Wes Foderingham is expected to head back south of the border after Rangers announced his departure, Football Insider has learned.

The Glasgow giants released a statement yesterday revealing Foderingham is one of six senior players who will leave when his contract expires in the coming weeks.

A source with knowledge of Foderingham’s situation has told Football Insider he is keen on returning to his native England to reignite his career.

The 29-year-old had been willing to let his Ibrox contract expire as he felt he would have more options as a free agent going into the summer.

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought great uncertainty across the game, with EFL clubs in the Championship, League One and League Two facing unprecedented financial chaos.

But Foderingham should not be short of offers when the summer transfer window eventually opens.

He has made 143 appearances for Rangers since joining in 2015 from Swindon Town.

The Englishman had been the undisputed number one in his first three seasons before the 2018 signing of Allan McGregor pushed him down the pecking order.


Foderingham has played five times in the 2019-20 season but only two of those appearances came after August.

McGregor signed a one-year extension to his Rangers contract last December and will remain at the club until 2021.
