Former Rangers keeper Jak Alnwick is being lined up for a reunion with Jim Goodwin at Aberdeen, according to a report, with the St Mirren star a target for the Pittodrie side.

Alnwick, who was taken to St Mirren by Goodwin after leaving Rangers, is out of contract in the summer, and the Daily Record claim Goodwin wants to sign him on a pre-contract.

The former Newcastle keeper has been a key figure in Paisley under Goodwin and it is no surprise to see the Irishman keen to take him to the Granite City.

St Mirren want to keep Alnwick at the club beyond the end of the season but the report claims that he is keeping his options open.

While the move to St Mirren from Rangers won’t have meant much upheaval for Alnwick off the pitch, a switch to Aberdeen would likely see him needing to relocate.

Aberdeen already have Joe Lewis and Gary Woods under contract for next season and the arrival of Alnwick would likely push both down the pecking order at Pittodrie.

The 28-year-old only managed 11 appearances for Rangers during his time at Ibrox, playing understudy to the likes of Wes Foderingham and Allan McGregor before leaving Ibrox when his contract ended in the summer of 2020.

Since moving to St Mirren, Alnwick has turned out 77 times for the Buddies, recording 24 clean sheets, and helping them to the brink of a place in Europe next season.

Meanwhile, Rangers star Joe Aribo could face a ban threat ahead of the second leg tie against Red Star Belgrade.
