According to the reports from the Star, Rangers are monitoring the situation of Sheffield Wednesday’s goalkeeper Cameron Dawson. Celtic are also said to be tracking the goalkeeper along with English clubs like Derby County and Blackburn Rovers.

The Bears had been linked with Dawson around a month back as well. Dawson’s contract is set to expire in the summer, and he could soon become a free agent. However the 24-year-old has impressed recently with some of his performances, and he went on to indicate that he is in a dialogue with the club over a new contract.

Dawson gives a contract update

Moreover, Dawson was born in Sheffield, and he has come up from the club’s academy. The custodian recently indicated that he would love to continue his stint with the Owls. The shot-stopper said, ‘’ We are in dialogue with the club about it (contract) now. I want a quick resolution as much as anyone does. I like things done. I don’t like it when things drag on. Hopefully, we will get things done, and we can quickly move forward. I love this place. It means an awful lot to me. If there is a chance to stay here, then excellent.”

As things stand, we believe that Dawson and Sheffield Wednesday might agree on a contract by the end of the season, and Rangers and others could miss out on him.

Why might Rangers need a goalkeeper?

Rangers arguably have the best goalkeeper in the league in the form of Allan McGregor. The veteran custodian recently extended his stay for another year with Rangers after his contract was set to expire in the summer. As long as McGregor is at the club, it is unlikely that anyone would come close to dislodging him from the first-team spot.

However, Rangers might need a backup goalkeeper as Wes Fodringham’s contract is set to expire in the summer and there are no indications that he would go on to stay at Ibrox beyond this campaign. One couldn’t blame him as Foderingham can play first-team football for quite a few clubs and it is McGregor’s brilliance and experience that has kept him out of the team.

Will Gerrard get his man?

Dawson might love to extend his stay his with Sheffield Wednesday. Still, the lure of playing for a big club like Rangers and participating in European competition might tilt the balance in the Scottish giants’ favour. It remains to be seen what would transpire in the future with Dawson. We believe that given his form, Sheffield Wednesday would soon try to get him on a new contract.
