After reports linking Rangers with a move for Hull City goalkeeper Allan McGregor this week, the long-term future of current Ibrox shot-stopper Wes Foderingham is now in doubt.
If the Light Blues do sign McGregor up for a summer return to Glasgow then it’s unlikely to be so he can play second fiddle to Foderingham and likewise the current Rangers number one is unlikely to be happy sitting on the bench.
The 27-year-old has strengths and weaknesses to his game but overall has been a hit at Ibrox and become a favourite with supporters who recognise his ability to pull off special saves and win his team points across the course of a season.
The prospect of him leaving isn’t going down too well with fans, even those who have a fondness for Allan McGregor and would be eager to see him return to Ibrox.
Many believe Foderingham has plenty more to offer Rangers and took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
@wes_foderingham I hope the stories of you leaving us at Rangers are just unsubstantiated rumours Wes. I for one don’t want to see you leave. I’d miss you giving me a👏🏻when you’re in front of me in Broomloan end 🙏🏻❤️⚽️💙

Really hope the rumours of a @wes_foderingham exit aren’t true….. best keeper we’ve had for years….

I'm not against McGregor signing because I think he's a bad player or past it I think if he was to come we would get a good few years with him I just think Foderingham can be a solid option for many more years and he is still growing

One of the last positions we need filled is keeper. Problems everywhere else and bosman or not mcgregors wages could be spent on players in positions we actually need it for. Foderingham kept us in games season after season with an ever changing shite defence

The thing is about McGregor and, god as much as I love him, I’m just a bit concerned about his age. Will he be the same? Or even good enough? I don’t want to lose out on Foderingham if he turns out to be poor.

Not gonna a lie but I feel sorry for @wes_foderingham and if the rumours of Allan McGregor are true I hope Wes stays so big shagger can help him develop both on and off the pitch 👀😂 But seriously I hope the big man stays for when we lift 55 💙🇬🇧 pic.twitter.com/4plvLiYbvk

I'm a big fan of McGregor and rate him but I don't want him to come in and replace @wes_foderingham. Hope it's all just rumours. Fod is by far the best keeper in the spfl. Stupid to replace him
