Port Vale favourite is one of six released by Glasgow Rangers



Former Port Vale keeper Jak Alnwick has been released by Glasgow Rangers.

The 26 year old is one of six players being let go by the SPL giants after clubs voted to end their season.

Alnwick became hugely popular at Vale after arriving on a free from Newcastle United in the summer of 2015.

He would play 79 games, mostly under Rob Page, taking his first team chance when Chris Neal was injured and doing so well that he kept the former player of the year out of the side.

Neal departed for Fleetwood in search of first-team football, but Vale then sold Alnwick in January 2017 after Rangers triggered a release clause in his contract.

The £250,000 fee boosted Vale’s finances in the short term but Alnwick’s departure contributed to their relegation from League One that season.

He only played 11 games for Rangers, but spent the 2018/19 campaign on loan at Scunthorpe and then last season on loan at Blackpool.

There was speculation of Blackpool making that move permanent last season. Alnwick was first choice keeper but then forced out of action when he injured his arm on Boxing Day.

Whatever his next destination, Vale fans will wish him well.

The other players being released by Rangers are Andy Halliday, Jon Flanagan, Wes Foderingham, Jason Holt and Jordan Rossiter.
