Former Glasgow Rangers goalkeeper Jak Alnwick has said that he was disappointed not to get more opportunities at Ibrox under Steven Gerrard.
The 27-year-old spent the previous campaign on loan at Blackpool in the English League One, and had spent three years on the books of the Gers from 2017 before he moved on recently. He will now be joining St. Mirren, who also play in the Scottish Premiership.
Alnwick has been speaking following his departure, and he spoke about being disappointed not to get more chances at Ibrox. He said:
“It’s obviously disappointing that I didn’t get to show what I could really do.
“I played a few cup games and most goalkeepers will tell you that if you are only doing that every five or six weeks, you can’t get that momentum.
“For any player, if you are playing week-in, week-out, it’s just comes more naturally.
“So I was disappointed that I didn’t get the chance but I’m back in the same league.
“First and foremost, I want to prove to myself that I can do it.
“In my time there, I played a few games and was quite pleased with a lot of them.
Alnwick’s frustration is certainly understandable. All in all, he managed just 11 games in all competitions for the club, which is nowhere near enough time to really prove to anybody that you have what it takes to make it at the very top of the game.
Are you disappointed at the departure of Jak Alnwick?
However, as soon as Allan McGregor returned, it was always going to be difficult for anyone to muscle their way in, something which new boy Jon McLaughlin will likely soon find out. Alnwick’s job is now to show all of those at Ibrox that he deserved more opportunities.
