Rangers took Stefan Marinovic on trial last weekend.
Rangers look set to sign one trialist in Matt Polster, but the situation surrounding another has become somewhat complicated in recent days.
Polster’s work permit has been granted according to The Scottish Sun, and the American will now look to finalise his move before Thursday’s transfer deadline.
The Gers also took in former Vancouver Whitecaps goalkeeper Stefan Marinovic last weekend, giving him a week-long trial to try and earn a deal at Ibrox.
Marinovic, 27, has experience in Germany and in Major League Soccer, whilst he is a New Zealand international who has ultimately been attempting to impress Steven Gerrard, just like Polster did.
Bizarrely though, Rangers signed another goalkeeper on Friday. Barrow stopper Andy Firth joined the club in a surprise move, reuniting with Gerrard having worked together at Liverpool.
Firth’s move brings Marinovic’s future into question. Even when Firth’s move was done, Marinovic was still spotted training with Rangers, suggesting there is at least a glimmer of hope for him.
Yet Rangers already have Allan McGregor and Wes Foderingham. Longer-term, loaned-out Robby McCrorie is in the plans, Jak Alnwick is still a Rangers player even if he’s on loan at Scunthorpe United, and now Firth is in too.
If Marinovic signs, that’s six goalkeepers on the books at Ibrox, meaning somebody will surely be the odd man out; right now, it’s surely Marinovic, given that he’s the only one not signed toa Rangers contract.
Yet with Foderingham surely eyeing a return to England for first-team football, Alnwick likely to leave permanently, McCrorie loaned out and Firth inexperienced, there may still be room for Marinovic before deadline day.
This situation has become much more complicated in recent days, and Gerrard must now perform something of a juggling act with his goalkeepers both now and in the future as he weighs up a deal for Marinovic.
