Rangers youngster Aidan McAdams is putting the finishing touches on a loan exit from the club, according to Football Insider

The stopper spent the first half of the season on loan at Edinburgh City, and is understood to be on his way to Northern Irish outfit Portadown.

It is understood that the 20-year-old is completing a medical ahead of a potential deal today.


The report suggests that the Gers are happy for the rising star to head out on loan this month because they have an abundance of goalkeepers at their disposal.

As well as senior duo Allan McGregor and Wes Foderingham, the Light Blues have Andy Firth in the first-team squad, while Kieran Wright, Robby McCrorie, Brian Kinnear all play for the development and age-group sides.

The club also has Jak Alnwick at their disposal, although he is currently injured and on a season-long loan at Blackpool, and is expected to leave Rangers when his contract expires at the end of the season.

Is this a good move for McAdams?

Without a doubt, yes.

Given the amount of goalkeeping talent available to the Gers right now, it seems as if McAdams would have to wait a long time for any meaningful opportunity with the senior side.

With that in mind, he needs to be playing regular first team football somewhere, and Portadown makes as much sense as anywhere.

McAdams did a decent enough job during his spell with Edinburgh City in the first half of the campaign, and hopefully he can continue to grow and develop in Northern Ireland.
