Rangers goalkeeper Ross McCrorie raves about Wes Foderingham

Rangers keeper Wes Foderingham has been earmarked for a future England role.

Speaking to the Scotsman, Rangers youngster Ross McCrorie has expressed his belief that Wes Foderingham could play for England in the future, after his impressive start to life at Rangers.

McCrorie said: “I train with Wes and he’s a very good, technical keeper. Training with him and watching what he does helps me a lot. I agree with the manager that he could play for England. This has been a big move for him, away from his family, and he’s done really well. We’ve only had glimpses of how good he can be.”

Foderingham made the switch to Ibrox over the summer, and has established himself as Mark Warburton’s first choice goalkeeper in his Rangers team.

The Gers have lost just one league game this season with Foderingham between the posts, and in 13 games the keeper has conceded just eight goals.

There were some questionable moments early in his career at Ibrox, but he has since levelled his performances out, and McCrorie believes that the 24-year-old certainly has the talented to be playing for England.

This is a bold claim, especially as England can call upon Joe Hart in goal, and the Manchester City stopper is one of the best in world football.

Behind Hart, Roy Hodgson can name Jack Butland and Tom Heaton - both proven Premier League players - whilst Heaton would be dropped for Fraser Forster, another Premier League star, if he was not injured.

Foderingham may have the talent to play for England in the future, but the chances of him being called up will only be there if Rangers are playing in the Scottish Premiership soon.

It appears as if the Gers will win promotion back to the top flight this term, and if he can replicate his form from this season in the Premiership next year, Hodgson may have no choice but to take a closer look at the goalkeeper.
