Ranger goalkeeper Wes Foderingham has sent a message to Rangers fans after his blunder in the Scottish Cup against Ayr United on Sunday gifted them the opener in the Gers’ 6-1 win.
Foderingham made a mess of a back pass from David Bates allowing Alan Forrest to poke the ball home and give the Honest Men a shock lead against Graeme Murty’s side.
Alfredo Morelos drew the Gers level before half-time before second-half goals from Jason Cummings, Morelos, Jamie Murphy and a Josh Windass double booked the Light Blues’ place in the quarter-final.
Foderingham joked his mistake wasn’t costly unless fans had a 6-0 bet on as he revealed his delight at being through to the next round.
“Great to be through to the next round of the Scottish Cup. Unfortunately for us goalkeepers a bad error usually ends up in the net. Luckily mine wasn’t costly in the end unless you had 6-0 on your accy. On to the next one,” Foderingham said on his personal Twitter account.

The Gers will face Championship side Falkirk in the quarter-finals at Ibrox next month as they look to win the club’s first major trophy since 2011 when Walter Smith’s side lifted the Scottish Premiership.
Rangers haven’t won the Scottish Cup since a 1-0 win over the Bairns in the 2009 final at Hampden thanks to Nacho Novo’s strike.
Foderingham has been a key player for the Gers since arriving from Swindon in 2015, making 122 appearances, and helping the Gers to Scottish Championship and Scottish Challenge Cup success.
The 27-year-old is under contract at Ibrox until the summer of 2020 after signing a new deal earlier this season.
