Exclusive Q&A – Jordan Thompson

Rangers Away Days caught up with new Rangers signing Jordan Thompson to discuss what it means for him to sign for Rangers, and what he hopes to achieve throughout his time at the club over the coming years.

Name: Jordan Thompson

Age: 18

Twitter: @x88_j

1) How does it feel that you have now become a Rangers player?

A: To be a Rangers player is an incredible feeling, growing up in Belfast its every kids dream to play for Rangers, therefore it’s very special for me.

2) What are your future career ambitions?

A: My future goals are to make a name for myself at Rangers and to be part of this amazing journey were on to get the club back to where we belong. Also, I aim to be a full international player for my country – it would be a dream come true for me to be a full international for Northern Ireland!

3) How would you rate your youth career so far? (Highs/Lows)

A: I would rate my youth career highly as I have a lot of time ahead of me still. Being at Manchester United for four years where I learnt a lot was a high. However, you could say that being let go at the end of the season was a low although it has worked out better for my career as now I’m playing 1st team football at the most successful club in the world.

4) What do you make of Rangers overall? (faciltities/staff)

A: Rangers are huge and to be a part of this great club with a lot of history behind us and a bright future ahead of us is very exciting. The facilities are top class as you have access to everything you need. The staff have been amazing and are really easy to talk to about anything. They are always positive and are wanting me to learn every day to make the club bigger and better.

5) How did it feel making your Ibrox debut in the game versus Burnley?

A: To play in front of 22,000 fans against a very good Burnley side was unbelievable. Growing up as a Rangers fan, to play at Ibrox knowing the history of the club and knowing the players who have played there in the past was magic. Honestly a dream come true for myself, my family and my friends.

6) Do you think the first team has what it takes to gain promotion?

A: Without a doubt we have what it takes. We already have shown against Burnley and Hibernian the quality we have and have displayed our hard work ethic. We are a hungry group and want to learn every day to get better and better.

Exclusive Q&A – Ross McCrorie

Zak Rudden of Scotland

Exclusive Q&A – Ross McCrorie

Rangers Away Days caught up with Rangers Youth player Ross McCrorie to discuss his time as a Rangers Youth player, and what he hopes to achieve throughout his time at the club over the coming years.

Name: Ross McCrorie

Age: 17

Position: Defender

Twitter: @RossMcCrorie4

1) At what age did you first sign for Rangers, and how did it feel signing for such a large club?

A: I first signed for Rangers when I was just nine years old after being on trial for a couple of months. It was one of the proudest moments of my life. The thought of signing for the team I had supported from day one was the best feeling ever.

2) What are you future career ambitions?

A: I would like to eventually get into the first team and secure a starting place then hopefully be known as one of the best players at the club. I’d also like to win as many trophies as possible and represent my country by playing in the Scotland first team.

3) How would you rate your youth career so far? (Highs/Lows)

A: Starting with the highs, last season was one of the best yet. I was playing for the U20’s most weeks whilst still only being an U17 and training with the first team a few times was a good experience. I was also made captain of my U17 team at Rangers and Scotland which was an absolute honour. This season is my first year at U20’s technically for my age but I’ve already played a lot of last season with them. I was selected as captain for the U20’s for this upcoming season which was an amazing feeling and I have already trained with the first team a few times which I hope to build on and impress the manager as much as possible. However, a low was being beat in two finals against Celtic in the Glasgow Cup and the Youth Cup which was really disappointing but I have to move on from that and take it as a learning experience.

4) Do you feel that you have a future at Rangers with regards to progressing to senior football?

A: Of course I feel I have a future at the club. If I didn’t think that then I wouldn’t be playing for Rangers. It would be a dream come true if I could make it to the first team and play week in week out.

5) What do you make of Rangers overall? (Facilities/Staff)

A: Murray Park and Ibrox are one of the best facilities in Britain which really shows how big the club is. Using these facilities every day is fantastic as other teams do not have these facilities for everyday use. Ibrox is just exceptional as it shows the true class of Rangers Football Club.

6) How does it feel playing alongside your brother? (Robby McCrorie)

A: If I’m being honest it just feels normal. I don’t really think about it that much but people are usually surprised seeing twins in the same team. I suppose we are really lucky to be playing alongside each other as we know each other so well which helps us in our games.

7) What has been your favourite highlight of your Rangers career so far?

A: My favourite highlight was signing my professional full-time contract with the club as it’s the one club I want to succeed the most and has been the team I have supported since I was born.

8) Do you think the first team has what it takes to gain promotion this year?

A: Yes I do. After the result against Hibs at the weekend it sets a statement of intent to all the other clubs that we mean business this season and will do anything to win.
