Rangers: top 30 players - Number 20

Rangers FC Stands

Rangers have had some excellent goalkeepers on their books throughout their history, but none as talented as German stopper Stefan Klos.

 

It goes without saying that Andy Goram will be the highest-ranked Rangers goalkeeper in this list, but Stefan Klos - who spent eight years at Ibrox between 1999 and 2007 - also deserves to be recognised.

 

It came as a surprise when Rangers were able to tempt Klos to depart Borussia Dortmund, but the German stopper proved the perfect fit at a successful club who were looking to freshen up their ranks to maintain their general superiority over Celtic. In his first 18 months in Glasgow, Klos helped Rangers to two league titles, but Martin O'Neill's arrival at their Old Firm rivals began some of the most competitive years in both club's history.

 

In the years that followed, Celtic would win Scottish Premiership crowns by wide margins and Rangers were triumphant by slender margins. Klos couldn't influence the years where Celtic were rampant in attack, but he made vital saves and contributions when Rangers claimed the title on goal difference in 2002-03 and by one point in 2004-05.

 

Injury would eventually result in Klos falling down the pecking order, but he ended his time at Rangers with 299 appearances to his name. As well as the four league titles, he also won five domestic cup competitions.
