A product of the Rangers youth system, Allan McGregor spent the first 11 years of his professional career at Ibrox.
However, at the height of the club’s financial troubles in 2012, he left for pastures new. Spells with Besiktas, Hull and Cardiff followed.
Yet, when his boyhood club came knocking over the summer, he jumped at the opportunity to come home.
Since then, it is as if he’s never been away. While the manager is yet to settle on a centre-back partnership, McGregor has replaced Wes Foderingham and been Mr Consistent at the back.
His domestic performances have also seen him deservedly wrestle back control of Scotland’s number one jersey from Celtic’s Craig Gordon.
Most recently, he proved his value away at St Mirren. His early saves set the foundation which allowed his side to break down the opposition in the latter stages.
Although League Cup success eluded the Blues, their challenge is still on for the SPL, Europa League and Scottish Cup. McGregor is the one member of the squad who knows what those pursuits require.
Now an accomplished club and international stopper, McGregor is the key to realising the club’s’ ambitions. He will be hoping to add to his substantial Rangers silverware haul come the business end of the season.
