Last updated : 05 August 2020 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have tonight been linked with a move for Rangers youngster Ross McCrorie.

According to the Glasgow Evening Times, Hibs boss Jack Ross is keen to bring the youngster to Easter Road.

The Hibees are set to sell Florian Kamberi to Swiss side St Gallen for a fee of around £150,000, and it's thought they will use this money to make an offer for the 22-year-old.

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard is said to be keen to keep the player, so a loan deal might be Hibs only chance to loan the player.

McCrorie spent last season on loan with Portsmouth, and impressed in English League One, and it seems they are also keen to sign McCrorie on another loan deal.

He has also had previous loan spells with Ayr Utd and Dumbarton, as well as playing over 40 times or the Ibrox club.

McCrorie would be an excellent signing for the Hibees.

An exciting up and coming young player that they could develop at the club.

Would £150,000 be enough to sign him? possibly not.

Hibs, of course, also tried to sign his twin brother Robby in January, but he signed for Livingston on loan.
