Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told the club's official YouTube channel that goalkeeper Cammy Bell is set to leave the club this week.

Bell, 29, joined Rangers from Kilmarnock back in 2013, and whilst he enjoyed a strong first season at Ibrox, the last two years haven't gone well for the former Scotland international.

Injuries dogged Bell during the 2014/15 season, and then Warburton arrived last summer and brought new goalkeeper Wes Foderingham with him, immediately becoming the first-choice goalkeeper.

Bell subsequently didn't play even one game last season, and now it seems that he's set to leave Rangers for a move to recently-relegated Dundee United.

The Scottish Sun reported on Tuesday that Bell is on the verge of completing a move to Tannadice, with new manager Ray McKinnon keen to bring a new goalkeeper to the club this summer.

Gers boss Warburton spoke to the club's official YouTube channel on Tuesday, and was asked about the future of Bell, confirming that talks are underway.

Warburton praised Bell for his service as second-choice goalkeeper last season, but appreciates that the player wants to play first-team football - and even confirmed that Bell will be replaced with the signing of a new goalkeeper this summer.

"Negotiations are underway," said Warburton. "Cammy is a top quality international player, and he wants to play games - there's no doubt about that. He wants to play games and he was superb for us last season as a more than able number two, but he wants more than that understandably. We're looking for three or four, and a goalkeeper will be one of those," he added.
