St Mirren Goalie Vaclav Hladky Claims He’s ‘In Negotiations’ with Rangers

St Mirren goalkeeper Vaclav Hladky has claimed he’s currently in negotiations with Rangers – but would much prefer a move to England.

The Czech shot-stopper wrote himself into Buddies folklore last season when he pulled off several impressive saves in the Premiership playoff win over Dundee United, ensuring Saints stayed in the top-flight for at least one more season.

Moreover, the Daily Record reported that a £200,000 bid from a club in Azerbaijan was rejected during the January transfer window, with Hladky’s St Mirren contract set to expire at the end of the season.

With his deal running out, it seems the odds of Hladky sticking around are pretty slim, as he said via the Sun: “Rangers are interested in me. Some negotiations are under way.

“But playing in England is the big dream.

“The biggest dream is the Premier League, but that is a big jump. I know I’ll need to make another step first on the way.

“I’m not crazy enough to think I can go from St Mirren directly to the English top division.

“Going to the Championship would be ideal for me. That is preferable to staying in Scotland.

“This will be my last season with St Mirren.

“Negotiations took place about a new contract. But we have agreed that my football goals are a little higher than here.

“There is still time to sort things out. But by January I would like to know where I will be playing next season, so I can fully focus on keeping St Mirren in the league.

“I have felt great at this club from the first day. I’m very happy here for now.”

Of course, Rangers already have Allan McGregor, Wes Foderingham and Andy Firth, so would signing a player like Hladky make much sense at all for Steven Gerrard’s side?
