Rangers boss Mark Warburton and his recruitment team got a lot right at Ibrox this summer. The club made some excellent signings which helped them to Scottish Championship glory and promotion back to the Scottish top-flight.

But one signing that was certainly not a hit was that of Polish goalkeeper Maciej Gostomski.

The stopper arrived at the club from Lech Poznan in a deal until the end of the season, with the aim of putting pressure on current number one Wes Foderingham.

Gostomski, who arrived at Rangers with something of a reputation, did not however have a lasting impact at the club.

The Pole left the club and Glasgow in March, as reported by The Scotsman, after failing to force his way into the first-team picture at Rangers under Warburton.

So after a three-month spell at Rangers what was next for Gostomski?

He has certainly been in the news again this week in his native Poland.

It is reported by Przeglad Sportowy that the goalie has pulled out of a move to top-flight challengers Lechia Gdansk at the last moment – to sign for former team Drutex Bytovia who will be playing their football in the Polish second-tier, the I Liga.

He has been training with recently crowned I Liga champions Arka Gydnia since leaving Rangers and now looks to have found himself a new team back in Poland.

Things never really panned out for Gostomski in Glasgow and he certainly won’t be going down in Ibrox folklore.

Here’s hoping he can get back on his feet in Poland.
