Former Rangers Academy goalkeeper Aidan McAdams has signed for Championship club Greenock Morton [].

The 21-year-old was one of five youth players released by the Gers back in May, alongside Aidan Wilson, John Balde, Kieran McKechnie and Julian Anderson.

McAdams has joined the Ton on a season-long deal ahead of the new Championship campaign, which is due to kick off on 17 October.

McAdams joined the Gers from Celtic in 2017 and although he didn’t manage to break into the first team, he did build up experience in senior football via loan spells at Annan Athletic, Edinburgh City and Northern Irish club, Portadown.

Now, after several months of uncertainty as a free agent, he’s found a new home.

McAdams’ signing was announced by Morton at the same time as the loan capture of St Johnstone defender, Wallace Duffy, and manager, David Hopkin, is delighted to have both players on board.

“We’ve been having a close look at Aidan over the past couple of weeks during our sessions at Parklea and believe he can add value to the squad whilst Wallace is a player we’ve had an eye on for a while,” he told

“Both boys come straight into contention for First-Team places as we look ahead to the coming season.”

McAdams is the second of those young prospects released by Rangers to find a new club in recent days after Aidan Wilson completed an exciting move to NIFL Premiership club, Crusaders.

The young goalkeeper may not have much chance of picking up silverware or experiencing European football at Morton, but landing a contract at a Championship club is a good achievement for a youngster whose last SPFL appearance came in League Two.
