Liam Kelly is set to make a stunning return to Rangers six years after leaving, according to a report.

The goalkeeper, 28, is out of contract at Motherwell and Philippe Clement looks to have swooped to bring him to Ibrox on a free transfer. Jon McLaughlin is set for the exit door and Robby McCrorie has previously made noises about wanting first team football so could follow him.

Kelly was latterly skipper at Fir Park but didn't agree on new terms and the Scottish Sun is now reporting he has agreed to be part of Clement's summer rebuild. He will likely be aware he will be an understudy to Jack Butland but the report adds he still found the offer impossible to reject despite that.

The Scotland international, who will hope to be named in Steve Clarke's Euro 2024 squad tomorrow, started his career at Ibrox and progressed from academy to first team but failed to make a first team appearance. He had loans at East Fife and Livingston before returning to the latter permanently.

Just one strong season with Livi was enough to persuade QPR to take him down south but within two years he was back in Scotland on loan with Motherwell in the January, signing a three-year deal with them that summer.

Clement has admitted there will be major changes to the Gers squad this summer and is believed to also be close to the additions of Brazilian left-back Jefte and Panama centre-back Jose Cordoba.

Kelly was previously linked with Celtic as they look to strengthen in the goalkeeping department but Ibrox now looks to be his destination.
