The Rangers Review journalist Joshua Barrie has now revealed some worrying news from inside Ibrox involving Allan McGregor.
The Lowdown: Out of contract
McGregor is out of contract this summer, meaning that he will leave Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team as a free agent if a new deal is not signed.
The veteran goalkeeper is 40 years of age now, and so there is a big decision to be made over whether he will be able to carry on into next season.
Despite his age, the Ibrox legend was a huge part of the manager’s plans this season, racking up over 4,000 minutes played in all competitions.
The Latest: No talks
Taking to Twitter, Barrie has shared the inside scoop – McGregor has not entered talks with the club with regards to a new deal and is not interested in a coaching role with the Teddy Bears either.
However, both parties are ‘open’ to discussions: “I understand that Allan McGregor has not entered talks with Rangers and isn’t currently interested in a coaching role. Both sides are open to discussions however none have taken place at this moment in time.”
The Verdict: Worrying
It certainly is worrying to hear that talks are not taking place over a new contract for McGregor.
He managed to keep 17 clean sheets and concede fewer than a goal a game last term, including three shutouts in the UEFA Europa League, helping them on their way to the final against Frankfurt (Transfermarkt).
Should McGregor retire at Rangers?
In their European journey, the Scotsman saved a penalty, made no errors leading to goals and averaged 2.9 saves per match (SofaScore), showing that he is still capable of performing at the highest level.
We feel the Light Blues need to tie him down to a short-term extension as soon as possible.
