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.

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.
