Despite Rangers' 2-0 defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League this evening, we need to show goalkeeper Allan McGregor some respect for an incredible performance.
Goals from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Mohamed Salah in either half gave Liverpool the victory at Anfield, which has seen them consolidate second place in Group A.
Jurgen Klopp's side were on the front foot for most of the contest, finding themselves up against a motivated McGregor in the Rangers net.
Liverpool registered nine shots on target but didn't score from open play. McGregor denied Darwin Nunez several times before producing a sensational save from Diogo Jota in the second half.
Jota saw his shot tipped over by the 40-year-old and he was in disbelief, as were the entire home end.
Fans have reacted to McGregor's showing on the big stage, claiming he could be the best British goalkeeper in the world.
One person commented: "It’s Allan McGregor versus the rest of the world."
Another said: "McGregor moves like prime Gianluigi Buffon on European nights."
A third tweeted: "Some of these saves are world class, he can't retire we need to clone him."
While another put: "Allan McGregor is 40 going on 21."
Liverpool opened the scoring seven minutes in after Nunez won a free-kick just outside the penalty area.
Alexander-Arnold stepped up to whip it past a diving McGregor for his second goal of the season. It's exactly what the 23-year-old needed after a tricky few weeks.
The Reds won a penalty early in the second half via Luis Diaz, who went down after finding himself between John Lundstram and Leon King.
Salah fired home to put the home side in the driving seat. Rangers did rally late, with Kostas Tsimikas clearing a shot off the line, but it was too late.
Liverpool are now three points clear of Ajax following their 6-1 thrashing at the hands of Napoli elsewhere in the group.
Rangers, meanwhile, are bottom without a single win so far. The two sides will meet again at Ibrox in eight days' time.
