ALLAN McGREGOR has completed his Rangers return by accepting a two-year deal.

The 36-year-old Scotland international keeper was out of contract at Hull and knocked back the offer of an extension.

McGregor, who quit the Ibrox outfit six years in the midst of the club’s financial meltdown, said: “When the chance came, it was an absolute no-brainer, so I’m buzzing to be back.

“I started training here when I was 12 years old and used to come through the main stand maybe twice a week. To be back is incredible.”

The veteran shotstopper becomes Steven Gerrard’s second signing, following the four-year deal for Scott Arfield from Burnley.

The team lost seven Premiership games at home during the campaign as they finished in third place behind seven-in-a-row champions Celtic and Aberdeen who were runners-up for the fourth successive year.

McGregor added: “We need to make this place a fortress where nobody wants to come. We need to win games, it doesn’t matter who you’re playing, every game is an opportunity for three points.

“If you keep doing that, as we’ve seen before, that’s what wins you titles.”

Reports this morning have also linked new Gers boss Gerrard with his former England international team-mate Jermain Defoe, of Burnley, and his former Liverpool colleague Lucas Leiva, who is with Serie A outfit.
