The Rangers fans here in the Transfer Tavern are nervous about the Old Firm this weekend, believing their hearts cannot take another loss.
Having lost all their games against the Bhoys last season, our local Light Blues are desperate to see the Gers finally put one over their biggest rivals at Ibrox on Saturday afternoon.
So, in order to take their minds off things, our punters were delighted about yesterday’s confirmation that Wes Foderingham had signed a new deal. Indeed, the 26-year-old was linked with a move away from the club over the course of the summer, though has committed to Rangers for another year, taking his contract up to 2020.

A popular figure within our bar, the former Swindon stopper has been one of few men to have lasted under Pedro Caixinha after he took over from Mark Warburton and our resident Gers are delighted about his extension.
With that in mind, here’s a look at how they reacted.
