WES FODERINGHAM will assess his Rangers options at the end of the campaign if he can’t dislodge Allan McGregor and become first choice keeper at Ibrox.

The Englishman returned between the sticks on Saturday and kept a clean sheet in the goalless draw with St Johnstone as Steven Gerrard’s side dropped two crucial Premiership points.

It was just the fifth competitive outing that Foderingham has had this season and the 28-year-old admits it has been a frustrating campaign being out of the side.

Foderingham said: “It’s very difficult. I’m always going to back the team.

“I’m always going to back Allan. I see myself as a No. 1 keeper so sitting on the sidelines every week is not ideal, but I’m a professional.

“I train hard. I work hard. And when I get an opportunity to play, I try to do myself justice.

“Fortunately enough for me, in the games that I’ve played, I’ve thought I’ve fared well.

“Allan has done well. He is making it very difficult for me because he has played extremely well, particularly at the start of the season in our strong performances in Europe. He’s a top, top goalkeeper.

“All I can do, when I get the opportunity to play, is show my talents and keep training hard. I don’t pick the team so all I can do is keep training hard.

“I won’t put a timescale on it. I look at all the options that are available to me and I make decisions based on that so we will see where we are at the end of the season.

“We have had discussions and he knows I want to play. But I also know Allan is playing really well so it’s a difficult situation I’m in. I’m here till the end of the season so we will review it then.”

Foderingham will start against Kilmarnock on Wednesday night as McGregor serves the second game of his suspension after being punished by the Scottish FA last week.

A quarter-final meeting with Aberdeen will be on the line at Ibrox and Foderingham knows it is a significant 90 minutes for the Light Blues as they look to take another step towards Hampden.

He said: “It’s massive. It’s huge. It’s a chance to win a major trophy. At a club like Rangers, we should be in finals.

“We should be winning these competitions, but nobody is going to give it to you. It was a disappointing result today. We will need to put in a strong, strong performance to get past Killie in the next round.

“There is a lot of football to be played. We have made it a lot more difficult for ourselves by dropping points today but there is a lot of football to be played.”
