MAC POISED FOR GERS RETURN

0

ALLAN McGREGOR is on the brink of a sensational return to Rangers.

The Scotland keeper, 36, has already had talks with the Ibrox side as he runs down his Hull City contract.

McGregor, who quit the club in 2012 for a spell with Turkish outfit Besiktas, returned to Britain in a £1.5million move to the Championship outfit in 2013.

He is poised to come back and his former club hope to make an announcement in the bear future.

The veteran played in Scotland’s two friendlies against Costa Rica and Hungary last month while Celtic’s Craig Gordon rested with a knee injury.

Meanwhile, Wes Foderingham is almost certainly OUT of Rangers’ game at Parkhead on Sunday where Celtic can clinch their seventh successive title.

The Gers No.1 is unlikely to recover from a persistent shoulder problem that sidelined him at the weekend when Jak Alnwick took over in the 2-1 win against Hearts.

Under-pressure caretaker boss Graeme Murty will be left with only untried youngster Liam Kelly as his back-up shotstopper on the subs’ bench against a Hoops team that requires only three points to clinch the flag.

Foderingham will not be risked as he attempts to overcome the injury which has troubled him for most of the campaign and could, in fact, keep him out for the remaining four matches of the season.

The Englishman has missed only one of the last 10 games against the champions – last season’s 1-0 League Cup semi-final defeat when Matt Gilks was in the No.1 position.

Murty also has a worry over Portuguese veteran central defender Bruno Alves, who is struggling after pulling up during the club’s 4-0 hammering from Brendan Rodgers’ side in the Scottish Cup semi-final earlier this month.
