Mark Warburton on the Rangers player he 'never doubted'

Rangers FC Stands

The Gers boss has lauded in-form goalkeeper Wes Foderingham.

Mark Warburton has revealed his satisfaction with the progress of Wes Foderingham and insists he never had any doubts about his quality.

The former Swindon Town keeper has been a commanding presence for the Gers, and his ability to play out from the back has been crucial in implementing the playstyle Warburton wants to see.

Foderingham has been an ever-present and the consistency of his performances have led some to suggest an England call-up may not be too distant a prospect.

“People doubted Wes, but I have never had a doubt about Wes ever,” said Warburton on rangers.co.uk.

"We know his quality, he came to the club and we placed big demands on him in terms of how we want to play, and he adapted to it and has got better and better, and he showed on Sunday what he can be.

“That was as busy as he has been all season – but he made some outstanding saves, had good distribution and was a real dominant force in the area, so I’m delighted for him.”

Rangers have generally been in control of games this season but Foderingham’s alertness has been vital in preventing counter attacks from proving costly, and his form will be key to maintaining the Gers’ impressive defensive record.

The jury will be out on the 24-year old until next season at least, when he will begin to face more regular and sustainted threats to his goal – should Rangers reach the SPL – and only then will talk of his England prospects be taken seriously.
