Rangers have enjoyed an impressive start to the new season, although their momentum was halted prior to the international break following a narrow defeat in the first Old Firm game of the season.
That loss to Celtic should not dampen the spirits of Steven Gerrard’s side though and the fans can be encouraged by some positive performances during the international break, where one player, in particular, caught the eye.
Goalkeeper Allan McGregor was named as the starter for Scotland for their inaugural UEFA Nations League clash against Albania, replacing Craig Gordon from the friendly drubbing at the hands of Belgium, and played a key part in the result.
McGregor kept a clean sheet as Scotland secured a 2-0 victory to get their campaign in the competition off to the ideal start and Rangers fans took to social media to praise the display from the 36-year-old.
We have gathered some of the best reactions to his performance below.
Whoever made the decision to bring McGregor back to Rangers deserves some credit. What a signing

Had my doubts before kick-off but that was an encouraging display. As comfortable a game as Scotland have had in a long time. Naismith fantastic, O’Donnell MOTM for me. Allan McGregor ahead of Gordon all day.
