Michael Beale insists keeper Robby McCrorie won't be fazed by an Old Firm outing if he retains the Rangers gloves this weekend.

The 25-year-old made his first appearance of the campaign in the win over Aberdeen as Todd Cantwell netted the only goal of the game.

McCrorie was given a chance to prove his worth as Allan McGregor and Jon McLaughlin get set to head for the Ibrox exit door this summer.

It was a fine performance from the Auchenhowie graduate as he made an impressive stop to deny Duk and was a commanding presence throughout.

McCrorie was between the sticks for the win over Celtic at the start of last season and Beale now has a decision to make ahead of derby day at Ibrox.

Beale said: “Robby had a really strong performance and the save earlier in the game came at a big moment.

“He looked really assured having not played for so long so fair play to him for getting a clean sheet.

“I spoke to Robby the first week I came in and there is an element of trust there.

“He has had a couple of injuries but he has been over-ready for a while now.

“We have three good keepers including a young one who needs exposure and an opportunity.

“He wants the chance to show he is a really good goalkeeper. I see him every day and we are on the same page.

“The last Old Firm game he played I was there with him as well. I don't think he will be phased playing in an Old Firm game."

It was a low key afternoon for Rangers as they returned to winning ways following their Scottish Cup semi-final defeat at Hampden.

Beale gave a number of fringe players an outing at Ibrox but lost one of the stalwarts of his side as Ben Davies hobbled off and was replaced by John Souttar.

Beale said: "I think it might a slight problem with his hamstring. We will assess it in the next 24 hours and see.

"I thought Ben actually started the game well. I thought John came on and done very well as well."
