McGregor agrees Besiktas deal
Scotland goalkeeper Allan McGregor has agreed to join Besiktas on a two-year deal.
The former Rangers number one reached an agreement with the Turkish outfit after undergoing medical tests in Istanbul.
The club confirmed on its official website: "According to a club statement issued by Besiktas Football Ventures, former Glasgow Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor has agreed to a two-year deal with the Eagles."
Speaking in an interview with BJK TV, shown on STV, McGregor said: "It's a big club, with a big tradition.
"Supposedly, they have great fans and a lot of noise in the stadium so I'm very excited.
"Every time I play, I don't like losing, which is a good thing to have.
"I'll just give my all for the team and hopefully I can do my best."
The 30-year-old had been looking for a new club after leaving Rangers when they were consigned to liquidation.
The Rangers newco, who McGregor declined to join, will dispute his right to move but the goalkeeper's former team-mates who followed the same route have been granted temporary transfer certificates by FIFA ahead of arbitration over possible compensation.
Like Rangers, Besiktas failed to meet financial criteria to gain a UEFA licence and could not take their place in this season's Europa League.
