Wes Foderingham: This is what Rangers have done about critics
Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham believes the Ibrox side have answered their critics in recent after grinding out wins over Aberdeen and Ross County to take second place in the Scottish Premiership.
The 26-year-old shot-stopper thinks that the Ibrox side’s stars have shown their ability to pick up vital wins despite being written off by many after Pedro Caixinha’s sacking in October.
The Gers came back from a goal down against County to seal three points at Ibrox on Saturday – seven days after holding out with 10 men to see out a 2-1 win over the Dons at Pittodrie and leapfrog Derek McInnes’ side in the table.
Former Swindon ‘keeper Foderingham insists the Light Blues are all on the same page as they look to lift the club’s first major trophy since 2011.
“When people write us off we seem to bounce right back and get the results we need,” Foderingham said, as quoted by the club’s official website.
“I think it has been a criticism of us in the past that sometimes when things are going against us we don’t pick up points.

“In the last few weeks we have shown we can do that.
“Football brings people together and we are all professionals and we all want the same thing and are pulling in the same direction and I think the fans can see that.”
The Gers travel to Easter Road to take on Neil Lennon’s Hibs on Wednesday night and will need to keep their recent run of wins going if they are to continue making ground up on leaders Celtic.
Since Caixinha’s sacking, the Gers have closed the gap to Brendan Rodgers’ side to five points – Celtic also have a game in hand – after looking at potentially falling 12 points behind then-second place Aberdeen as recently as a fortnight ago.
Foderingham will almost certainly start in goal for Graeme Murty’s side at Easter Road with regular back-up Jak Alnwick struggling with an injury picked up in training.
