Exclusive: Paul Robinson claims Rangers 28-yr-old he rates 'Very highly' may quit Ibrox
Paul Robinson claimed that Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham may have to exit Ibrox in order to get regular playing time.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the ex-England goalkeeper shared that he rated Foderingham very highly and suggested that at this stage of his career, the Gers keeper will want to be playing every game.
Foderingham is the Gers’ second-choice keeper behind Allan McGregor and has only made three appearances across all competitions this season as a result.
Robinson admitted that Foderingham could continue to bide his time at Ibrox and wait for an opportunity but stated that if the 28-year-old wasn’t set to play every match soon then he would end up having to leave Rangers.
When asked if Foderingham should remain patient and stay at Ibrox, Robinson told Football Insider: “He is a very talented keeper but when you’re in a team like that and a part of something good, you’re just biding you’re time and waiting for an opportunity.
“I rate him as a goalkeeper, I rate him very highly, I think he’s very good.

“You’ve got someone like McGregor in front of you, at his age and that stage of his career if he’s not going to play every game, he isn’t going to stay there forever.
“Maybe he sees an endgame or an opportunity coming, and maybe the manager has spoken to him and just said ,’bide your time’.”
The 28-year-old shot-stopper has kept two clean sheets and only conceded one goal in his three outings across all competitions this season.
Foderingham joined the Gers on a free transfer from Swindon Town in July 2015 and his current contract is set to expire at the end of the season.
