Hibs’ target Ross McCrorie looks to be on his way out of Rangers as manager Steven Gerrard has ruled out a further loan move.

McCrorie is of interest to Jack Ross who tried to sign him for Sunderland when he was manager there and Gerrard conformed that Hibs have been in touch about a move for the 22 year old but reports suggest that there is a considerable difference between both clubs’ valuation. Reports suggest a bid in the region of £200k was rejected by the Ibrox board.

When questioned last night about the McCrorie’s future and that of fellow midfielder Greg Docherty (pictutred above) who spent the second past of last season at Easter Road last night Gerrard said: Ross and Greg will not be going on loan. They have been on two loans. They have done that road. If we get bids that we like, that are good enough and big enough, we will consider them.

“Or if they come to me and say ‘I want to go, it’s time’, these are all the things you have to consider.

“Hull are in for Greg Docherty so he has had permission to speak to them. We have had some interest from Hibs in Ross McCrorie. Those talks are ongoing.”

McCrorie was on-loan to Portsmouth last season and impressed there.
