Sheffield United fans have heaped praise on former Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham for an incredible save he made in a Carabao Cup fixture against Southampton on Tuesday.
Foderingham was released by the Gers in the summer of 2020 following five years at Ibrox and was soon snapped up by the Blades.
He was the backup keeper to Aaron Ramsdale last season and although the former England youth international has since joined Arsenal, Fods is still the no.2 at Bramall Lane as Robin Olsen was signed on loan during the closing stages of the transfer window.
The former Ger does receive playing time in cup competitions, though, and turned out against Premier League opposition on Tuesday night.
With the two teams locked at 2-2 and extra time approaching, he was called into action by Scotland international Che Adams.
Adams looked to have scored after steering a finish towards the bottom right corner following a cross from the left but Fods stuck out his left arm and somehow clawed the shot away before it crossed the line, to the disbelief of the Saints fans behind the goal.
United would go on to be knocked out of the competition on penalties but their fans were quick to praise the keeper on social media for his jaw-dropping stop.
Here’s a selection of reactions from Twitter:

Special praise to our goalkeeper though. Wes Foderingham produced possibly the best save in a United shirt since Dean’s triple save against Norwich. That aside I thought he did a stellar job between the sticks #sufc #twitterblades

I W as bang in line with it from the South Stand. It went behind Wes and he somehow clawed it away. Probably one of the finest saves I’ve ever seen 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

A current teammate of Foderingham’s who was linked with Rangers in the summer, scored in the same match.
