Former Rangers keeper Liam Kelly might’ve moved on from Ibrox 18 months ago but his career has been a rollercoaster ever since.

Leaving the southside of Glasgow to join the ranks at Livingston, Kelly majorly impressed in the two seasons he turned out for the Lions (one on loan).

Now turning out for Queens Park Rangers and impressing in the Championship under Mark Warburton at the tender age of 23, could we ever see the keeper back at Ibrox?

The keeper made the press this weekend after turning away a Patrick Bamford penalty in the Rs 1-0 win over promotion-chasing Leeds United.

It’s the latest in a string of impressive performances by the young stopper and clear vindication for moving on from Ibrox.

With Allan McGregor returning and a more mature Wes Foderingham in front of him, chances were always going to be limited for Kelly.

Could he be the long-term successor to Allan McGregor’s goalkeeping throne?
