McCrorie hopes to break into senior set-up
ROBBY McCRORIE hopes to become the latest goalkeeper to use Livingston as a launchpad to international recognition after rejoining the Lions on loan from Rangers.
The precocious 22-yearold is already Scotland’s number one at under-21 level and sees no reason why he cannot make the step up to the senior set-up if he shines in the Premiership.
History suggests it is a realistic prospect for the Ibrox youngster, given Liam Kelly was named in Alex McLeish’s squad in March of last year following a string of fine displays at Livi during the 2018/19 campaign.
Matija Sarkic also won his maiden cap for Montenegro as a reward for some superb showings between the sticks while on loan from Aston Villa last season.
After signing a year-long deal, McCrorie said: “I want to be consistent every week and establish myself as a top goalkeeper in this league.
“I want to do well for Livingston and push for the national team.
“I’m in the Premiership so if I’m doing the right things week-in, week-out then that can hopefully come.”
McCrorie was recently handed a new three-year deal at Rangers, underlining the faith the Glasgow giants have in him. The youngster says that deal will only spur him on to work harder.
McCrorie continued: “Rangers have shown faith in me and I’ve got that sense of security. But I still want to improve a hell of a lot more and, with that new contract, it’s more motivation to keep the head down and work hard. This is another important year for me.”
