Michael Stewart was blown away by Allan McGregor’s save to help Rangers draw 1-1 away at Slavia Prague in the Europa League on Thursday.
Steven Gerrard’s men struggled in the first half and went behind after just seven minutes due to a Nicolae Stanciu screamer from distance.
However, a rare goal by Filip Helander drew the scores level before the break when the centre-back tapped the ball into an empty Slavia net.
Rangers improved in the second half but could have easily lost the match when Lukas Masopust powered a header at goal.
Rx-Hibs and Hearts player Stewart was astonished by what he saw next as McGregor leapt across to his left and not only saved the header but also held onto it.
Wow… Just wow
We’re running out of ways to describe McGregor, who is definitely one of the top two or three contenders to win Rangers’ player of the season award.
However, the following tweet has perfectly described the Light Blues goalkeeper.

For all the goals that the Gers have scored, it says a lot that the goalkeeper is up there because he has been insanely good at times, making saves that a man of his age would usual injure themselves doing.
But McGregor is as much as a match-winner as Alfredo Morelos or James Tavernier. He’s been magnificent.
Rangers were up against a very good team in Slavia Prague, who knocked Premier League high-flyers Leicester out of the round of 32.
Going into the second leg, we’ve got the away goal but the scores are level so it’s definitely advantage Gers at this stage.
But having McGregor in goals is an advantage in every single game. Has there been a better goalkeeper in Europe this season? You’ll struggle to find one.
