Introducing: Zander Clark as the man to replace Allan McGregor when he retires

Steven Gerrard has made plenty of additions to his Rangers side in his first season in charge at Ibrox.

A number of men arrived in the summer, whilst a few more also joined up with the Scottish Premiership outfit in the transfer window that has just passed.

It would be fair to say the majority of men have had a positive impact on the squad, as they have managed to have a rather successful campaign so far – compared to the recent years gone by.

One man that has been crucial to how well Rangers have played over the course of the season is Allan McGregor.

The goalkeeper has been a standout during his second spell at the club and has produced a number of solid performances across all competitions for the Light Blues.

However, being 37-years-old, it would be safe to assume that his advancing years does not mean he has many campaigns left in him and Gerrard should look to replace him in the near future – whether that be in the summer or at the end of next season.

And, one man could be the exact type of goalkeeper Rangers need to replace McGregor with.

St. Johnstone’s Zander Clark has been hugely impressive for the club this season with his performances and put in another solid display against Celtic at the weekend – despite his team losing 2-0.

Earlier in the Scottish Premiership season, the 26-year-old had managed to keep five consecutive clean sheets as the club find themselves sitting in mid-table.

His performances had led to calls that he should have been included in the Scotland international set-up for their Nations League matches against Albania and Israel in November but he was overlooked by Alex McLeish.

Clark appears to be severely underrated by the national side despite picking up a number of man-of-the-match awards for St. Johnstone this season.

However, Gerrard should look to keep tabs on the shot-stopper, as he could be the ideal man to replace McGregor once the experienced professional decides its time to hang his gloves up.
