Announcement imminent: Rangers rising star has medical after agreeing terms of 19/20 Ibrox exit

Rangers rising star Aidan McAdams is putting the finishing touches today to a loan transfer to Northern Ireland outfit Portadown, Football Insider understands.

The Glasgow-born 20-year-old is heading out on loan for the second time this season after spending the first half of campaign at League Two side Edinburgh City.

Ibrox sources have told Football Insider that McAdams is completing a medical at Portadown after Rangers gave the green light for him to leave.

It is expected there will be an announcement imminently to confirm the deal has been finalised.

Rangers are happy for the Celtic academy product, signed in 2017, to go out on loan as they have an abundance of goalkeepers at their disposal.

In addition to senior duo Allan McGregor and Wes Foderingham, they have Andy Firth in the first-team squad while McAdams had been joining Kieran Wright, Robby McCrorie, Brian Kinnear for the development and age-group sides.

There is also Jak Alnwick, although he is on a season-long loan at Blackpool and will leave Rangers when his contract expires at the end of the season.

McAdams made the rare move from Parkhead to Ibrox two-and-a-half years ago for a fee rising to a potential £150,000.

He made 13 appearances in League Two for Edinburgh City this season, keeping two clean sheets and only conceding 16 goals.

Portadown are currently top of the NIFL Championship and they are hoping the imminent arrival of McAdams will boost their chances of winning promotion back to the Northern Ireland Premiership.
