Kelly completes Rangers medical ahead of move


Rangers are closing in on the signing of Motherwell’s Liam Kelly after the goalkeeper completed a medical ahead of a move to Ibrox.

The Scotland international is set to become Philippe Clement’s fifth summer signing, after the arrivals of Jefte, Clinton Nsiala, Connor Barron and Oscar Cortes – while Mohamed Diomande made his loan move permanent.

Kelly will return to the club he started his career in at the youth team and provide competition to No1 Jack Butland, while Robby McCrorie could depart in search of first-team action.

Kelly was part of the Scotland squad at Euro 2024 – but did not feature in Germany.

Boyd: Rangers need stability

Kris Boyd on the challenges ahead for Philippe Clement at Rangers, including if the delays to work at Ibrox will impact the team at the start of the season.

Former Rangers striker Kris Boyd on Sky Sports News:

“Clement will obviously want to bring in his own players. It’s more difficult with the players under contract trying to move them out.

“The ones he’s brought in in the past have done reasonably well but you have to start winning things on a regular basis.

“There have been rumours Connor Goldson and James Tavernier will move on. They’re under contract. It’s not going to be easy to force them out. They need someone to come along and take them off your hands, if that’s the case.

“But a continuous turnover of 10, 12 players every summer is no good. Rangers need to get stability.”

The 2024 summer transfer window in the Premier League and Scottish Premiership officially opens on Friday June 14 – the same day that Euro 2024 starts.

The window will close on August 30 at 11pm UK time in England and at 11.30pm in Scotland.

The Premier League and Scottish Premiership brought forward Deadline Day to link up with the other major leagues in Europe. The closing dates were set following discussions with the leagues in England, Germany, Italy, Spain and France.
