A Rangers transfer development has emerged on two key Ibrox gems as decisions on their respective futures are imminent heading into the summer window.
He has also claimed that it ‘looks certain’ that Connor Goldson will also be on his way out of Glasgow at the end of the month. Although, it remains to be seen where he will be heading as no clubs have been reported to have agreed on a deal with him.
The Gers head coach will surely be left feeling deflated by the prospect of both players leaving the club, with a decision incoming on whether or not they will be extending their terms. English believes that neither of them will and that will leave two big holes to fill in the squad.
McGregor has been the Dutch head coach’s number one throughout the campaign and enjoyed a terrific campaign in Europe. The veteran averaged a superb SofaScore rating of 6.99 in the Europa League as he started 14 matches in the competition.
He was given an opportunity to say goodbye to the fans over the weekend as van Bronckhorst subbed him on towards the end of extra-time in the 2-0 win over Hearts in the final of the Scottish Cup. This means that, whilst it will still be frustrating for the manager, McGregor will be able to leave the club on a high.
Goldson, meanwhile, has been a reliable, outstanding, centre-back for the club this season. He started a whopping 50 matches across the Europa League and Premiership and averaged a SofaScore rating of 7.00 or higher in both competitions.
Van Bronckhorst could rely upon the colossus to be available for the majority of the campaign and his appearance numbers illustrate how much he relied on the Englishman.
The defender delivered consistently brilliant displays for the Ibrox giants over the course of the campaign and this is why the Dutchman will be gutted by the prospect of him leaving as he will not be able to lean on his quality in almost every match.
It will leave Gers chief Ross Wilson with the difficult task of replacing McGregor in the upcoming transfer window along with Goldson if John Souttar is not viewed as his direct replacement.
