In a jaw-dropping Old Firm derby, Rangers keeper Robby McCrorie’s phenomenal save from Matt O’Riley left both fans and Sky Sports commentator Ian Crocker utterly amazed.
The stunning 3-0 victory for Rangers at Ibrox, fueled by goals from Todd Cantwell, John Souttar, and Fashion Sakala, marked Michael Beale’s first Old Firm win.
As the match progressed with a 2-0 lead, McCrorie’s game-changing save kept Celtic from gaining ground, preserving the Rangers’ advantage.
O’Riley, the Danish midfielder, skillfully maneuvered around Souttar and seemed certain to score before McCrorie expertly deflected the shot high over the crossbar, leaving Crocker and co-commentator Andy Walker in awe.
Walker recounted the pivotal moment live on Sky Sports:
"“O’Riley’s all over him, advancing here on Souttar, makes a yard of space, but look at the reaction save from McCrorie, he’s out on his six-yard line, high to his left, really good save from him.”"
McCrorie’s extraordinary performance on Saturday undoubtedly impressed manager Michael Beale.
With Allan McGregor potentially leaving the team, the 25-year-old’s recent display may have nudged Beale to consider McCrorie as a worthy replacement.
Equally adept at goalkeeping and sweeping up loose balls, the third-choice goalie showcased his abilities on the field, possibly hinting at a more prominent role next season.
Taking center stage in a fiercely contested match, McCrorie proved himself as a force to be reckoned with and secured his future at Ibrox.
In a game filled with talent, this young keeper emerged as arguably the best Rangers player on the pitch.
Undoubtedly, Robby McCrorie’s extraordinary performance has left a lasting impression on everyone present at the Old Firm derby.
