We’re delighted to welcome former Rangers manager Alex McLeish as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Ibrox…
Alex McLeish was left thrilled by the performance of Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor in the 1-1 draw against Slavia Praha on Thursday.
The Bears welcome the Czech side back to Glasgow next week with an away goal and as favourites to reach the quarter-finals of the Europa League.
McGregor pulled off an incredible save in the dying moments, with McLeish in awe of his reflexes that helped keep his side in the game.
Speaking exclusively to Ibrox News, McLeish said, “It was an amazing save.
“The reactions of the save. That’s the nouse of the man, he knows where to go and he always gives himself a good chance to get down.
“What you have to say, at the age of 39, his reflexes were super quick.”
All of the praise has been for McGregor.
It isn’t the first time that has happened this season either, with Greegsy having saved the Bears numerous times in this incredible defensive record.
Most outsiders claim that McGregor has been able to sit in his deckchair with little work in games, but he has had to make a number of brilliant saves, especially in recent weeks.
McLeish is spot on, with the experience of the keeper allowing himself to always be in the right position which gives him the highest chance of making saves.
Long may this success continue at Ibrox, regardless of his age.
