Rangers linked with Daniel Bachmann but let ideal long-term goalkeeper Liam Kelly leave last summer

Liam Kelly left Rangers permanently last summer.

Rangers have reportedly made contact with Daniel Bachmann’s representatives about a summer move, according to Austrian media outlet LAOLA1.

The Watford goalkeeper is currently on loan at Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership but could be set for a summer move.

Rangers could bring the 24-year-old in, especially if Wes Foderingham leaves in the summer. The Gers need a back-up choice to Allan McGregor.

 

And with McGregor entering the final year of his contract, and possibly his career, the ideal goalkeeper choice is someone who can replace him for the long-term.

But Rangers already had that player on their books and they let him go last summer. Liam Kelly opted to leave Ibrox and move to Livingston ahead of the 2018/19 season.

After guiding Livingston to promotion during a loan spell last season, Kelly returned for their Scottish Premiership campaign.

And the 23-year-old has been in superb form this season. The 0-0 draw with Celtic last weekend was his 17th clean sheet of the season.

Kelly’s form this season has also seen him receive a call-up to the Scotland senior squad, having represented his country at various youth levels in the past.

The youngster is a future star for club and country and Rangers’ decision to let him leave looks questionable. While Bachmann might be a good addition, perhaps Rangers should have had more patience with Kelly.
