Allan McGregor the Toast of the Rangers Support After ‘Sensational’ Villarreal Display

Allan McGregor the Toast of the Rangers Support After ‘Sensational’ Villarreal Display

Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor is the toast of the club’s support tonight after a top-class display against Villarreal in the Europa League.

Playing against one of La Liga’s high-profile sides, it was always going to take a lot for Steven Gerrard’s men to get the win they craved and, in fact, they had their keeper to thank for helping them hold onto a 0-0 draw.

The Scotland No.1 pulled off a string of impressive stops, denying Ekambi twice, Moreno and Funes Mori, as well as others throughout a high-octane 90 minutes at Ibrox.

It was a battling and committed performance from all of the Rangers players but McGregor is the man taking the most of the plaudits from fans:

Rangers now probably need to win away to Rapid Vienna – a team they beat 3-1 earlier in the competition – on the final match-day, but with McGregor in this kind of form, who’s to say how far they can go?

What did you make of his showing?
