Rangers goalkeeper Cammy Bell not worried about Maciej Gostomski competition

Rangers signed Maciej Gostomski in the January transfer window.

Rangers goalkeeper Cammy Bell has suggested to The Daily Record that he is not worried about competition from Maciej Gostomski.

The Gers signed Gostomski on a free transfer in the January transfer window on a six-month contract.

The 27-year-old Polish goalkeeper was recruited in order to make the Rangers squad stronger, and enhance the Glasgow giants’ chances of winning the Scottish Championship title this season.

With Wes Foderingham having established himself as the first-choice goalkeeper at Rangers, Gostomski and Bell are the back-ups.

Bell, who has been on the books of Rangers since 2013, has suggested that he is not worried about Gostomski getting ahead of him in the pecking order.

The 29-year-old has set his eyes on reclaiming the number one spot from Foderingham and told The Daily Record: I’m desperate to play another game now. The manager made the decision to bring Maciej in but in my mind I’ve always been after Wes’s jersey, no one else’s.

“Wes has been great and I know it’ll be tough. But if I can keep him on his toes, work hard and ensure he helps the team to keep winning – that’s the main thing.

“Since I got back fit, my main aim is to try to get my shirt back. There was talk of going on loan but I want to be Rangers’ No.1 and am not looking to go anywhere else.”

The message from Bell to Gostomski is clear - the Scotsman does not consider the former Lech Poznan goalkeeper his competitor.

It will not be easy for Bell to reclaim his place in the Rangers starting lineup, though, as Foderingham has played well for Mark Warburton’s side since joining in the summer of 2015.
