The centre-back has two years left on his deal but with Goldson largely viewed as a back-up at the Falmer Stadium and Rangers are hopeful he'll be allowed to leave for a reasonable price.

Instead, the 36-year-old has chose to return to Rangers six years after quitting in the wake of the club's financial meltdown.

Rangers yesterday announced the signing of Scott Arfield from Burnley as the first import of Steven Gerrard's reign a Ibrox.

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

And McGregor admitted that it was a simple decision to return to Scotland after five years with Hull and a spell in Turkey.

The 35-cap Scotland global won three league titles, a hat-trick of Scottish Cups and five League Cup titles during his first Rangers stint.

Rangers are expected to make more signings over the course of the summer transfer window as they bid to hit the ground running under Gerrard, with the Europa League qualifiers to come in July.

McGregor said: "I can't keep the smile off my face".

He added: "I started training here when I was 12 years old and it's incredible to be back".

McGregor, who was named as Hull's player of the year last season, previously made 278 appearances for Rangers across 10 years before leaving the club in 2012.

The ambition for Rangers next season will be to close the gap to Celtic and key to that will be improving the club's home form.
