Rangers: Frank McAvennie drops Allan McGregor concern

Rangers: Frank McAvennie drops Allan McGregor concern -Rangers News

Former Scottish Premiership striker Frank McAvennie has dropped a Glasgow Rangers concern after what he has now heard from Ibrox on Allan McGregor.

The Lowdown: Big contract update

As per Sky Sports, Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team have not opened talks over a new contract for Allan McGregor, whose deal runs out this summer.

Both parties want to open up discussions, but the veteran goalkeeper is not interested in moving to a coaching role.

The Gers face the prospect of losing a whole host of players in the next 12 months, with the likes of Alfredo Morelos, Joe Aribo and Ryan Kent all entering the final year of their deals.

The Latest: McAvennie reacts

Reacting in a chat with Football Insider, McAvennie has claimed that the situation with McGregor is the Gers’ ‘biggest problem’ at the moment:

“The biggest problem Rangers have at this moment in time, for me, is Allan McGregor.

“What is he going to do? He has won more games for Rangers than any of their strikers have.

“The reports say they haven’t even spoken to each other yet. You have to get round a table and Rangers have to prove that they want him.

“McLaughlin has come in and he’s done alright but he’s no Allan McGregor. No disrespect to the boy.

“He’s been one of their best signings for years. He is worth his weight in gold so it’s like, watch this space now.

“Keepers can go until a fair age. I would be surprised if Rangers don’t make a very good offer to him.

“To replace what he brings, that costs you money. I don’t care who is there, they aren’t Allan McGregor.”

Rangers fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Sign him up!

Even though McGregor is 40 years of age now, he is showing no signs of slowing down, and so the Light Blues need to get a new contract on the table for him as soon as possible.

He was ever-present in the team last season, playing over 4,000 minutes of football in total over all competitions, and keeping no fewer than 17 clean sheets.

Should McGregor retire at Rangers?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Scotsman was a key player in their memorable UEFA Europa League campaign, where he saved a penalty, made no errors leading to goals and averaged 2.9 saves per game (SofaScore), helping them all the way to the final against Frankfurt.

Nonetheless, the Teddy Bears must tie him down, as he would be very difficult to replace in this window.
