Foderingham jokes what he was 'unsure' about with Rangers January signing
Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham has singled out Russell Martin for praise after his January move to Ibrox – saying the 32-year-old has been “great” for Graeme Murty’s side.
Martin joined the Gers on loan from Norwich City until the end of the season and has immediately slotted straight into the starting XI at Ibrox.
The 29-times capped Scottish international has settled in at the Gers quickly and netted his first goal for the club against Hearts in Saturday’s 2-0 win at Ibrox.
Foderingham joked he was “unsure” of the defender’s knee-slide celebration after his late strike sealed the three points.
“Russell Martin has been great since coming in although I’m a bit unsure of what he was doing with his celebration on Saturday,” Foderingham said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

Martin has made seven appearances for the Gers since his move from Carrow Road and has helped Murty’s side to wins in seven of their last eight games since the winter break.
The 32-year-old could face a fight for his place with Portuguese veteran Bruno Alves fit again and looking to book his place in his country’s squad at this summer’s World Cup in Russia.
Foderingham signed a new deal earlier in the season to keep him at Ibrox until 2020 after being a huge success since his move from Swindon in 2015.
The goalkeeper has made 124 appearances for the Gers and fought off competition from Cammy Bell, Matt Gilks and Jak Alnwick for the number one sport at Ibrox.
