Allan McGregor has opted to sign for Glasgow Rangers after agreeing terms with the Ibrox club earlier today.
The 36-year-old goalkeeper had been offered a contract to stay with the Tigers beyond the expiry of his current deal this summer, but he has taken the decision to return to his homeland and rejoin the side that he played more than 250 games for between 2002 and 2012.
McGregor leaves having spent almost five years with the Tigers. Signed by Steve Bruce in July 2013 ahead of the Club’s return to the Premier League, he had a memorable first season which started with a penalty save from Chelsea’s Frank Lampard on debut and ended with an appearance in the FA Cup Final against Arsenal – the latter coming after recovering from serious kidney damage which had hospitalised him just two months earlier.
He was also a key member of the squad that won promotion in 2016, although injury ruled him out of the Play-Off Final that year, and in total he made 147 appearances during his time in East Yorkshire.
We wish Allan all the very best for the future and thank him for his service over the last five years.
