HIBS today completed the signing of defender Darren McGregor – just a day after he was released by Championship rivals Rangers.
The 30-year-old – the Ibrox club’s Player of the Year last season – has penned a two-year contract with the Easter Road club.
McGregor, released from his contract after falling out of favour under Gers boss Mark Warburton, today expressed his delight at signing for his boyhood heroes.
Speaking to Hibs website, McGregor said: “I’m absolutely delighted to sign for Hibs – it’s a dream come true for me to play for the club.
“I’ve supported Hibs my whole life, so to now get the opportunity to sign for the club is brilliant.
“I enjoyed my time with Rangers and now that has ended I’m really excited about starting the next chapter of my career at my club and helping Hibs to challenge for promotion.”
Head coach Alan Stubbs said: “We’re delighted to be able to welcome Darren into the group – his arrival provides real competition for places.
“He has always played well against us and he is strong, experienced player and a good professional.
“We’re always looking to strengthen the squad and the arrival of Darren will do exactly that.
“The fact that he is also a lifelong Hibs supporter is great and this move provides him with the opportunity to fulfil the dream of playing for his team.”
