Rangers manager Mark Warburton has praised goalkeeper Wes Foderingham.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told The Scottish Sun that goalkeeper Wes Foderingham is 'outstanding' after his performance against Queen of the South.

The Gers came through a hard-fought match against Queen of the South on Sunday, as a dipping half volley from Kenny Miller won the match in the second half, with Rangers heading back to Glasgow with a narrow 1-0 victory.

The result meant Rangers extended their lead at the top of the Scottish Championship back up to eight points, after Hibernian beat Alloa 3-0 earlier on Sunday.

Miller scored the winner and midfielder Barrie McKay impressed, but the real man of the match for Rangers was goalkeeper Wes Foderingham.

The summer signing from Swindon Town impressed with a number of saves, keeping Rangers in front and making sure his side left with another clean sheet.

He's had his shaky moments this season, but Foderingham is becoming a star with Rangers, and another fine performance on Sunday underlined that.

Now, Rangers boss Mark Warburton has told The Scottish Sun that he thinks Foderingham is 'outstanding', and at just 24, he has room to get even better during his time at Ibrox.

"He’s an outstanding player," said Warburton. "He’s still young but his distribution is great and he is good with the ball at his feet. His reaction saves are first class. You might say he’s not the tallest at 6ft 1in but he dominates his box.

"All credit to him, he made two or three great saves but he has been outstanding all season. At 24 he’s also a baby in terms of being a keeper," he added.

What do you think about Foderingham's performances this season?
