ROBBY McCrorie is hoping to emulate his brother’s success in the game and challenge for the number one jersey at Morton.

The Rangers youngster joined the Ton on loan until the end of the season.

Robby’s twin brother Ross enjoyed loan spells with Ayr United and Dumbarton before establishing himself in the first team fold at the Ibrox club last year.

The pair are close to each other – even sharing a flat – as well as training together on a regular basis.

Ross has been a regular in Steven Gerrard’s squad, playing 18 times this campaign.

And Robby, who also had a spell on loan at Berwick Rangers last season, is hoping his stint in Greenock will help have a similar impact on his career as it did for his sibling.

He told the Tele: “Last year I was on loan at Berwick in League Two, and I gained a lot from that.

“I feel like I developed a lot and my brother is the perfect example of the benefit of loans. Look how he is kicking on in terms of his career, hopefully I can emulate what he’s done.

“I’m happy to be at Morton. It’s great knowing the staff here, the gaffer and [Peter] Houston from international duty with the Scotland Under-21s.

“Me and my brother speak all the time, we live in a flat together and we train together as well. 

“We both discuss our situations and we get on really well. It makes a difference and push each other on. I really wanted to come here as Gats [Derek Gaston] is very experienced at this level, and I feel I can learn a lot from him. He’s been at the club for a number of years.

“It’s a good opportunity on and off the field to pick his brains, and also the goalkeeping coach as well. It’s new faces and I’m just looking to take as much experience as I can from as many people as I can — it can only benefit me.”
