Rangers FC transfer news: Allan McGregor set to complete move back to old club

The keeper left Rangers in the wake of their financial meltdown in 2012

Wednesday, May 16, 2018

Allan McGregor has finalised his move back to Rangers. 

The keeper was out of contract at Hull and turned down the offer of a new deal from the club. 

Instead, the 36-year-old has decided to return to Rangers six years after quitting in the wake of the club’s financial meltdown.

McGregor is now Steven Gerrard’s second signing since taking over as Rangers boss, following the capture of midfielder Scott Arfield from Burnley earlier this week.

The 35-cap Scotland international won three league titles, a hat-trick of Scottish Cups and five League Cup titles during his first Rangers stint.

After he joined the exodus of big-name stars from the club in 2012, he spent a year with Besiktas in Turkey before joining Hull.

He then racked up almost 150 appearances for the KCOM Stadium club but has now decided it is time to return north. 

McGregor on Twitter spoke of his delight at moving back to Rangers. 

He said: “I’d like to take this chance to thank every single person at Hull City over the last five years. Each and every one of you made me feel welcome.

“When I have the chance to go home to Rangers there’s no possible way on earth I can refuse! I’m buzzing to be home!”
