Rangers are on the brink of making their latest January signing, with The Sun reporting that 22-year-old goalkeeper Andy Firth will be making the switch to Ibrox.
The club are currently well-stocked with talented goalkeepers but manager Steven Gerrard is using his connections again to bring in a prospect that will hopefully compete for first-team places in future.
Firth was at Liverpool when Gerrard was both a player and youth coach, so the knowledge of the player is there. He left the Reds just last summer, moving to Barrow.
The Sun report that the player, currently plying his trade in the English National League, will complete a medical this week before signing up with the Gers.
Allan McGregor is almost undroppable right now and with players like Wes Foderingham waiting in back-up, competition is as fierce between the sticks as any other position in the Rangers team.
Gerrard must consider the relatively unknown player a talent though and as a bargain signing it is relatively risk free, so gets a thumbs up from me.
