Allan McGregor has been nothing but outstanding for Rangers this season since making his return to Ibrox last summer. The 37-year-old has put in some top quality performances over the campaign and has played a huge role in how well the Light Blues have done over the last ten months or so.
However, the former Scotland international’s playing days are surely limited and it appears Steven Gerrard has already started to plan back-up options for when the time comes, with one impressive individual thought to be on his radar.
What’s the News?
According to a report by Football Insider, Rangers are thought to be plotting a move for St. Johnstone’s Zander Clark this summer.
The goalkeeper has been impressive this season for the Scottish Premiership side and the Light Blues are thought to be keeping tabs on him as they see him as an ideal back-up to the ageing McGregor.
However, Rangers are not believed to be the only club interested, as a number of clubs from either side of the border are said to be keen, although none have been named.
As mentioned, Clark has been magnificent for St. Johnstone this season and has put in a number of solid contributions as he looks to help them finish top of their part of the Scottish Premiership split, as they just missed out on a place in the top-six.
The 26-year-old has put in a number of eye-catching performances, including keeping five consecutive clean sheets before the winter break, which had led to calls for him to be included in the Scotland national team set-up for their Nations League matches.
It will be interesting to see who the other rumoured clubs are thought to be, whilst Rangers would also have a clearer picture of who they could be up against if they did have to battle hard for his signature.
Having played a starring role for St. Johnstone and becoming one of the first names on the team sheet at McDiarmid Park this season, it could be difficult for the Light Blues to try and convince him to come to Ibrox with McGregor in peak form.
