Former Rangers captain Barry Ferguson has made a spectacular claim about imminent new signing Allan McGregor, who only requires to agree and sign a deal in order to clinch the move back north from Hull City.
The former Scotland international has said Nigel Adkins’ outgoing number one is better than Rangers legends Andy Goram and Stefan Klos not to mention a number of world class goalkeepers the recent Clyde coach has played alongside in his career.
“He’s probably the best keeper I’ve played with, and I’ve played with some top ones like The Goalie [Andy Goram], Stefan Klos, Joe Hart, Ben Foster, Brad Friedel, and for me he is up there with the best.”
It’s about as high a compliment as McGregor could get, even if few would exactly agree with the sentiments, but there is no doubt McGregor would instantly be the best goalkeeper in the SPL again should he complete the move back from the Tigers.
The KCOM would certainly be losing a fine number one, but his contract expires in just over a month anyway and McGregor wishes to return to his family now.
Whether too many would concur with Ferguson’s lofty praise for Adkins’ number one is another matter, but he’s definitely a hell of an upgrade to Wes Foderingham.
