Possession-based football is key for Rangers, says Wes Foderingham

Rangers FC

The former Swindon man has been in excellent form this season.

Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham has outlined the aspect of Rangers’ game that has helped them to create more chances, in what has been a storming start to the season.

Speaking to the Daily Record, the former Swindon man said the Gers’ commitment to building from the back has been key to their success so far.

“We have good technical players and playing out from the back will help us create more chances and win more games,” said the 24-year old.

“Although we attack, we defend really well too – we don’t neglect that side of the game. We have defended really well so far.

“The more chances you create, the more chances you have to win. And you will create more by playing out from the back than lumping the ball up the pitch,” he added.

Possession-based football has been in evidence in the early stages of Mark Warburton’s reign, and the summer transfer window was approached with a view to bringing suited personnel on board.

Foderingham had experience at Swindon of playing out from the back, and the signings of Rob Kiernan, Danny Wilson and Dominic Ball has ensured that whoever gets the nod at the back is comfortable on the ball.

The change in playing style and the development of a clear footballing philosophy has been a treat for the Ibrox faithful, with early season displays thrilling the long-suffering fan base.

Rangers' last two performances have dipped below that high standard, however, and Warburton will be determined to gets things back on track to ensure they serve as a blip rather than a sign of things to come.
