WES FODERINGHAM is on the verge of quitting Rangers at the end of the season.

The frustrated back-up keeper stepped in for the banned Allan McGregor in the goalless draw against St Johnstone at Ibrox at the weekend.

But Foderingham realises first team opportunities are limited with Scotland international shotstopper established as the No.1 in Steven Gerrard’s line-up.

The Englishman said: “I won’t put a timescale on it. I’ll look at all the options that are available to me and make decisions based on that.

“We will see where we are at the end  of the season.”

Foderingham made only his second  Premiership appearance of the season against the Perth outfit and has already told his gaffer he needs more game-time.

DOWN AND OUT? Wes Foderingham saves at the feet of Celtic’s Callum McGregor in last season’s Scottish Cup semi-final.

The 28-year-old said: “We have had discussions and he knows I want to play. But I also know Allan is playing really well, so it’s a difficult situation I’m in.

“I’m here till the end of the season, so we will review it then.”

Foderingham will be in place when Gers face Kilmarnock in the Scottish Cup replay in Govan on Wednesday night and is likely to face Hamilton Accies at the weekend. However, McGregor will be clear to return against Dundee at the end of the month.

The Ibrox understudy added: “It’s very difficult to come back in. But I’m always going to back the team. I’m always going to back Allan.

“Listen, I see myself as a No1 keeper, so sitting on the sidelines every week is not ideal, but I’m a professional.

“I train hard. I work hard and when I get an opportunity to play, I try to do myself justice.

“Fortunately enough for me, in the games I’ve played, I think I’ve fared well.”
