Rangers linked to three fascinating options as race to replace stopper heats up

Rangers have been linked with three goalkeepers in recent weeks as reports hot up around the potential successor to Allan McGregor.

Whilst the legendary Rangers stopper has shown no signs of slowing yet and with a potential contract extension on the horizon [Evening Times], the club appears to be looking towards the future of the position.

In the last few weeks, there has been a spate of reports claiming Rangers have been looking at a variety of talented young keepers.

Firstly, a report claims that Rangers are looking at goalkeeper Declan Rudd [Football Insider] from high-flying Preston North End.

The 28-year-old stopper has been on fine form for the Lilywhites and the former England U21 international is reportedly on an Ibrox shortlist.

St. Mirren goalkeeper Vaclav Hladky, also 28, then revealed that “some negotiations” [Daily Record] are ongoing with Rangers with a view to a move to Ibrox.

The Czech stopper is highly rated and St. Mirren even had to fend off a £200k bid from Qarabag for the keeper in the summer.

Finally, Rangers were then linked to Sheffield Wednesday Academy product Cameron Dawson [Sheffield Star], with the 24-year-old’s contract set to expire at the end of the season.

It certainly looks like Rangers have one eye on a goalkeeper heading into next season, but what does that also say about the future of Wes Foderingham?

The loyal backup stopper’s contract expires in the summer and he has been linked with a move to DC United [Daily Mail].
