Ross McCrorie joins Bristol City from Aberdeen
Ross McCrorie has officially signed with Bristol City from Aberdeen for an undisclosed fee.
McCrorie, a player who can perform both as a defender and midfielder, signed a three-year contract, which will last until June 2026, and has an option for a further year.
Following Rob Dickie's addition to the team, McCrorie's signing marks the Robins’ second acquisition of the summer.
The 25-year-old Scot completed a medical examination and will formally become a City player when the summer transfer window opens on June 14th.
McCrorie, whose professional journey includes an impressive track record of 115 appearances for Aberdeen over three years, has expressed excitement about his new venture.
“There is ambition at the club to progress, and for myself, it’s a new challenge and I think it's a good fit," he said.
McCrorie aims to make a significant impact at Bristol City, helping the club progress to new heights.
"I want to come here and make an impact, help the boys as much as I can and get to know them - I want to help a progressive club get to a new level,” McCrorie added.
The Scottish player progressed through the Rangers youth system, leading the Under-20s team as captain, and enjoyed loan stints at Ayr United, Dumbarton, and Portsmouth.
He joined Aberdeen in August 2020, initially on loan, before cementing his position with a permanent move to Pittodrie.
Over the years, he has averaged 38 games per season and ascended to the role of vice-captain.
McCrorie, who received his first call-up to the senior Scotland squad in June 2023, will join the Scotland squad in Spain.
Looking forward to the competition, McCrorie said, “My preference is in defence, between centre-back and right back as that’s where I’ve played the majority of my football over the last few years. Obviously I can step into a couple of positions and be versatile."
As he gears up for a new chapter in his football career, McCrorie remains focused on helping Bristol City excel.
"Everything's cut out for the club to push up the table and towards the play-offs and promotion,” he concluded.
