Jak Alnwick admits he is happy at Scunthorpe

Rangers sent a number of players out on loan in the summer as Steven Gerrard oversaw a major overhaul of the club he inherited.

One man that departed temporarily was Jak Alnwick, who made the move across the border and joined Scunthorpe United on a short-term deal.

However, it appears as though he is happy to remain with the Irons and does not seem to be too keen on making an early return to Ibrox this winter.


“I’ve had conversations with my agent and said I love it down here and want to keep playing,” he is quoted as saying by the Daily Record.

“I’m not sure what they’re wanting to do, but from my personal point of view I want to keep playing games and there couldn’t be a better club for me to be at.

“I would love to stay but it is dependent on the club here if they want to keep me and it would depend on Rangers if they want to keep me out on loan.

“If everything comes together, then hopefully I can stay.”

The Verdict:

Alnwick has been a mainstay since arriving at Scunthorpe on loan and it is hardly surprising to hear that he is happy at Glanford Park.

The £225k-rated shot-stopper, as per Transfermarkt, found himself on the fringes of Gerrard’s squad early on and would find it extremely difficult to dislodge Allan McGregor from his spot after the fine performances he has managed to produce.

It remains to be seen if Scunthorpe look to extend their deal with Rangers, and if the Scottish Premiership side allow for it to happen, however, the 25-year-old is better off looking to try and get the League One outfit out of relegation trouble.
