Exclusive: McNamara suggests Rangers 28-yr-old may seal late Ibrox exit


Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham could find himself a wanted man heading into the final days of the transfer window, according to Jackie McNamara.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Scotland international says that the shot-stopper was performing well at Ibrox before the arrival of former Gers ace Allan McGregor last summer, the Scottish keeper Steven Gerrard’s first choice between the sticks.

As a result of McGregor’s arrival, Foderingham was limited to just eight appearances across all competitions, although he was on the bench for the majority of other games.

McNamara says that the 28-year-old will be wanting to play football and that his hunt for game time could lead to clubs making a move before the window slams shut, although he admits Gerrard will not want to get rid too easily.

“I thought he did well before McGregor came in,” McNamara told Football Insider.

“McGregor had a great season last year so he’s had to sit and watch from the sidelines. You’d imagine he’d be wanting to play.

“Something might come of that in the next week but Gerrard will be happy he’s got two good goalkeepers there.”

Foderingham has a total of 139 games under his belt for the Gers, having joined the Glasgow giants on a free transfer back in 2015.

He has played one of the club’s Europa League qualifying matches this summer, starting in the second leg against St Joseph’s after a 4-0 victory in the first-leg.

In other Rangers news, McNamara says that things look “pretty bad for the club” after an important development at Ibrox.
