24-year-old facing four-game fight to save Rangers career after double bombshell reports


After what many will dub a disappointing season, Rangers have got some serious work to do in the summer if they are to get anywhere securing some silverware next year.

The Light Blues might have some top talents at their disposal but there are not enough in the starting XI, and the quality in depth is not there in case of enforced absences through injury or suspension.

As such, even with the future of Graeme Murty up in the air, it appears as though director of football Mark Allen has already got things underway ahead of the summer window.

The Scottish Sun claim that the Gers are ready to offer goalkeeper Allan McGregor a stunning return to Ibrox on a free transfer at the end of the season, with a two-year contract mooted.

The arrival of the veteran shot stopper, who made 250 appearances for Rangers before leaving for Besiktas, will no doubt put pressure on the current options in Govan, with Wes Foderingham and Jak Alnwick having battled it out for a place between the sticks.

Of the pair, it has been Foderingham who has been the firm first choice, with 37 appearances across all competitions, the former Newcastle man with just six.

However, while McGregor’s arrival might come as a big blow to Alnwick, another bombshell might just have handed him the chance to save his career at Ibrox.

The Daily Record have claimed that Foderingham is now out of action with a shoulder injury until the end of the season, and that Alnwick will now feature in the last four games, starting with the Old Firm clash against Celtic on Sunday.

With the end of the season looming, the 24-year-old knows these could well be his final four games with the Gers – but impressing could see him handed a lifeline.

In other Rangers news, Graeme Murty must ensure the club must follow in the footsteps of Celtic ahead of derby day.
