Video: Allan McGregor is Too Modest in Interview After Villarreal Display

Allan McGregor was a bit too modest in his interview following Rangers‘ 0-0 draw with Villarreal last night.

The Gers goalkeeper produced a man of the match display as they held the Spaniards to a draw to continue their pursuit of a Europa League last 32 place.

Unfortunately for Steven Gerrard’s men, they had Daniel Candeias controversially sent off towards the end of the first half and had to play the remainder of the game with 10.

But they held on for a valuable point – thanks in a large part to the quality of McGregor in goals.

The Ibrox stopper denied Toko Ekambi with two fine saves in the first half and looked assured with anything else that came his way in the match.

Yet after Gerrard described the saves as ‘world class’, McGregor was a bit more modest post-match:

Thanks to McGregor, Rangers now have a chance of reaching the knockout phase if they beat Rapid Vienna away in the final group game.

They’ve already beaten the Austrian team in the group, winning 3-1 at Ibrox back in October.
