Rangers star opens up on biggest adjustment since Ibrox move, has message for fans

Rangers Gates

Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham joined the Ibrox side in the summer of 2015.

Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham has told the club’s official website that the biggest adjustment he had to make at the club was getting used to the fans.

Foderingham joined Scottish giants Rangers in the summer of 2015 after leaving Swindon Town, now in League One in England.

The 25-year-old former Fulham and Crystal Palace prospect has established himself as a key player for the Gers this season.

The former England Under-19 international goalkeeper has opened up on the adjustment he had to make at Rangers following his move in the summer of 2015. Foderingham has also spoken highly of the Glasgow club's fans.

“I’d say that the biggest adjustment coming up here from Swindon has been getting used to the crowds,” Foderingham told Rangers’ official website. “Obviously at Swindon we were averaging six or seven thousand at home games and up here we are up there with forty-eight to fifty thousand every week.

“These are the kinds of games that you want to play in, in front of the big crowds and for a big club and I’m doing that now so I’m very pleased.

“I quite enjoy being so close to the fans, the home fans are very supportive and when you are in opposite end next to the away fans it’s part and parcel of being a goalkeeper and I enjoy the stick and the banter that I get occasionally from the away supporters.”

Rangers have already won the Scottish Championship title and the Scottish Challenge Cup this season, and they could end up clinching the Scottish Cup.

Mark Warburton’s side will take on Old Firm rivals Celtic in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup at Hampden Park in Glasgow this afternoon.

The Gers are not favourites for the match, but they should not be taken lightly as they do have the quality to get the better of Ronny Deila’s side.
