Former Rangers stopper Allan McGregor has completed a move to Besiktas, signing a two-year deal .
The deal was announced in Istanbul on Thursday afternoon.
“I spent 45 minutes to an hour with Allan last night,” the head of Besiktas’ football committee, Tamer Kiran, told STV. “He is a very good professional, very fit and experienced. We believe he will deliver our team’s objectives.”
Besiktas will now apply to the Turkish FA for an International Transfer Certificate for the transfer to go through.
McGregor was one of nine players who refused to transfer their contracts to Sevco Scotland Limited, exercising his right under TUPE regulations to terminate his deal.
The goalkeeper, who has 20 international caps and is Scotland’s number one, had been a Rangers player since 1998, making over 200 appearances for the Ibrox side and winning three league titles and eight cups.
