RANGERS midfielder Ross McCrorie is set to leave Ibrox on loan as Portsmouth and Shrewsbury Town eye a deal until the end of the season.

Light Blues boss Steven Gerrard has added seven players - including Steven Davis and Joe Aribo - to his squad this summer and McCrorie could find his chances of first team football limited in the coming months.

Portsmouth are the favourites to clinch a deal for McCrorie as the 21-year-old gets set to head south of the border to continue his development after making 50 appearances over the last two terms for Rangers.

Pompey narrowly missed out promotion to the Championship last season and Fratton Park boss Kenny Jackett is set to beat Shrewsbury to the signing of McCrorie this summer.
