Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor is a doubt for this weekend’s Old Firm game, according to the Daily Record.

The Scottish newspaper mentioned McGregor amongst a list of potential injured stars for Rangers as they prepare to face off against their rivals in the top of the table clash.

The Ibrox side currently sit top of the Scottish Premiership with the chance to go four points ahead of Celtic should they pick up a victory at Celtic Park.

But losing first choice keeper Allan McGregor would represent a considerable blow with Old Firm rookie Jon McLaughlin likely to be called upon to replace the iconic Ibrox stopper.


McGregor is one of a number of injury worries for Rangers heading into the match with first-teamers Kemar Roofe and Joe Aribo major doubts after extended injury lay-offs.

Steven Gerrard has been boosted by the news that first-team full-back Borna Barisic is set to play for Croatia v France meaning he should be available if he comes through that match unscathed.
