McGregor turns focus to Dons date

The Light Blues keeper was in outstanding form at Ibrox on Tuesday night even though a 2-0 defeat to Bundesliga side Stuttgart eliminated the Govan club from Europe altogether.[LNB]McGregor quickly turned his attention to Saturday's trip to Aberdeen, where the Gers have not won since Paul Le Guen's side recorded a 2-1 victory in December 2006.[LNB]Rangers have a one-point lead over Old Firm rivals Celtic at the top of the SPL with a game in hand and the Ibrox number one insists the focus has to turn to Pittodrie in order to at least maintain that advantage.[LNB]"We need to forget about Europe now," he told Rangers World.[LNB]"It's on the back-burner because we have to get ready for Aberdeen.[LNB]"We will certainly need to put on a better performance on Saturday and start with a better tempo and take the game to them.[LNB]"They are hard to beat up there because they always seem to raise their game when either of the Old Firm comes to town.[LNB]"I think they feel they have nothing to lose so they may as well have a go, so that makes it a difficult game.[LNB]"But we have got ourselves in front in the SPL and we want to stay there.[LNB]"It was a bit topsy-turvy last year but we want to stamp our authority on the league this year."[LNB]McGregor will take no comfort from his fine performance against Stuttgart.[LNB]As the Ibrox side ran out of steam towards the end of their third home defeat in Group G of their Champions League campaign, he made a string of saves to prevent a heavier defeat.[LNB]"I'm not really pleased that I made a few saves," McGregor said.[LNB]"It's about the team. I'm just gutted at the moment to be honest.[LNB]"I don't think we started that great and I felt we gave them too much respect.[LNB]"I thought we were quite poor in the first 15 minutes in terms of keeping the ball and passing it.[LNB]"They seemed to score just as we were getting into the game. It happens all the time with us.[LNB]"We seem to wait for something to happen to spark us into gear but we can't do that in these matches."[LNB][LNB][LNB]
