Allan McGregor is poised to make a stunning return to Rangers in a two-year deal, and Rangers fans are giddy with excitement.
The Daily Mail has claimed that the Scotland international, who has been Hull’s number one in the Championship, is out of contract in the summer and is closing in on a Rangers deal.
The 36-year-old quit Ibrox in 2012 when he moved to Besiktas but is keen to return because of family reasons.
The report also says that Director of Football Mark Allen is pushing on with rebuilding the squad despite the uncertainty over the new manager, and he is close to a pre-contract agreement for Scott Arfield – also on a free transfer.
McGregor would be looking to come in as the number one, replacing Wes Foderingham, however, any deal for McGregor would be dependent on him taking a wage cut.
Rangers fans are all over it.
There is some support for Foderingham, but the overwhelming view is that McGrgeor is a big upgrade, despite his age, with one fan saying he would be “phenomenal” and another saying the keeper is “world class”.
Here are the best reactions from excited Rangers fans:

Would play a 36 year old McGregor over wes all day long. I'd play alnwick before wes

No brainer to bring shagger home, sell wes & in next 2 years young Kelly & McCrorie can be our number 1 & 2 goalkeepers.

If can sell Wes for money they we can use to bolster defence and get a free replacement in McGregor then that's a great piece of business IMO

I'd take shagger back in a heartbeat.. He's a different class of goalkeeper to Wes.. Wes is average at best.. I'm sorry but he is.. Great news if true

McGregor will be the number 1, Wes is pish mate

Massive upgrade if true, no disrespect to Wes, but Shagger is worth 10-15 points a season easily.

Great news if true. Wes is a nice guy but McGregor is a huge step up and a great guy to have around as well.

That would really cheer me up at last a keeper who is world class again
