Rangers in ‘advanced talks’ in imminent return for ex-star

Reports are breaking in the past 30 minutes that former Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor has not only entered talks to return to Ibrox in just over a month, but that negotiations are at an advanced stage with a reported contract on offer of 24 months.

The 36 year old keeper left along with the ‘deserters’ in 2012, but has never quite attracted the same ire from fans that the likes of Steven Whittaker and Steven Naismith did, with more affection towards him and Steven Davis, for example.

With current number one at Ibrox Wes Foderingham suffering a mysterious injury and not making the match day squad for Hearts, the signature of McGregor on top of Burnley’s Scott Arfield would throw serious questions about the future of the English stopper, who, in fairness, has never fully convinced all fans of his worth between the sticks.

Whether re-signing McGregor would dislodge the ex-Swindon man in goal remains to be seen, but the Scotland international is a superior goalkeeper in every sense and it’s a massive upgrade, even aged 36.

We will await confirmation of this one going through.

  1. There ha been poor uptake so far in season ticket sales so silly season has started early.
    he is better than Fod but he fucked off before for money saying Rangers are dead

  2. I like this one and if right i have read that more good signings are on there way now we should stop the under 23 and there under 21 and under 20s at Selltic old heads from EPL will do us thanks.lets do this.

  3. Is still like the hearts keeper, but this would be another step forward for us… it will actually help our defence especially in set pieces which hearts showed up again at the weekend.
    And for all those complaining about deserters… don’t forget that these players took a pay cut before they left to keep the club going.

  4. I would Sell Fod & Alnwick
    Bring in McGregor
    Bring in a No.2 for Mcgregor who can challenge him and can replace him in the long term
    Or
    Give young Liam Kelly a Run Out
    🤔⚽

  5. McGregor couldn’t drop our club quick enough to get away in 2012 when he realised he could personally profit on our loss. Steven Davis is the only player from that period who I would welcome back given he’s good enough. He insisted on a deal that saw the club recoup £800k

    The others including McGregor have ‘previous’ and by my logic wouldn’t be welcomed. Moreover, he’s not a significant upgrade on what we already have.
