Cammy Bell has reportedly asked to leave Rangers to join Aberdeen on loan for the rest of the season, according to the Daily Record.

The Dons are in desperate need of a keeper for their title challenge - stop laughing at the back - after Liverpool recalled Danny Ward, who was on loan at Pittodrie for the first half of the season.

Bell was initially one of the better players of the disastrous years between administration and the King revolution, although was terrible after returning from injury last season (and please don't remind us about that Motherwell goal.) Wes Foderingham is now the club's number one, and with the club also possessing two very promising talents in Liam Kelly and Robby McCrorie, there might be little need for him.

So, should we let him go? It doesn't make too much difference to us, although he's probably on reasonable wages and is almost certain to leave the club at the end of the season. With Maciej Gostomski being added this window too, the loaning of Liam Kelly to East Fife doesn't even matter. There's simply no point in paying Bell's wages, and if supposed title challengers Aberdeen think their team can be vastly improved by our fourth-choice goalkeeper, then we might as well let him go.
