Stefan Marinovic joins Bristol City on short-term deal

There is no doubt that Allan McGregor has been an excellent addition for Steven Gerrard as he has played a crucial role for Rangers in his second spell with the club and solidifying his place at Ibrox as a fan favourite.

Alongside Wes Foderingham, the Light Blues already have a number of impressive goalkeepers on their books, however, they could have had another experienced international join them in January, although he has now found a new club in England’s Championship.

What’s the News?

Stefan Marinovic has been snapped up by Bristol City on a deal until the end of the season as they look to strengthen the position following Frank Fielding’s season-ending injury, per BBC Sport.

However, the New Zealand international shot-stopper could have been playing his football in Scotland with Rangers as he allegedly had a trial with the club in the latter stages of the January transfer window, per Football Insider.

The Verdict:

The 27-year-old could have been an excellent future addition to the Rangers squad as they looked for reinforcements in the winter transfer window.

With McGregor reaching the final stages of his career and Foderingham seemingly appearing to be out of favour at the moment, Marinovic could have been a player that would have helped to strengthen the department and provided the place with some healthy competition.

However, he has since joined Bristol City and will look to help them with their Championship playoff aims as Lee Johnson’s men look to cap off an excellent season.

If he does play well, Rangers may be wondering whether they missed out on an opportunity for the former Vancouver Whitecaps ‘keeper and will hope they do not potentially rue letting him go from right under their noses.
