Allan James McGregor (born 31 January 1982) is a Scottish association footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Rangers and the Scotland national team. McGregor is currently Rangers' longest-serving player, having been a professional at the club since 2001.

A product of Rangers youth development, McGregor made his first team debut in February 2002 in a Scottish Cup match against Forfar Athletic and was later loaned out to St. Johnstone and Dunfermline Athletic, before becoming a regular first team player at the start of the 2006-07 season. McGregor has made over 200 appearances for Rangers, winning 11 major honours in the process, including a hat-trick of league titles in 2009, 2010 and 2011, three Scottish Cups and five Scottish League Cups.

McGregor made his international debut against Austria on 30 May 2007 and has 14 international caps. McGregor was suspended for two weeks by his club, and the Scottish Football Association said that McGregor would never play for Scotland again, after multiple breaches of squad discipline following Scotland's 3 0 defeat to the Netherlands on 28 March 2009. The following year, McGregor's lifetime ban from international football was overturned by Scotland manager Craig Levein.
