The Gers went on to secure an easy 6-1 victory over the League One side at Somerset Park but it wasn’t without its scares, and Foderingham’s carelessness on the ball allowed Alan Forrest to open the scoring for the home side early in the first-half.

The goalie’s colleagues managed to bail him out on this occasion, and Graeme Murty’s men will now have a home tie against Falkirk in the quarter-finals to look forward to, but Foderingham still felt compelled to send out his meā culpā this afternoon:
Great to be through to the next round of the Scottish Cup. Unfortunately for us goalkeepers a bad error usually ends up in the net. Luckily mine wasn’t costly in the end unless you had 6-0 on ur accy. On to the next one 🔴⚪️🔵

Now, he might be joking there, but can you actually imagine somebody did have 6-0 on as a bet? You’d be absolutely furious with Foderingham at work today.
What did you think of the mistake, and is Foderingham the right man to keep goal long-term for Rangers?
