Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham has all but confirmed that he will be leaving Ibrox when his contract expires at the end of the season.
The 29-year-old joined from Swindon Town in July 2015 when the Bears were still in the Scottish Championship but he has spent the last eighteen months as backup keeper following the arrival of veteran Allan McGregor.
Foderingham has been an able reserve for McGregor but the Englishman admits he is tired of sitting on the bench and will look to move on as he seeks out more first-team football:
“I’ve had informal talks with the club but, ultimately, I want to play. So we’ll get this window out of the way and see where we are. It looks like I’ll be here until the end of the season at least and we’ll take it from there. The club knows my position and we’ll have another discussion. But I want to play, so read into that what you will.”
The shot-stopper has made over 100 appearances in all competitions for the Gers during his stay at the club, but he looks poised to end his association with the Scottish club after five years.
Foderingham has only played five games this season, with the latest coming against Stranraer in the Scottish Cup on Friday night, but Gerrard’s decision to consistently pick McGregor ahead of him means he feels he has no choice but to move on.
