Rangers keeper fuming

Rangers keeper Allan McGregor has slammed Alex McLeish for signing Manchester City shot-stopper Ronald Waterreus.
McGregor was in goal for Rangers' 3-0 win over Livingston on Saturday, and had eyed an extended run in the side due to Stefan Klos' long-term injury.
The German keeper is out for the rest of the season with a cruciate knee ligament injury, prompting McLeish to sign a new shot-stopper.
34-year-old Waterreus has arrived from Manchester City, and McGregor is furious that he has not been trusted with the number one spot in place of Klos.
"I am raging and rightly so," McGregor told the Scottish Daily Mirror. "I feel that Rangers don't have any confidence in me.
"My mind has been buzzing since I met the new goalkeeper at training on Monday.
"The club say they want an experienced goalkeeper. I went on loan to St Johnstone, got experience and have come back a better player.
"Now, with Ronald Waterreus coming in, it looks as though they think I don't have enough experience.
"I think I am just a cheap option for Rangers behind Stefan Klos.
"I might play against Hibs next week but I very much doubt it and I am hurting."
