The nature of the game dictates that when players arrive, others must depart, and having secured the services of Allan McGregor on a free transfer from Hull City, Wes Foderingham’s future as a Rangers player is in serious doubt. Recent reports have linked the Englishman with a move away from Ibrox, and a slight majority of the Gers supporters would be content with his departure.
As the Football Insider reported earlier in the week, Steven Gerrard is reportedly willing to allow the 27-year-old goalkeeper to depart Ibrox following the arrival of McGregor. Without question, Foderingham has been a commendable figure for the Gers, and he played a pivotal role in their revival as the club looked to reaffirm its status as a member of the top-flight of Scottish football.
Yet, despite amassing over 100 appearances for the club, it seems that the former Swindon Town goalkeeper is unfavoured by Steven Gerrard, which doesn’t bode well for his immediate future. Without question, goalkeepers are perhaps more reliant on their manager’s trust than any other position. Thus, it would be illogical for the Gers to keep Foderingham if he doesn’t have the full-backing of Steven Gerrard.
For the sake of his future career prospects, and progression as a goalkeeper, Wes Foderingham should leave Ibrox this summer in pursuit of consistent first-team football. Seemingly, most Rangers supporters are in agreement, with 60% of our respondents saying that the club should sell the English goalkeeper.
