Ex-Scotland and Rangers striker Billy Dodds was blown away by Allan McGregor’s performance in goals on Sunday.
McGregor, 38, was in fine form against Hamilton but couldn’t do enough to stop Steven Gerrard’s Rangers dropping two points and drawing 1-1 in South Lanarkshire.
According to stats by WhoScored, McGregor made six saves to keep the Accies at bay, which is the highest number he’s had to make in a Premiership match this season.
However, McGregor found himself beaten at the death when Ross Callachan equalised for struggling Hamilton.
Despite that, Dodds was impressed by the veteran goalkeeper’s performance.
“McGregor was man of the match even for the equalising goal he makes a worldie save just before it,” Dodds said on Sportscene on Sunday, as quoted on the BBC Sport website.
“Accies have shown an incredible mentality and desire, even though it’s just a point that’s the sort of result that could give them belief for the rest of the season.”
Not even a legend can save the team sometimes
McGregor is going to go down as a Rangers legend once his hangs his gloves up once and for all with his performance against Hamilton something that we’ve come to expect from him in his years at Ibrox.
Despite Rangers’ defence being so solid throughout the season and conceding just eight goals in 28 Premiership matches, only two goalkeepers have prevented more goals than McGregor [3.64] this season [Wyscout].
Out of the saves he’s made, 47 per cent of them have called upon his reflexes which further emphasises how good he’s been in between the stick this term.
McGregor had a great day at Hamilton but ended up playing for a team that conceded a late, stoppage-time goal and also fail to win.
Based on how the two teams played, a draw was a fair result but McGregor deserved to play for a team that won.
He was let down massively by his team-mates on Sunday and we hope they make amends soon enough. We want to get title number 55 wrapped up as soon as possible.
