf

McCrorie has been earning some fantastic reviews from fans since breaking into the Rangers team, and he’ll be hoping to add another impressive showing against St. Johnstone tomorrow afternoon.
