Rangers legend thinks third Ibrox star deserves PotY nomination

Rangers legend Derek Johnstone believes that Ibrox number one Allan McGregor can feel “aggrieved” to have missed out on a nomination for PFA Scotland Player of the Year after being “so consistent” for the Gers this season.

The Barca Bear insists McGregor has been “like a captain” and led by example this season by playing at “such a high level” this season that he deserved a nod.
“He has been like a captain for Rangers this season and he doesn’t need to wear the armband to lead by example,”
Johnstone told the Evening Times.

“Whenever something needs sorted on the park, whenever a team-mate needs defended, he is out of his area and involved.
“You need to stick up for each other on the field and you have to back each other. Allan certainly does that, although he has been booked a couple of times for arguing with referees.
“He has been so consistent and played at such a high level this term so he can feel aggrieved at not being nominated.”
McGregor has been one of Rangers’ most consistent players this season, alongside James Tavernier, but if anyone deserved a place on the shortlist it was Tavernier.

There’s no doubting how important McGregor has been for Gerrard’s side this season though as the Gers tried to close the gap to Celtic.
With time ticking down on McGregor’s career, hopefully, the Gers keeper can maintain this level of performance a little bit longer.
