Goalkeeper Allan McGregror has reportedly re-signed for Rangers from Hull City – but there has been no confirmation five days later.
The Times claimed last Saturday the Glasgow giants have already secured the capture of McGregor, 36, on a free transfer six years after quitting the club.
But, there has been no announcement from the player or either of the clubs, and Hull manager Nigel Adkins suggested today (Thursday) that the veteran could still remain at the Championship outfit.
The highly-experienced shot stopper left Rangers as a free agent when they went into administration in 2012, having made 250 appearances for the club.
Football Insider verdict:
Landing one new player before mid-May would be pretty nifty work by recruitment chief Mark Allen, but securing two would be a serious statement of intent. Not enough to have Celtic running for cover, certainly, but adding the capture of 6ft 3in McGregor to the already-agreed one of Scott Arfield would be sound business. Both are both proven performers who have delivered in the Premier League and also know the Scottish game inside out. This appears to be key criteria for Allen ahead of the window as he rights the wrongs of years of wretched recruitment spearheaded by Mark Warburton, Frank McPartland and Pedro Caixinha. The director of football secured some smart deals in January and appears to know how to operate a shoestring budget. Rangers hope the combination of Allen and new manager Steven Gerrard will prove a solid foundation for transfers this summer. It is odd that the Times claim that McGregor has already signed, while Adkins thinks the keeper can still remain at Hull. If Rangers can push the deal over the line, it will make a huge bit of difference.
