McGregor's time at Rangers 'is about to come to an end' after embarrassing reveal - pundit
The end is nigh for Allan McGregor at Rangers.
That is the view of former Premier League striker Kevin Phillips, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, about the shot-stopper, who will turn 40 in January, and his future at Ibrox.
McGregor’s contract at Ibrox expires in May 2022 after he signed a one-year extension earlier this year.
The Scottish stalwart has started eight times for the Glasgow club so far this season, conceding 11 goals.
McGregor has made just three saves in three Scottish Premiership starts and has a league-worst 50% save percentage (FBref).
The keeper started both games as Rangers were dumped out of Champions League qualifying with a 4-2 aggregate loss against Malmo in August.

He has been rotated with fellow veteran Jon McLaughlin this season.
Phillips claimed it is time for McGregor to “move on”, whether that be to another club or a move into Rangers’ coaching set-up.
“I think the end is nigh for him,” he told Football Insider.
“I think maybe they’ve got one eye on the future, and it might not be with him between the sticks.
“His time at the club could be about to an end – he’s been a great servant for them.
“But I think it’s time to move on.
“Whether he hangs his gloves up, continues playing, or moves into a coaching role at the club, who knows?“
McGregor has made 401 appearances across two spells with Rangers, winning four league titles with the club.
He was named the Scottish Premiership Player of the Year for the 2020-21 season.
