Paddy Kenny has been left blown away by some contract news that he has now heard from Glasgow Rangers sources.
The Lowdown: McGregor talks
As per Football Insider, the Teddy Bears are now in advanced talks with Allan McGregor over a new deal.
The Latest: Kenny reacts
Speaking to Football Insider, fellow former Premier League goalkeeper Kenny has now given his reaction to that news, with the 43-year-old blown away and claiming it’s ‘perfect for everyone’:
“Age is just a number.
“If he is still doing a job, give him a deal. That’s perfect for everyone. He is proving every week that he has still got it.
“He’s nearly the same age as me and I can’t get out of bed some mornings. I know he will be looked after a lot better but still, it’s incredible.
“He’s not making mistakes and he’s coming up trumps when Rangers need him to. He’s a big reason for them getting to the Europa League final in my opinion.
“He’s a legend at that club and he can probably stay as long as he wants to at this point.”
Should McGregor retire at Rangers?
The Verdict: Deserved
If McGregor feels that he can carry on playing at the highest level at 40 years of age, then a new deal would be richly deserved.
He has managed to keep 16 clean sheets in total so far this season, including three in the UEFA Europa League, helping them miraculously reach the final against Frankfurt (Transfermarkt).
In their European journey, he has saved a penalty, made no errors leading to goals and averaged 2.8 saves per game (SofaScore), playing a big part as to why the Light Blues have managed to get so far.
Nonetheless, McGregor is showing no signs of slowing down just yet, and so the Gers need to tie him down at the risk of losing him on a free this summer.
