Rangers goalkeeper Jak Alnwick has agreed to join Scunthorpe United on loan according to The Scottish Sun.

He will become ex-Ibrox boss Stuart McCall’s first signing at Glanford Park after becoming manager of the League One outfit this week.

The paper say the move could go through over the next 24 hours.

Alnwick has found himself third-choice at Rangers since Allan McGregor’s return to the club and despite being given a chance by Steven Gerrard in pre-season is now surplus to requirements behind Wes Foderingham.

The 25-year-old arrived in Glasgow from Port Vale in January 2017 for a reported fee of £250,000, one of Mark Warburton’s last signings at the club. Since then he’s made just 11 appearances.

He’s had a number of impressive showings between the sticks and had provided real depth to the goalkeeping position but a move out on loan will do him good.

With his contract not running out until 2020, who knows what the goalkeeping landscape will look like at Ibrox in a year’s time? He could well be called upon again.

What are your thoughts on Jak Alnwick exiting the club? Should it be Wes Foderingham moving on instead? Have your say in the comments below…

  • Looks good business alround playing time for player . Also.gets scunthorpe an experienced keeper that they need.

  • I would have sent foderingham on loan instead aldwick he is older and most fans do not rate him as a goalkeeper with enough class to play for rangers aldwick is younger and will be a very good goalkeeper in the future
