Rangers manager Steven Gerrard was disappointed with how his side conceded the opening goal against Hibernian last night.
Allan McGregor came out of his goal to try and collect a high ball but he only managed to flap at it before Paul Hanlon slotted home.
Gerrard feels McGregor could have done more to prevent the goal, although he was at pains to point out that the 38-year-old has done his fair share to win points for his team this season, and shouldn’t be overly criticised:
“We’ve obviously conceded a goal, I think Allan will be disappointed with it. Obviously, he’s been phenomenal for me as a goalkeeper. But I think maybe when he watches that back he’ll probably say to himself, should I have come? Should I have stayed? Which I’m sure he’ll discuss with Colin Stewart, but once he does come, he has to do better. But, he’s saved us many many times before so maybe, we can excuse him from criticism.”
McGregor would have been a relieved man when George Edmundson scored just before the interval to equalise, and with Ianis Hagi scoring late on to seal the win, it didn’t prove to be a costly mistake.
The veteran shot-stopper continues to impress in goal despite nearing the end of his career, and his performances have been rewarded with a contract extension that will keep him at Ibrox until the summer of 2021.
