Robby McCrorie is valued by Rangers at just £1 million with Premier League giants Manchester United a surprise destination for the Ibrox goalkeeper.
At least, so says the Scottish Sun.
And, while providing a list of clubs apparently interested in taking Robby McCrorie away from the Scottish Premiership giants, one name simply leaps off the page alongside the Hull Citys and the Rakow Czestochowas.
Given the ongoing uncertainty surrounding Dean Henderson’s future, Manchester United have spent much of the last few weeks chasing a back-up goalkeeper. Their pursuit is likely to be sped up, too, following an ill-timed injury to Tom Heaton.
And the Scottish Sun, backed up by the Daily Record, believe that McCrorie is a genuine target; Manchester United having scouted the former Scotland U21 international regularly over the last 12 months.
Man United could offer Robby McCrorie a Rangers exit
McCrorie will leave Rangers after Mick Beale’s side brought in Jack Butland, ironically enough after a spell at Old Trafford. The Glasgow giants want £1 million, but could accept £500,000 plus bonuses.
25-year-old McCrorie impressed during a spell in the Rangers’ XI towards the back end of last season. The one-time Livingston loanee caught the eye not only with his command of the penalty area but also with the speed of his distribution.
As epitomised by the discarding of David de Gea and the arrival of Andre Onana, any goalkeeper in Ten Hag’s team must be as comfortable with the ball at his feet as he is with it in his arms.

Zion Suzuki appeared to be Ten Hag’s number one target. But he opted to join Belgian outfit Sint Truiden instead due to his desire to play regular first-team football week-in, week-out.
“It is true that there was an offer from Manchester United,” Suzuki says, via Goal.
“Of course, I would like to go to Manchester United. But I really want to spend time thinking about what kind of future awaits me. After much thought, I made this decision (to go to Belgium instead).
“Right now, while I haven’t been able to play in Japan, Manchester United have signed (Andre) Onana,” Suzuki adds. “I’m aiming for the first-team. I’m aiming for the World Cup and, after that, I’m aiming to be the best in the world.
