Steven Gerrard Insists Portsmouth Have ‘No Deal’ to Sign Ross McCrorie Permanently

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard insists Portsmouth have no option to buy Ross McCrorie at the end of the midfielder’s upcoming loan spell.

The 21-year-old holding midfield player has been sent out on-loan to English League One side Portsmouth for the 2019/20 season, with Gers manager Gerrard keen for McCrorie to gain more first-team experience south of the border.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of tomorrow night’s Europa League qualifier against St. Jospeh’s, Gerrard was asked about McCrorie’s situation, and was pretty emphatic:

So, there you have it – Ross McCrorie should remain a Rangers player for a ‘long time’, according to Gerrard.
