McRorie is a real keeper...

Evening Times - - SPORT - By CHRIS JACK

ROB­BIE HORN has backed on-loan Rangers keeper Robby McCrorie to shine be­tween the sticks.

The Light Blues kid has made 19 ap­pear­ances for Ber­wick so far this term af­ter clinch­ing a loan deal to the League Two out­fit in the sum­mer.

His lat­est out­ing came in the 1-1 draw with Ed­in­burgh City on Sat­ur­day and Shielfield boss Horn has been im­pressed with the 19-year-old.

He said: “To be hon­est, I didn’t think Robby made out­stand­ing saves. He just looked like a really solid goal­keeper.

“He dealt with ev­ery­thing that came to him and he is a pres­ence.

“He is a fan­tas­tic goal­keeper and it is his at­ti­tude as well. He has got a fan­tas­tic at­ti­tude.

“He is a very like­able guy as well and he has got his head screwed on so I think he will go on to big­ger and bet­ter things. We are lucky to have him, that is for sure.”
