Kris Boyd shares 'time is up' view for Rangers veteran Allan McGregor
Kris Boyd has urged Rangers to respect Ibrox legend Allan McGregor’s decision on his future as the saga continues.
The Light Blues veteran is out of contract with the Gers but is yet to make a definitive decision on his future.
Despite everything the shot-stopper has done for the club over the last couple of decades, Boyd believes the Bears will want to know sooner rather than later.
He told Sky Sports: “With McGregor, I think if you’d have said a few months ago this would have been his last season, but with the way the season finished for him, he probably wants more of it. It’s a difficult one because when you come to the end of your career you might only play 10 games and then, all of a sudden, you feel maybe your time is up.
“Allan played the majority of the games last season and it’s very difficult to walk away from playing 30-40 games because your fitness levels are there and you have shown you can do it at European level, won the Scottish Cup and pushed Celtic all the way in the league.
“From a Rangers point of view, you’ve got to respect that because he has done a lot for the football club, but I can understand Rangers will want to know what is happening soon.”

Get it sorted.
McGregor has been a stalwart in the Glasgow side for as long as many people can remember.
The goalkeeper is undoubtedly a legend and could most likely carry on for another few seasons if he really wanted to.
His form did shake at times during the 2021/22 campaign but considering that he is 40 years old, he is still as nimble as ever.
Jon McLaughlin has done the business when stepping in for McGregor but he has never done it over the course of an entire season for the Gers which is somewhat worrying.
If they throw him in at the deep end should his senior goalkeeper leave, it could pose serious problems for Giovanni van Bronckhorst.
With that being said, he has been learning from one of the best in the business for quite some time now which could make him the perfect successor.
Either way, the situation needs to be resolved ahead of the 2022/23 term.
