Deal all but done: Senior man heads to Rangers after Caixinha raid - report

By Matt Bullin

Kilmarnock physio Alex MacQueen has quit the club to join Scottish Premiership rivals Rangers, according to a report.

The Scottish Sun claims MacQueen will become Pedro Caixinha’s “first summer signing” and take up his duties at Ibrox immediately.

MacQueen has been at Kilmarnock for 15 years and is a popular member of the coaching staff, however it is understood he has made the decision to leave.

His final game with Killie was their clash at Rugby Park with Ross County on Saturday, which saw his club go down 2-1.

Conor Sammon opened the scoring for Kilmarnock from the spot before Liam Boyce scored either side of the break to claim all three points for his side.

MacQueen was called into action to provide treatment for Greg Kiltie on the brink of half time, before the player was taken off on a stretcher and replaced by Rory McKenzie.

According to the report, a source close to MacQueen, Rangers “was the one job he would consider leaving Killie for”.

Rangers are set to play their final game of the season on Sunday afternoon as they travel to McDiarmid Park to take on St Johnstone.

The Gers have already secured third spot in the Premiership and with it, a return to Europe next season.

Meanwhile St. Johnstone have also enjoyed a successful campaign and will finish fourth, three points behind Rangers, if they win on Sunday.

In other Rangers news, Caixinha has lauded praise on this injury-prone star.
