Glasgow Rangers keeper Allan McGregor linked with a move to Beşiktaş
Beşiktaş have been linked with a move for Glasgow Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor.
The 30-year-old Scottish International's agent is reported to have flown to Istanbul to discuss a possible move with Beşiktaş officials.
McGregor has remained loyal to Rangers in the past, the Scottish International keeper accepted a 75 percent reduction in wages last season when the Gers were forced into administration due to financial difficulties.
However, the experienced goalkeeper has started voicing concerns about his future at the club following a further deterioration in the clubs finances.
McGregor told English newspaper, The Guardian, "If the worst came to the worst and I have to go, there would probably be regret.
"You just wish everything was perfect and none of this carry on was happening. But it is, and at this moment in time you don't know where it is going to go.
"I wanted to stay. I wanted to be in the mix to win things every season, which I thought I would, and I have been here since I was a young boy. I love the place, I know everybody. It feels comfortable and feels like home" he said.
The experienced keeper has spent six seasons at Rangers and has 21 Scottish caps.
Beşiktaş are looking to replace veteran keeper Rüştü Reçber who announced his retirement and the error prone Cenk Gönen.
The Istanbul club had the joint worst defensive record among the top-four clubs in the Turkish Super League last season, conceding 39 goals in the regular league campaign.
Beşiktaş finished last season in fourth position, however, will not be participating in the Europa League this year as UEFA suspended the Istanbul club from European competitions for one-year due to the club's ongoing financial problems.
Beşiktaş were investigated by UEFA for misleading the European football governing body in the second and third quarters of 2011, non-payment of players wages and ruled that they violated articles of the recently implemented financial fair play regulations.
