'Busy few weeks' - Insider claims second Rangers goalkeeper close to Ibrox exit

Rangers goalkeeper Jak Alnwick is close to an Ibrox exit, according to a club insider, as Steven Gerrard clears his squad out to make way for new signings.

According to Four Lads Had A Dream on Twitter, Alnwick is joined by Joe Dodoo and Liam Kelly as being close to leaving the Light Blues.

Kelly has already confirmed his Gers exit as he prepares to join Livingston while reports claim Dodoo is poised to join Blackpool on loan.

Football Insider verdict:

Alwnick is never going to displace Wes Foderingham or Allan McGregor as number one at Ibrox and a move makes sense for the keeper. Despite impressing in the final few games of the season, Alnwick still always looked a bit uncomfortable and was already well behind Foderingham before the Gers even signed McGregor. With Robby McCrorie getting closer to being ready for first-team football it only adds even more pressure on Alnwick. Hopefully, the Gers can get a decent fee for him although, with his chances of games looking almost nil, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see his deal ended early. He’ll no doubt thrive somewhere else once he leaves Rangers but he was never likely to be anything more than a backup keeper from the moment he signed. At 24, getting regular games will be vital at this stage of Alnwick’s career too and he won’t want to spend it sat in the stands watching the Gers.
