Speaking to the club’s official website, Matt Gilks has hailed Wes Foderingham, saying he has been fantastic for Rangers.

Gilks completed a move to Ibrox on Friday, in the process becoming Mark Warburton’s 7th signing of what has been a busy summer transfer window so far.

He is the latest of several experienced players to sign on at the club, with the likes of Joey Barton, Clint Hill and Niko Kranjcar all moving to Scotland also.

He has principally arrived as back up to current number one Wes Foderingham and admits he is aiming to push his rival for a first team place next season.

“Wes was fantastic last season,” he told rangers.co.uk.

“I know Wes had a fantastic season and obviously I want to play. I’m going to push, but if I can push Wes and if it improves Wes for this team, I’m doing my job as well.”

It will certainly be interesting to see what other work that Warburton looks to do in the summer transfer window now.

The plan was always to add experience to his relatively young squad and he has done that in abundance with the majority of the signings he has made.

Whether he considers what he has added enough remains to be seen with this window having already been a busy one for Rangers before it has officially opened.
