This is part of a regular series from our panel of Rangers Super Fans. Each week, our Super Fans will deliver their verdicts on the biggest talking points and news stories around Ibrox.
This week saw confirmation of the news that all Rangers fans were waiting for as Allan McGregor put pen to paper on a new one-year deal.
With his contract set to expire at the end of the current campaign and given his advancing years there were doubts starting to emanate that this could be his farewell season after securing No.55.
But those worries were cast aside on Thursday when the Rangers club website announced that the Gers stalwart had signed up on new terms until 2022.
McGregor, 39, has had a sensational season in the Gers goal, conceding just eight times in 24 Scottish Premiership appearances to inspire the side to 33 games unbeaten with the Invincibles tag just around the corner, as long as they can hold out for five more games.
According to Wyscout he has prevented 0.25 goals per 90, a figure beaten only by Dundee United’s Benjamin Siegrist.
McGregor has also been a colossus on the European stage as he helped to guide the Light Blues to the last 16 of the Europa League before they succumbed to Slavia Prague.
While that defeat will wrangle for some time it was his heroics in the first-leg that ultimately gave Steven Gerrard’s side a shot at glory in the the return fixture at Ibrox, as he made a wonder save late on in Prague.
He has also been on top form in the Old Firm clashes to reassert his status as one of the finest goalkeepers seen in Scotland for some time.
That’s why, when we asked our esteemed panel of Super Fans, they were unequivocal in their opinion that a new deal for McGregor was a cracking bit of business by the club.
Here’s what they had to say…
