Gerrard green lights January exit of Rangers 26yo who's 'played his last game' - Ibrox Sources
Rangers will offload Jak Alnwick for good next summer if they cannot agree a deal to sell him in January, Football Insider can reveal.
Steven Gerrard has no plans to reintroduce him into the Light Blues squad despite his starring role on loan at Blackpool this season.
Ibrox sources have told Football Insider that the goalkeeper has no future at Rangers and will be allowed to leave on a free at the end of the season if a permanent deal next month can’t be agreed.
One source said that Alnwick has “played his last game” for the club”.
This comes after Football Insider revealed this week that talks are underway with Blackpool over Alnwick moving on a permanent deal in January.
This offers the last opportunity for Rangers to secure a fee for the keeper, who joined them in January 2016 when Mark Warburton was manager.

There is set to be a shake-up of the goalkeepers at Ibrox as Wes Foderingham is also out of contract at the end of the season.
Allan McGregor is firmly established as the number one and is on the verge of being handed a new contract, but the identity of his deputies beyond January is unclear.
Alnwick has made a mainstay of the promotion-chasing Blackpool team during this campaign.
He has started all 19 of their league matches and conceded just 22 goals to help them to fourth position in the table.
The former England Under-20 international has made just 11 appearances for Rangers since being signed in Warburton’s last window as manager.
