It looks like Rangers will shed multiple senior keepers from the squad this summer.

That’s because Wes Foderingham [Transfermarkt], Jak Alnwick [Transfermarkt] and Andy Firth [Transfermarkt] are all out of contract in a matter of months.

Rangers set for goalkeeper departures

Wes Foderingham

Fods has been a very good servant for the club since arriving from Swindon Town in 2015. He nailed down the no.1 shirt for several campaigns and rarely let himself down, proving a good shot-stopper and a physical presence in the area. He also helped the Gers return to the top-flight, as an ever-present in the Championship-winning season.

However, the arrival of Allan McGregor in the summer of 2018 shunted him down to the back-up slot and he’s barely featured since. He’s mustered three appearances so far this season [Soccerbase] and barring injury to Greegsy, is only likely to get a handful more before his current deal runs out.

Jak Alnwick

The 26-year-old Englishman signed for the Gers from Port Vale in 2017 and served as back-up to Foderingham for a period, making 11 appearances in all competitions [Soccerbase].

However, he’s been deemed surplus to requirements for some time and is currently on loan at Blackpool, having spent last season with Scunthorpe United. It’s highly unlikely we’ll see Jak in a Rangers shirt again.

Andy Firth

The former Liverpool Academy player was plucked from the obscurity of National League side Barrow AFC in January and given an 18-month deal. He was only ever signed as an emergency cover option, and will surely not be offered an extension given there are a plethora of young stoppers coming through the ranks.

He has made just a solitary appearance for the first team, replacing an injured Foderingham for the final seven minutes of the 2018/19 final day defeat at Kilmarnock [Transfermarkt].
