Rangers goalkeeper Jak Alnwick headed out on loan to Scunthorpe United in the summer once Allan McGregor rejoined the Light Blues.
With competition for places tough at Ibrox, the 25-year-old joined the League One outfit on a temporary deal in which he managed to impress.
His spell with the English outfit expired last week, however, Stuart McCall is keen for him to come back to Glanford Park, with Alnwick also thought to be happy to do so.
The Irons’ boss has admitted they are in contact with Rangers and believe that an agreement can be reached.
“We have had liaisons with Rangers and at the end of the day, it is down to what Rangers want to do,” he told The Scottish Sun.
“Then it is down to what Jak and his representatives want and then we are third in the pecking order.
“Rangers are away in Tenerife at the moment on their winter break and they are discussing all loan players, of which they have a few out.
“The feedback we are getting is that they are quite happy with Jak staying on loan until the end of the season.
“I was speaking to Jak the other day and he is more than happy to stay and we are more than happy with him.
“If Rangers allow it and he wants to stay we would like to keep him.”
Alnwick’s chances of getting first-team football at Rangers in the second half of the season would have to be considered to be rather slim.
With McGregor playing as well as he his and Wes Foderingham also an option, it would be beneficial for the 25-year-old to remain at Scunthorpe.
As mentioned, the shot-stopper has been impressive during his time at Glanford Park in League One this season and could look to build on those performances further.
