Wes Foderingham remaining positive as Rangers slip up by insisting winning title at Ibrox will be special

Rangers FC Stands

The Light Blues would have secured promotion had they won against Raith on Saturday.

Wes Foderingham is clearly choosing to remain positive after Rangers blew the opportunity to clinch the Scottish Championship title on Saturday by insisting that confirming their promotion at Ibrox on Tuesday will be special, the Daily Record reports.

Had the Gers beaten Raith, their return to the Scottish Premiership would have been secured as St Mirren held Hibernian to a draw. However, a 3-3 draw - which also saw the goalkeeper make a save from a late penalty - means that the Light Blues will have to wait until they face Dumbarton on Tuesday to finish the job.

And while Foderingham admitted that he was disappointed that the side will now have to wait an extra couple of days, he insisted that Tuesday's game would be an excellent time to seal the title.

"It was a roller coaster of emotions. To throw it away at the end is really
 disappointing," he told the Record.

"I thought I'd won it for us with the penalty save. But you can't switch off until the final whistle and Raith caused us problems all day with balls into the box.

"We can clinch it on 
Tuesday now. To do it in front of the home fans will be special so we have to forget about Raith."

While Mark Warburton would have wanted the league wrapped up as quickly as possible - given that it would have given them longer to concentrate on the Challenge Cup final and Scottish Cup semi-final that are both ahead later this month, and that it would also send a message to the sides in the Scottish Premiership about their strength - winning the crown at Ibrox would arguably be a good way to pretty much bring the curtain down on their time in the wilderness. 

The club's fans have travelled in numbers to every outpost in the Scottish game, so it would perhaps only be right that as many of them as possible are present for the moment that the journey is completed.
