Signing Turkey U21 goalkeeper Berke Ozer will be right move for Rangers

Rangers have been linked with a move for Fenerbahce goalkeeper Berke Ozer, according to En Son Haber.

The Gers have been in the market to sign a goalkeeper because of uncertainty regarding the future of veteran Allan McGregor at the club.

The 22-year-old has already confirmed that he will leave Fenerbahce as his four-year contract is set to expire on June 30.

He was offered a new two-year deal to stay at the club but the Turkey U21 international refused the offer as he wants to play more first-team football.

Right call

Ozer has remained second-fiddle during his time at Fenerbahce and it seems like Rangers could be the best move for him in terms of getting more first-team football minutes under his belt.

In the 14 games he played in the Turkish League during the recently concluded campaign, the goalkeeper kept two clean sheets and conceded 16 goals at an average of 1.1 goals per game [FootyStats].

He also played three Europa League games for Fenerbahce in the 2021-22 season, conceding only two goals and keeping one clean sheet.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst is in search of a new first-team goalkeeper going into next season. Rangers’ hero Allan McGregor is likely to retire after his emotional appearance in the Scottish Cup final.

As per Sky Sports, he is yet to enter into contractual discussions with the Gers as he is keener on getting a coaching role.

Therefore, signing someone like Ozer, who is eager to step up in his career as a first-team goalkeeper, might prove to be a perfect move for him and the Rangers.
