Rangers keeper Allan McGregor may well be one of Rangers’ key men next season, but he won’t enjoy getting himself ready for it.
Speaking to Rangers TV, McGregor revealed that he dreads the intense period before the big kick-off.
So much so that the former Scotland keeper has “nightmares” whilst he’s leading up to it.

“I dreaded pre-season when I was 16,” said McGregor.

“Every year I have nightmares about it when I’m on holiday. I hate it to be honest, but it is what it is. It’s got to be done.
“I think it benefitted me last year, although during pre-season I thought I was absolutely terrible, but there you go.”
At least McGregor grits his teeth and bares it season after season. As McGregor explains, he didn’t have the best pre-season last year.
But he certainly had a superb season. The Rangers goalkeeper was even
shortlisted for a Football Writer’s Award for his performances between the sticks.
And whilst Rangers fell short in the hunt for silverware this year, McGregor thinks there’s plenty to be optimistic about going into the new campaign.

“The way the team was shaping up and progressing, I think hopefully the fans have got a lot to look forward to this season,” said McGregor.
“I think everybody’s champing at the bit to win something for themselves, the families and the fans. It has been a long time, so hopefully, we can make it right this year.”
