Rangers outcast Jak Alnwick looks destined for an Ibrox exit in January when his five-month loan deal with Scunthorpe United comes to an end.
The former Newcastle United youngster was shipped out earlier in the season after falling down the pecking order.
Having Wes Foderingham and Robby McCrorie in reserve make a return seem even more unlikely.
Alnwick joined the Gers in 2017 but has struggled to hold down a regular place, making only 11 appearances.
During his spell at Scunthorpe, Alnwick has been a regular feature in the starting XI for Stuart McCall’s side.
Despite spending a reported £250,000 to lure Alnwick north, there appears to be little chance of a reprieve.
Alnwick has 18 months left on his contract at Ibrox but it would make sense to look at moving on.
