Rangers goalkeeper Aidan McAdams is in advanced talks to join Northern Ireland outfit Portadown on loan, Football Insider understands.

The 20-year-old has only recently returned to Rangers after spending the first half of the season on loan at Scottish League Two side Edinburgh City.

A source at Rangers has told Football Insider that Steven Gerrard’s side are happy to send him out on loan again so that he can continue his development as he’s well down the pecking order at Ibrox.

Rangers have a wealth of goalkeepers at their disposal at Ibrox with Allan McGregor, Wes Foderingham and Andy Firth all in the first-team squad while McAdams, Kieran Wright, Robby McCrorie, Brian Kinnear all compete in the Academy sides.

The young shot-stopper arrived at Ibrox from Old Firm rivals Celtic in 2017 after coming through the youth ranks at Parkhead, with the Gers believed to have agreed on a deal which could rise to £150,000 to sign him.

McAdams managed 13 appearances in League Two for Edinburgh City this season, keeping two clean sheets and only conceding 16 goals.

The Glasgow-born shot-stopper also previously had a loan spell with Annan Athletic but he managed to feature only three times for them, conceding five goals in the process.

Portadown are currently top of the NIFL Championship and they are hoping the imminent arrival of McAdams will boost their chances of winning promotion back to the Northern Ireland Premiership.
