He explained that the first moves to bring him back to Govan were made "two or three weeks" ago through John Brown, now a Rangers scout.

Gerrard was a victor and leader on the pitch as a player and McGregor is confident he will bring those attributes to his first managerial role with the Light Blues. "I think it is a coup to land Steven Gerrard".

"Hopefully it will be a good partnership and I heard the coaching staff he is bringing are very good so that can only be a positive".

Gerrard said of McGregor: 'He is a vastly experienced goalkeeper who we feel can add to the options available to us now. 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's likely to be a hugely popular signing with the club's supporters.

McGregor will now battle with Wes Foderingham and Jak Alnwick to become the number 1 between the sticks for the Scottish giants.

In addition, the goalkeeper had a spell on loan with Cardiff City during his time at Hull.

He described the lure of returning to Rangers, where he believes he has unfinished business, as too strong to resist.

The goalkeeper won eleven major titles with Rangers including league titles in 2009, 2010 and 2011. The two clubs also have some kind of working relationship between them already with Jamie Murphy on loan at Ibrox from Brighton. "To be back is incredible".

The 36-year old played a key role in the The Tigers squad in the 2017/18 season, featured in all 46 league games for Nigel Adkin's side.

"We need to make this place (Ibrox) a fortress, where nobody wants to come". You need to win games, no matter who you're playing.

McGregor caught up with RangersTV after signing his contract this afternoon at Ibrox and you can see a trailer FREE above then watch the interview in full on RangersTV HERE.

Edinburgh-born McGregor admitted he wondered whether he would ever get the chance to return to Rangers.

'It came as a surprise.
