Scotland goalkeeper Allan McGregor is returning to Rangers on a two-year deal after rejecting new terms at Hull City.

Allan McGregor has finalised his move back to Rangers.

The 36-year-old knocked back Tigers boss Nigel Adkins' offer of a new deal and has now rejoined the Gers six years after quitting in the wake of the club's financial meltdown.

Rangers yesterday announced the signing of Scott Arfield from Burnley as the first import of Steven Gerrard's reign a Ibrox.

"He is vastly experienced goalkeeper who we feel can add to the options available to us now", Gerrard told the club website.

Instead, the 36-year-old has chose to return to Rangers six years after quitting in the wake of the club's financial meltdown. It's obvious that he is below the required level in the Premier League and it was hard to judge how he would have done in the club's promotion winning campaign a year ago as he underwent heart surgery and missed a lot of action. He played for Dunfermline and St Johnstone on loan during his time at in Scotland but he then went on to play in over 200 Rangers games during his time at the club.

"When the chance came, it was an absolute no-brainer, so I'm buzzing to be back", he told Rangers TV.

He said: "I started training here when I was 12 years old and used to come through the main stand maybe twice a week".

In his first spell with Rangers he won 11 major trophies, including a hat-trick of league titles in 2009, 2010 and 2011. Every game is an opportunity for three points, and if you keep doing that and doing that, as we have seen before, that's what wins you titles.
