Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has revealed that the club are trying to tie down goalkeeper Allan McGregor for another year.
The 39-year-old showed how indispensable he is to the team when he pulled off an outstanding save in the 1-1 draw against Slavia Prague last night. When asked about the keeper’s future after the game, Gerrard replied:
“I’ve spoken before about how much we rate Allan, how much we love him here, how much we want him to carry on. He knows what’s on the table. He’s in discussions… I hope we get it over the line and sign him up for another year.”
McGregor’s current deal expires in the summer and it is surprising that the Scottish club have left it so late in the season to secure the club legend on a longer-term contract.
Despite his age, the former Scotland international has shown no signs of losing agility, as anyone who watched yesterday’s game can attest.
McGregor is also a senior player in the dressing room and his experience has undoubtedly helped the Light Blues end their ten-year wait for a league title. Every Gers supporter will be hoping he signs on the dotted line sooner rather than later.
