Wes Foderingham joined Rangers in the summer transfer window.

Wes Foderingham has explained to The Glasgow Evening Times why it is hard to be a Rangers goalkeeper.

Foderingham joined Scottish Championship outfit Rangers in the summer transfer window after leaving Swindon Town.

The 24-year-old has established himself as the first-choice goalkeeper at the Gers, who are flying high in the league and are on course to gaining promotion to the Scottish Premiership.

Rangers have scored as many as 31 goals in nine Championship games and have conceded only five.

While many will suggest that Foderingham has not had to do much between the posts for Rangers, the former England Under-19 international has explained why his job is not easy.

“It is difficult being a Rangers goalkeeper,” the former Crystal Palace prospect told The Glasgow Evening Times. “You need to stay concentrated for 90 minutes.

“You might only have one save to make, but you have to make it. That has been the case in a couple of games and fortunately I have been able to do it. Hopefully I can continue in the same fashion.”

Rangers play attacking football under manager Mark Warburton, and indeed Foderingham often has to just stand between the posts and watch the game.

However, the 24-year-old has to maintain his concentration throughout the 90 minutes and has to be ready for an opposition attack.
