Rangers have secured the signing of Barrow goalkeeper Andy Firth on an 18 month deal for an undisclosed fee, subject to international clearance.
The Ibrox side had been looking at options in the goalkeeping position. New Zealand international Stefan Marinovic was on trial earlier this month, but it looks like Firth is the club’s preferred option.
But what does this move mean for Wes Foderingham?
Foderingham was first choice at Ibrox before McGregor took the gloves in the summer. Since then the Yorkshireman’s chances have been limited and at 28, he needs to be playing matches.
Whether this will be on loan or as a full transfer remains to be seen. That is if Rangers don’t see Firth as a third-choice keeper. That’s after Robby McCrorie went out on loan to Greenock Morton today.
Andy Firth, 22, started his career at Liverpool and is very familiar with the Anfield connection at Ibrox. He has previously worked with Steven Gerrard and his team as part of the Liverpool youth set-up.
Firth only has National League experience in England it will be interesting to see how he takes the step up.
