Rangers have confirmed the imminent departures of six players upon the expiration of their current contracts.

Three of the players – Wes Foderingham, Andy Halliday and Jon Flanagan – were part of the first-team squad across the season but struggled for game time.

The other three named individuals – Jordan Rossiter, Jak Alnwick and Jason Holt – have been elsewhere on loan deals.

Rossiter and Alnwick had been playing in the EFL with Fleetwood Town and Blackpool respectively before serious injuries curtailed their season even before the onset of the global health crisis. Meanwhile, Holt was turning out for St Johnstone until the suspension of the Scottish Premiership campaign.

Speaking specifically about the first team players leaving the club, Ross Wilson said, as quoted by Rangers.co.uk: “Andy, Wes and Jon have applied themselves excellently during my time here and I wish them nothing but the best in their next chapter. I am sure the fans will join me in thanking them for their contributions to Rangers.”

Foderingham was one of the club’s longest-serving players, having been signed by Mark Warburton back in 2015. He wore the no.1 shirt for several seasons before the return of Allan McGregor pushed him down the pecking order.

Lifelong bluenose Halliday also signed for the Gers in 2015 and made over 150 appearances either side of a loan stint with Gabala, playing both in midfield and at full-back.

Jon Flanagan signed on a free transfer in 2018 and made 39 appearances across two seasons, mainly at left-back.
