Wes Foderingham has revealed he was priced out of a move away from Rangers after being bombed from the first-team.

The stopper was told by manager Steven Gerrard that he faced an Ibrox exit two years ago after the Liverpool legend claimed he "wasn't his type of person". The suggestion, Foderingham believes, being that he was not willing to duke it out with Allan McGregor to be the Light Blues' first choice.

Foderingham was willing to depart the club, however he says chiefs made it difficult by keeping their asking price too high. And he told how he was not allowed to train with his teammates. "When McGregor came in it was always the club’s intention to sell me that summer, " Foderingham told Si Ferry on Open Goal. "He just said to me, 'You're not my type of person', and I was thinking, 'Okay'. I found it quite strange. 

"He kind of questioned my willingness to be there and fight for a position which I don't think I showed anything to suggest I wasn't happy to fight for my place. I've fought for my place my whole career, it's not something that's new to me.

"The decision was made, I was papped out and not even training with the main team. I was training with the goalies but whenever we went into the main session I had to stay over. I couldn't believe it. I couldn't believe what was happening, but it is what it is. Sometimes a manager takes a liking to you, sometimes they don't.

"So I thought I was away that summer. I spoke to my agent again and he said, 'The club wants X amount for you and we're struggling to get that, no-one is biting at that amount'. The club said I wasn't going on loan, that was the figure they wanted. I was priced out a move at that point.

"As time went on the price dropped but it was never a realistic figure for me to get out."
