All change at Ibrox as huge star set to leave; reports


The flurry of Rangers’ incessant transfer activity over the past 48 hours has continued with further information that current number one Wes Foderingham is set to leave Ibrox this summer.

The ‘currently injured’ stopper, who mysteriously picked up his knock prior to the Hearts win, has never really been linked with too many teams that we know of, and sees his chances in the first team taking the first huge hit they’ve suffered with the pending capture of ex-Rangers star Allan McGregor, and the ex-Swindon man has reportedly decided to cut his losses and move on.

Foderingham is under contract till 2020, a deal which was announced to much fanfare last autumn, but the only guarantee of such an extension is it means Rangers can secure a good transfer fee for him. If these reports are indeed accurate.

In truth, Rangers are not signing a Scotland goalkeeper to sit as deputy to Foderingham, and there had been claims last season that Wes was looking to return to England soon regardless – does beg the question of why he signed a new deal if true.

Nevertheless, with McGregor looking like becoming the new number one, Foderingham clearly isn’t interested in fighting for his place, and could well have already played his last match for Rangers.


  1. Wes is being replaced with a far superior keeper, lets hope MA can continue with this model and ensure anyone else brought in is a vast improvement to the position they are signed for, wont be difficult in some cases.

  2. No issue with Foderingham leaving. Good shot stopper at times & decent distribution at times but not good positionaly & poor on crosses. Hope AM returning is not a backward step though.

  3. Good buissness. Should get a decent fee for fod. Alan has a good 4 years which will give the 2 young lads time to get ready to take over. Hopefully they will get some cup game time… def a smart move for the money now and for the future

  4. Should get around 1m for him with 3 teams intrested in him, possibly more if all 3 want him enough!!

  5. Thank God…About Time
    Not Good Enough for Rangers
    With AM coming in…Wont be Missed

    Bye Bye Wes 👏

  6. Goodbye Wes, you are pish and glad to see the back of you and l will welcome El Shagger back with open arms

  7. It is going be all change as we try and get ahead of them next season,it is going be good to see if they still buy younger players and sell them on,i hope they do do that or will that start them buying in older players and only one or two younger players its going be a great season for us next one lets enjoy what comes our way.

  8. Sad to see Wes go he has been good for us. However he is not as good as AM and neither of them would like to sit on the bench. Best for all.

  9. Huge star? Ahh it’s Foderingham you meant…Nowt personal but I just don’t rate him as a Rangers standard GK. Hope he gets his dream team down south and best of luck with his England hopes..

  10. My issue with Fods was that, good shot stopper and all, he was, well, too short to reach those high shots aimed at the top corners of the goal, and Celtic's players knew he'd be challenged on those. They'd done their homework, and Gods just couldn't reach those shots..
