Rangers Move For 28 Year Old Hinges On This 1 Thing: What Would Be The Ideal Scenario For Gerrard?

According to the latest reports from the Scottish Sun, Rangers’ hopes of signing St. Mirren’s goalkeeper Václav Hladký will depend on the future of Wes Foderingham. Rangers’ team management is set to decide in the coming weeks whether Foderingham would be handed a new deal after his current contract expires in the summer.

If Foderingham doesn’t commit to a new deal, then Rangers will look to bring Hladky on a pre-contract in January. It is believed that Hladky would be happy to stay in Scotland and compete with Allan McGregor for the first-team spot. Foderingham was the first choice goalkeeper for Rangers, but ever since the arrival of McGregor, he has hardly featured for the Bears.

Goodwin on Hladky’s future

Mirren boss Jim Goodwin has admitted that he is already preparing for life without Hladky. Goodwin said, ”Knowing Vaclav was 99 per cent likely to leave, we have to make sure that we have a replacement coming in. It would be stupid not to.”

He also praised the goalkeeper by saying, ”He’s got all the attributes.  His distribution is excellent; his shot-stopping is brilliant, his decision-making, his temperament and mentality. He’s really got the lot.”

Recently the Czech goalkeeper also went on to admit that negotiations (Daily Record) with Rangers seem to be on. However, he also revealed his aspirations to play in England. The 28-year-old indicated that he would prefer a move to the English Championship as that would bring him closer to realising his dream of playing in the Premier League.

At Rangers, he will likely play second fiddle to McGregor who has been outstanding since he joined Rangers for his second stint. The Scotsman’s current deal also expires in 2020, but it is widely expected that Rangers will soon hand him a new contract because of his terrific form in goal.

What would be the ideal scenario for Gerrard?

Hladky has been in terrific form for St. Mirren too, and he played a significant role to get them to the top flight this season. Even now, the 28-year-old can be termed as one of the best goalkeepers in the division. Interest from down south could turn the player’s head though, and Rangers might end up losing out on him.

It will be ideal for Rangers if Foderingham decides to extend his stay. But given his abilities, he could go on to start regularly for quite a few clubs in world football. There have been reported interests from the MLS club DC United for Foderingham.
