'It was a pleasure' - Rangers stopper confirms Ibrox exit in touching Instagram post

Rangers goalkeeper Liam Kelly has confirmed his Ibrox exit in a touching post on Instagram – after reports linked him with a move to Scottish Premiership new boys Livingston.

The 22-year-old posted a photo of him as a child in a Rangers top with the caption “14 years and out. Rangers, it was a pleasure” on his personal Instagram account.

According to the Scottish Sun, Kelly is set to join Livingston on a two-year deal following his departure from Ibrox after previously enjoying a loan spell at the Tony Macaroni Arena.

The signing of Scotland international Allan McGregor pushed Kelly into fourth-choice leaving the 22-year-old little option but to seek a move away.

Football Insider verdict:

Kelly has been a great servant of the club and it is arguably only a bit of poor timing that has stopped him from making his mark at Ibrox. The 22-year-old isn’t quite there yet in terms of being able to challenge for the number one jersey. Moving away from Ibrox will let Kelly get regular games and establish himself somewhere and, if he impresses, there is always the chance of a return in the future. If Kelly does join Livingston then he’ll be going to a familiar set-up after a spell on loan with the Lions two seasons ago. The shot-stopper helped the West Lothian side to the League One title during his time there and would o doubt love to make a similar impact this time around as they try to consolidate their place in the top-flight. Wherever he ends up, they will be getting a quality goalkeeper with bags of potential.
