FORMER Rangers, Motherwell and Scotland star Andy Goram is planning a sporting comeback - with Uddingston Cricket Club.

The 48-year-old goalkeeping legend has been approached by club stalwart and groundsman Paul Hoffmann with a view to turning out for the 2nd XI.

And Goram admitted to the Times and Speaker this week that he was keen on the idea, if his current coaching commitements with Hamilton Accies allow.

Although he made his name thanks to his ability on the football field, Goram was also a decent cricketer and is one of only two men - the other being former Rangers manager Scott Symon - to have represented Scotland at both sports.

He also had a spell playing for Uddingston 10 years ago and is enthusiastic about the possibility of renweing his acquaintance with the Villagers.

He said: “Paul has been in touch to say there’s a game there for the 2nds if I want it and I’m definitely up for it if the fixtures mean there is no clash with my work at Hamilton.”
