Steven Gerrard has perhaps given a clue about one of the first major decisions of his time as Rangers boss, by paying a huge compliment to recent signing Allan McGregor.

Gerrard has to decide between the returning McGregor and current Gers number Wes Foderingham in what looks set to be a key decision of his time at Ibrox.

He made the remarks that the signing of McGregor was a good decision as “he’s an ex-legend and knows the club inside out and is a positive signing” to Rangers TV, as quoted by the Daily Record.

Intriguingly though, he suggests that the signing of the veteran goalkeeper was about “improving the goalkeeper”.

It remains to be seem what Foderingham thinks of that, but it seems to indicate that both Gerrard and director of football Mark Allen weren’t necessarily impressed with what they saw in goals last season at Ibrox.

Gerrard seems to be interested in building a solid spine to his Gers side, which has saw the centre-back duo of Connor Goldson and Nikola Katic join up at Ibrox in the last week.

But this could also extend to the goalkeeping department, as judging by his comments Gerrard sees McGregor as an upgrade on the players already at Ibrox.

It looks there is going to be sweeping changes at Ibrox next season, and goalkeeper is just one of the positions where there will be a new man at the helm.
