Steven Gerrard secures second Rangers signing

Allan Mc Gregor ‘buzzing’ after sealing Rangers return

The Gers have already been busy recruiting players and have already brought in Scott Arfield and Allan McGregor from Burnley and Hull City respectively.

The 33-year-old also has worldwide experience, having racked up 97 caps for Slovakia.

McGregor, who has 38 worldwide caps, moved to Hull after a year in the Turkish top flight.

Rangers have already seen David Bates agree to join Hamburg on a free transfer this summer and with periodical doubts over Bruno Alves' future, Gerrard may need to bring in a central defender.

He played all 46 league games as the Tigers finished 18th.

The veteran goalkeeper has signed a two-year contract at Ibrox Stadium to become manager Steven Gerrard's second signing.

The vaccine, from US -based pharmaceutical firm Merck, is unlicensed but has been shown to be highly effective against Ebola. It involves vaccinating voluntary contacts, contacts of those contacts and health care and other front-line workers.

McGregor started his career at Ibrox and had loan spells with St Johnstone and Dunfermline Athletic before becoming a first-team regular.

Rangers are expected to make a number of additions this summer as they look to try and compete with Old Firm rivals Glasgow Celtic and could also be expected to sell a number of key stars to fund those deals.

McGregor said: "I can't keep the smile off my face".

"I started training here when I was 12 years old and used to come through the main stand maybe twice a week". "We need to win games, it doesn't matter who you're playing, every game is an opportunity for three points".

The Premier League side turned down a £600,000 bid for the centre-back yesterday and are likely to want more than £1m. Let us know what you think.
