The centre-back followed in the footsteps of Steven Davis, who also committed to a new one-year deal earlier in the week, and it seems as if the good news won’t end there for Rangers fans.
Daily Record journalist Mark Guidi has made a bold claim about the future of Allan McGregor, with the 40-year-old currently out of contract with Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side.
Speaking on the Go Radio Football Show, he said: “I don’t think he’s ready to give that up. He’s got far too much to offer as a goalkeeper. I’d be absolutely astonished if he does not sign a new one-year deal with Rangers.”
McGregor has made 446 appearances across two separate spells at Rangers and will undoubtedly go down as one of the greats, but his performances this season suggest that he still has something to offer at Ibrox.
The veteran shot-stopper conceded just 25 goals in 29 league appearances this season and was also a crucial part of the Gers’ run to the Europa League final, making 14 appearances in the competition before the penalty shootout heartbreak against Eintracht Frankfurt.
McGregor received a standing ovation when he replaced Jon McLaughlin for the final minute of Rangers’ Scottish Cup final win against Hearts last month and it is clear that he has established himself as a fan favourite during his time at Ibrox.
Tam MacManus was full of praise for the former Hull man after that appearance. He said: “I think he’s Rangers’ best ever goalkeeper personally.
“Andy Goram would be up there. Stefan Klos wasn’t at Rangers a long time.
“But for me, Allan McGregor in terms of longevity and what he’s achieved, is right up there.”
Although van Bronckhorst may feel that a younger ‘keeper is needed at Rangers next season, McGregor undoubtedly still has something to offer the Teddy Bears and from what Guidi suggests, it seems as if a new one-year deal is on the horizon for the Gers legend, something that supporters will no doubt love.
