Portsmouth are confident they’ve won the race for Ross McCrorie.
The Blues were this afternoon putting the finishing touches to the Rangers man's season-long loan arrival at Fratton Park.
Pompey look to have fended off late interest from League One rivals Sunderland to secure the 21-year-old's signature.
McCrorie has been in the city today and at the club, ahead of official confirmation of a move which has been well received by the Fratton faithful.
It's been a different story north of the border, however, with Rangers fans angry at the prospect of losing a highly-regarded home-grown talent.
