Allan McGregor rejoins Rangers on two-year deal

Allan Mc Gregor has become Steven Gerrard's second signing as Rangers boss

The veteran shotstopper becomes Steven Gerrard's second signing, following the four-year deal for Scott Arfield from Burnley.

Oli McBurnie took to Twitter to express his delight for Allan McGregor after Rangers confirmed on their official website that the 36-year-old had rejoined the club on a two-year deal.

He now hopes to help Gerrard end the club's seven-year wait for a major trophy and create memories to accompany his earlier triumphs.

"I'm not coming here and thinking I'm going to be straight in the team".

"I started training here when I was 12 years old and used to come through the main stand maybe twice a week". Just to be back, it's incredible. But once there is a wee sniff it could happen, then obviously it's exciting. Someone gave me a shout two or three weeks ago to say Bomber (John Brown) wanted my number. We kept talking and here we are.


"Hopefully it will be a good partnership and I heard the coaching staff he is bringing are very good so that can only be a positive".

Rangers might be close to signing the attacking ace, but a deal for his Brighton pal Connor Goldson is proving more tricky. 'I think it is a big coup for the club, ' he told Rangers TV. Hopefully he will bring that winning mentality back.

"You need to make [Ibrox] a fortress where nobody wants to come".

"If you keep doing that, as we've seen before, that's what wins you titles".

With over 350 appearances to his name at club level - between Zenit, Liverpool and Fenerbahce - the Slovakian would add a wealth of experience to the Rangers outfit and Gerrard would undoubtedly know how to get the best out of the centre-back.
