RANGERS have confirmed that goalkeeper Allan McGregor has penned a new one-year deal. 

The veteran stopper enjoyed an impressive campaign last season as the Govan outfit made it the final of the Europa League and also lifted the Scottish Cup. 

Uncertainty surrounded the future of McGregor this summer, but he has opted to remain at the club where he has already made 469 appearances to date. 

Speaking as he signed his new deal, McGregor commented: “I’m obviously delighted. At the end of last season, there were a lot of games and a lot of concentration on the games. 

“I then had a couple of weeks’ holiday and really thought about it and spoke to a lot of people about it, and everybody said to play as long as you can. 

“After the break, that’s what I was thinking myself, so here we are.” 

Manager, Gio van Bronckhorst, said: “Allan brings us invaluable experience and leadership both on and off the pitch, and I am really pleased he has chosen to stay with us for another year. 

“I have been really impressed with the positive influence he has on our players, and also the dedication he has shown to still be a valuable asset for us in a playing-sense at the age of 40. 

“I feel it is important to have players in our dressing room who really understand the club, and Allan certainly is one of them. 

Goalkeeping coach, Colin Stewart, added: “I’m delighted that Allan has extended his contract at the club. 

“He has been a pleasure to work with over the last four seasons and I am continually impressed by his professional attitude to his work. Every day, Allan strives to improve, and this is infectious within our wider goalkeeping community. 

“This season we have a really strong goalkeeping squad at the club, and I predict a really healthy competition for places.”
