Currently, the 39-year-old Allan McGregor is the undisputed first-choice goalkeeper of Rangers FC. McGregor began his career with the Light Blues and worked his way up through the youth ranks before making his senior debut on 24 February 2002 at the age of 20. After spending 11 years with the senior team, he left Scotland in 2012. Rangers betting always had their goalkeepers on the top selected players.
Then, Allan McGregor rejoined the club on a two-year deal in May 2018 and extended his contract in 2019 until 2021. So, his current deal will finish this season, and The Light Blues will be looking to sign a young goalkeeper who can consistently serve the team as Allan did for many years.
Like Allan McGregor, there were some gaolkeepers who served the team with loyalty for many years. Let’s see who all are those keepers who were once the best shot-stoppers in football:
Even now, when we ask a Rangers fan who is the best gaolkeeper, they will only have one answer. It’s Andy Goram. ‘The Goalie,’ as he was nicknamed, was Rangers’ first choice between the posts for five of the club’s historic nine-in-a-row run in the 1990s and was inducted into the Scottish Football Hall of Fame in 2010. In a poll in 2001 of Rangers fans, Goram was voted Rangers’ greatest ever goalkeeper.
Goram appeared in 43 international matches for Scotland and was selected for their squads at the 1986 and 1990 World Cups, UEFA Euro 1992 and UEFA Euro 1996. After his time with Rangers, he played for many clubs, most notably at Motherwell and a brief loan spell at Manchester United.
Stefan Klos was a German goalkeeper who started his top tier career with Borussia Dortmund. After spending eight years with Dortmund, he joined Rangers in 1998. He was nicknamed as ‘Der Goalie’.
He won four Scottish Premierships with Rangers, and he left the club in 2007 after spending eight years with the club. He was one of the highest-earning players in all of European football at that time. Rangers won the treble in 2002–03, with Klos as the starter. He was appointed team captain in July 2004
Chris Woods is currently the goalkeeping coach of the Scotland National Team. Graeme Souness signed him in 1986. Chris Woods made an immediate impact at Rangers, winning a league and cup double in his first season with the club.
The England international set a new British record after going close to 1,200 minutes without conceding between November 1986 and January 1987. With Rangers, he made 173 appearances from 1986 to 1991.
