Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor has signed a one-year extension with the club that will take him into his 16th season with the club over two spells. McGregor’s contract was set to expire in the summer and was expected to leave the club. He came on for the final few minutes of their Scottish Cup final against Hearts. McGregor has decided to remain a part of the squad as Rangers bid to reclaim the Scottish Premiership title from Celtic next season. McGregor played a key role as the Ibrox side reached the Europa League Final last season.
“I’m obviously delighted,” Allan McGregor said after signing a one-year contract extension with Rangers. “At the end of last season, there were a lot of games and a lot of concentration on the games. I then had a couple of weeks’ holiday and really thought about it and spoke to a lot of people about it, and everybody said to play as long as you can. After the break, that’s what I was thinking myself, so here we are.”
“Allan brings us invaluable experience and leadership both on and off the pitch, and I am really pleased he has chosen to stay with us for another year,” Rangers head coach Giovanni van Bronkhorst said. “I have been really impressed with the positive influence he has on our players, and also the dedication he has shown to still be a valuable asset for us in a playing sense at the age of 40.”
