Rangers linked to South American international goalkeeper


Social media speculation coming out of Turkey claims Rangers have taken up an interest in Trabzonspor’s Costa Rican number one, Esteban Alvarado. The 27-year old international, with 11 caps for his country, follows an increasing number of ‘keepers linked with a switch to Ibrox such as Southend United’s Daniel Bentley, and Rangers certainly need some serious competition for current club number one, Wes Foderingham.

After the disastrous signing failure that was Maciej Gostomski, Mark Warburton will be keen to acquire a more disciplined and reliable deputy to his current first pick, ergo Alvarado’s name is slightly surprising given he was banned from his national team after failing to notify the camp when he left in 2012, but in better news he is best known for an excellent five year spell at Dutch cracks AZ Alkmaar where he made almost 140 appearances and played a small role in them winning the title.

Stay tuned, folks.


  1. Foderingham made only one mistake against Hibs so I hope he keeps his place. He kept us in games throughout the season.

    I was hoping there would be a youth keeper in our academy that would fit in as a back up.

    • I assume you mean only one mistake in that one match which is not a great return! There were many goals conceded over the season where his positioning was questionable at best and he doesn't command his area! He may come good yet but I'd be looking for an experienced and reliable keeper to push him and find out if he's good enough to keep the spot!

    • behave wes sux did you see all the goals he let in the last 5 or 6 games of the season he will be on bench but good back up Keeper,a like the sound of that goalkeeper Alvarado get him in

    • Na m8 he hasn't done anything I wouldn't expect a keeper to do. He hasn't made any saves that I have thought "u shouldn't have made that save" if you know what I mean.

  2. Are you kidding Foderingham is an accident waiting to happen should never be a Rangers goalie, Alexander was better by far

  3. I agree that Alexander was a far better keeper – such a pity we let him go. Foderingham has made some spectacular saves, but he does not command the penalty area or even (too often) the 6 yard box. But does Warburton drop his 'special ones' such as Kiernan and Foderingham?

  4. Fordringham is a decent keeper but he needs competition so a new keeper necessary. Alexander would never have suited our system as he was not good with the ball at his feet and we are trying to play from the back

  5. Get alexander back lol wait get magregar back also even better get all the shit players back from the past

  6. We don't need back up for Fodderingham, we 100% need a replacement. Nothing against the big guy – unfortunately just not good enough for us.

  7. The only disaster in reference to Maciej Gostomski, was that Warbuton never replaced Foderinham for him,,,, Gostomski is a fantastic big keeper who commands his box and is never bullied by opposition,, Foderingham is barbies Ken doll,, get him, kiernan and wilson replaced or we will lose big time next season.
