Rangers youngster Ross McCormack has snubbed the chance to head out on loan, as he feels he will derive more benefit from playing alongside the likes of Dado Prso in training.

McCormack is rated highly in the corridors of Ibrox and is on the periphery of the first team in Glasgow.

Gers chief Alex McLeish had offered McCormack the chance to accrue some first team experience away from Ibrox, but the forward believes he will be better served playing alongside Prso and co. in training than moving on loan.

"I'm learning from Dado every day in training," McCormack told the Daily Record. "He has played in a European Cup final, in the World Cup and was man of the match against France. No average player does that.

"But there are other strikers at the club. Francis Jeffers' movement is unbelievable and I'm learning from these guys every day.

"They give you a lot of encouragement. If you are in their team in the training games they are pulling you with them, telling you what runs to make, what to do. It's just a learning curve.

"Charlie Adam has gone out on loan to St Mirren and has done well but that's a different level.

"I'm still only 19 and not interested in going anywhere while I'm getting the chances at Rangers.

"Playing reserve football is not great as it's not the hardest. But training with Rangers' first-team players every day you are going to learn a lot more than playing in the lower leagues in Scotland."
