Rangers mainstay likely to have played last game for club due to huge Thurs development - report
By Richard Parks
Wes Foderingham is likely to have played his last game for the club as Hull City goalkeeper Allan McGregor prepares to undergo a Thursday medical at Rangers, according to a report.
The Scottish Sun claims that director of football Mark Allen has tied up the capture of Scotland international McGregor and he will undergo physical tests before signing a two-year contract.
It is said that the 36-year-old will complete his shock return to Ibrox in the next 24 hours to herald a shake-up of the club’s goalkeeping roster.
The Scottish Sun report that Rangers plan to install McGregor as the new number one and cash in on Foderingham, who has been the first-choice keeper since joining from Swindon Town in the summer of 2015.
It means Foderingham is likely to have played his last game for the club as he has a shoulder injury that will force him out of Sunday’s league showdown against Celtic amid fears he will miss the rest of the campaign.

Football Insider verdict:
McGregor has an excellent track record not only in the English Championship, but also in the Premier League and the SPL. He is still the regular number one at Hull and his age should not be a barrier to whom being a key man at Rangers over the next two seasons. Some will question the wisdom of cashing in on one of the club’s most consistent performers during the last few years, but Foderingham’s standards have slipped a bit this season, and there has been a sense for some time that he is hankering after a move back down south. His sale will also raise some much-needed funds, and McGregor is a marginally superior operator, in any case.
