Rangers have confirmed today that out-of-favour defender Darren McGregor has departed Ibrox by mutual consent.
The former St Mirren and Cowdenbeath stopper was not in Mark Warburton’s plans and the new manager had confirmed pre-season that Danny Wilson and Rob Kiernan would be his first choice central defence pairing.
In a statement the Club said:
“RANGERS can today confirm that Darren McGregor has left the club by mutual consent.
The central defender spent a year with the Light Blues and earned the club’s Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year awards for 2014/15.
McGregor made 50 appearances in total in his single season at Ibrox, scoring five times.
Darren leaves with the club’s best wishes for a successful future.”
This news comes as no surprise given his total absence from first-team affairs since Warburton took charge, and it seems the 30-year old did not fit into the new manager’s philosophies.
He is wished the very best by all connected with Rangers.
