Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham has held his hands up and confessed to his mistake against Ayr United in the Scottish Cup – and Gers fans want the shot-stopper to forget about it.

The ex-Swindon keeper gifted Ayr the opener when he made a mess of a back pass from David Bates to allow Alan Forrest to score before the Light Blues blasted six past the Honest Men.

Doubles from Alfredo Morelos and Josh Windass in addition to strikes by Jason Cummings and Jamie Murphy booked the Gers’ place in the quarter-finals.

Foderingham joked it ultimately wasn’t costly unless fans had bet on a 6-0 win on his personal Twitter account as fans brushed off the blunder – with one fan saying “it happens.”

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

Foderingham has been the regular number one since arriving at Ibrox from Swindon in 2015 and has made 122 appearances for the Light Blues.

The 27-year-old senior star has lifted the Scottish Championship and Scottish Challenge Cup during his time in Scotland but is yet to get his hands on a major trophy.

The Gers will face Championship side Falkirk in the last-eight as they look to win the Scottish Cup for the first time since seeing off the Bairns in the 2009 final thanks to Nacho Novo’s second-half strike.
