Chris Sutton awestruck of Allan McGregor after Rangers penalty save v Celtic
Chris Sutton was left awestruck by Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor after the 2-0 victory against Celtic on Sunday afternoon.
The Bears veteran saved a penalty from Odsonne Edouard and ensured his side cruised into the next round of the Scottish Cup after the Old Firm.
Although Sutton slammed the Frenchman, he did admit that McGregor has been “outstanding” for the Scottish Premiership champions this season.
Speaking during live commentary of the game on Premier Sports, even Sutton had to applaud Greegsy as he stepped up once again.
“Brilliant keeping, you’ve got to say from McGregor,” he said.
“He guesses the right way, he’s an outstanding goalkeeper. There was a real lack of confidence with the penalty.”
We say it time and time again, but McGregor has been absolutely sensational, not just this season, but throughout his career at Ibrox.
The veteran has pulled off miraculous saves continuously, including that one at Slavia Praha, and this huge stop from Edouard today.
Steven Gerrard’s defence have received great plaudits for their record this season, but it is McGregor that has been the main reason behind most of that.
Thankfully, we have another year of Greegsy in Glasgow, and Celtic will be gutted that they will have to face him yet again next season.
Based on his performances this year, it would be no surprise to see the keeper stay on for numerous seasons in the future, and we can’t wait to see it.
