Rangers fans have lauded Allan McGregor for his passionate Sky Sports interview following his side’s 1-1 draw at Hamilton on Sunday afternoon.
McGregor produced a number of outstanding saves in both halves to keep the spirited hosts at bay and when Brian Easton scored an own goal in the 80th minute, it looked as though the Gers were on course for a 25th league win of the season.
However, the Gers keeper was finally beaten with virtually the last kick of the game as Ross Callachan squeezed in an effort via the underside of McGregor’s body to snatch a point.
The 39-year-old was the clear standout performer for the Gers on the day but he was visibly angry with his team’s performance and he didn’t mince his words in a post-match interview with Sky Sports.
“Rubbish,” replied McGregor after being asked to sum up the contest. “I thought that for most of the game we were very very poor – the worst I’ve seen us.”
“[There was] a good bit of play for our goal but apart from that, not a lot you can take from that [game].”
“It didn’t look like we wanted to win the game – Hamilton looked like more of a threat than us, which is really disappointing. All credit to them, but we were just so poor today.”
Then, when asked if he could take pleasure in the standard of his own individual performance, he said: “No. I’d rather be rubbish and win.”
Rangers fans loved his honesty and took to social media to praise him.
