Scunthorpe United close in on Rangers stopper

Stuart McCall will make Glasgow Rangers goalkeeper Jak Alnwick his first signing at Glanford Park, according to Football Insider.

The 25-year-old is reportedly happy to leave Ibrox in search of regular football after falling behind two other keepers in the pecking order. Alnwick, brother of Bolton keeper Ben, has found himself third-choice goalkeeper at Rangers this season behind Allan McGregor and Wes Foderingham.

McGregor took over as custodian in the summer and Foderingham was expected to depart, but instead he has stayed put. That has cleared the way for former Newcastle trainee for Alnwick to go out on loan. He will become new Scunthorpe boss Stuart McCall’s first signing since replacing Nick Daws at Glanford Park earlier this week.

Alnwick joined Rangers from then-League One side Port Vale in January 2017 and he has made only 11 appearances since his arrival at the club. He’s also played on loan at Gateshead and Bradford City, both during his time as a Newcastle youngster.

Our View

Scunthorpe need to change something, quickly. Daws’ side looked devoid of ideas against Fleetwood last week and McCall has to pick them up quickly.

Alnwick had been linked with a move to Bristol City earlier in the summer and is seen as an impressive prospect, even if his Rangers spell hasn’t gone well.
