Rangers expert: Allan McGregor to be snubbed after Sky update

Alan Hutton has said he “feels sorry” for Allan McGregor as he struggles to oust Jon McLaughlin from the Rangers starting lineup.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Gers defender said McGregor will feel he can “do a job” for the Light Blues.

McLaughlin has started every League game for the Bears this season.

He has also featured in all of the sides’ European matches, including a 4-0 defeat to Ajax last Wednesday (7 September).

McGregor featured in Rangers’ Premier Sports cup game against Queen of the South (30 August).

As reported by Sky Sports (13 September), McLaughlin was absent from Rangers’ training session on Tuesday ahead of their Champions League game against Napoli on Wednesday (14 September).

Hutton suggested Van Bronckhorst will stick to his decision to make McLaughlin the number one keeper.

I thought this might happen,” he told Football Insider.

Obviously the manager has come out and made his decision from day one and he has to stick with that. Obviously if Jon McLaughlin goes on a poor run of form he could change it but I don’t think he’s going to switch it up after one bad game because that’s kind of going back on his word and what he said he was going to do. That’s the moment in time we’re at.

I feel sorry for Allan McGregor because he probably feels that he can go in and do a job. He’s obviously still a fantastic goalkeeper and he’s always been there for those big moments. Could he have done better the other night? Who knows. But he’s said the goalkeeping situation isn’t close so that says to me he’s going to stick with Jon McLaughlin, he’s number one for this moment in and for the foreseeable.

In other news, Hutton claimed James Tavernier could regret decision amid ‘huge’ Rangers injury verdict.
