Allan McGregor rejoins Rangers on two-year deal

Allan McGregor rejoins Rangers on two-year deal

The Gers had already tied up one new signing earlier this week with a pre-contract agreement for Burnley midfielder Scott Arfield - and now another deal has been struck.

Rangers look to be faring better in persuit of former Ibrox star Allan McGregor though.

He's likely to be a hugely popular signing with the club's supporters.

McGregor will now battle with Wes Foderingham and Jak Alnwick to become the number 1 between the sticks for the Scottish giants. He has been linked with moves to Nottingham Forest and Sheffield Wednesday. Hull finished 18th in the Championship this season and while manager Nigel Adkins wanted McGregor to stay, the keeper rejected the new terms offered and became a free agent.

McGregor, who has 38 worldwide caps, moved to Hull after a year in the Turkish top flight.

He described the lure of returning to Rangers, where he believes he has unfinished business, as too strong to resist.

The four-game series ends in 2019 at Beaver Stadium, and the programs have no plans to renew over the next decade. This will be the 19th consecutive year that Penn State will play at least one regular-season night game.

The 35-cap Scotland worldwide won three league titles, a hat-trick of Scottish Cups and five League Cup titles during his first Rangers stint. He lifted 11 trophies in total for the Ibrox club. "To be back is incredible".

"I'm buzzing to be back, I can not keep the smile off my face".

The 36-year-old shot-stopper came up through the ranks with Rangers, racking up almost 300 appearances for the club before leaving for Besiktas in 2012.

"We need to make this place a fortress where nobody wants to come", he said.

"If you keep doing that, as we've seen before, that's what wins you titles". It came as a surprise.
