Peter McCloy: Rangers need to sign a goalkeeper

Glasgow Rangers need to sign a new goalkeeper to compete with Cammy Bell, says Gers legend Peter McCloy.

Peter McCloy has told The Scottish Sun that Rangers need to sign a new goalkeeper.

Scotland international Cammy Bell is the Gers’ first-choice custodian at the moment, and Rangers legend McCloy believes that new manager Mark Warburton should sign someone to compete with him for the number one spot.

“Rangers must go out and get another keeper to give Bell a challenge for the No1 spot — not just a back-up,” the former goalkeeper told The Scottish Sun.

“They have released the other two keepers Steve Simonsen and Lee Robinson, and they must get another one in soon because you need a challenge,” added McCloy.

“It will definitely help Cammy if he is pushed by another keeper to get back to where he wants to be.”

Cammy Bell mistake

Bell was an important player for Rangers in the 2014-15 campaign, but he also made a major mistake for Motherwell’s opening goal of the Scottish Premiership playoff final second leg at Fir Park.

It occurred in the 52nd minute, and thereafter Ian Baraclough’s side scored twice to win the game 3-0.

Having won the first leg 3-1 at Ibrox in Glasgow last week, Motherwell clinched the Premiership playoff final 6-1 on aggregate.

Bell joined Rangers on a free transfer in the summer of 2013 after his contract with Kilmarnock ran out.

The goalkeeper signed a four-year deal with the Glasgow giants, as reported by BBC Sport at the time.
