Allan McGregor has been a revelation since returning to Rangers this summer.
His saves have bailed out his team on numerous occasions, and not only did he win November’s Player of the Month award, he’s an early candidate for Player of the Season.
Since his arrival, Wes Foderingham hasn’t got a look in. What’s more, the 36-year-old has also won back the Scotland no.1 shirt from Celtic’s Craig Gordon.
McGregor and the rest of the squad have spent the last week training in Tenerife, as they prepare for the second half of the season.
Yesterday, he was the latest of a series of players to give extended interviews.
Inevitably, Rangers’ 1-0 Old Firm win over Celtic before the winter break, cropped up.
The ‘keeper admitted that the win was a great morale boost.
“Hopefully we have got the belief and confidence now after that to actually look and see it and know that we can actually do it”, he explained to Rangers TV.
However, McGregor certainly wasn’t getting carried away.
“At the end of the day it was only three points, but it was thoroughly enjoyable.”
This is something i’m sure many Bears will disagree with. At the end of the day, a win over Celtic has always been worth more than a boost to the points total.
Yet, it’s clear what McGregor is driving at here.
It was a fantastic performance and a long overdue win that has given the Gers a psychological boost, but it doesn’t bring silverware.
Consistency over the duration of the run in will.
The veteran has been there and done that before, and knows exactly what it takes to get there.
