Confirmed: Ex-Rangers defender Darren McGregor completes Hibernian move

Rangers FC Stands

The former Gers man has sealed a move to his boyhood club.

Former Rangers defender Darren McGregor has completed his move to Hibs, as confirmed on the club's official site, after his shock Ibrox departure.

The 30-year old – who was named Gers’ player of the year last season – left the club by ‘mutual consent’ yesterday and now joins the Hibees on a two-year deal.

He failed to feature for new boss Mark Warburton in any games this season and was not viewed as a part of the former Brentford manager’s plans.

McGregor has now finalised a move to the club he supported as a child, as revealed by his quotes prior to joining Rangers last year.

“I was from Leith, a Hibs area, so I grew up a fan and went to games regularly until I was about 12 or 13. I’ve followed them since and always look for their results," said the Hibs new boy.

Warburton will be hoping his decision to cast out the club’s player of the year does not come back to bite him as the fight for promotion hots up.

The Gers emerged with a slender one-nil victory against the Hibees on Saturday to maintain their 100% start, but failed to produce the type of performance Warburton has already come to demand.

Hibs, on the other hand, will be buoyed the way they competed at Ibrox and with the additional help of Darren McGregor now confirmed, their prospects start to look even brighter.
