The 28-year-old, whose deal at Ibrox includes the option for a further year, becomes Rangers' second signing of the summer following the arrival of striker Kenny Miller last week.

McGregor said: "I am absolutely delighted to get the chance to join Rangers. This is one of the biggest clubs in world football and I can't wait to play at Ibrox in front of so many supporters, it really is a dream come true.

"I will work hard and do everything I can to help this club get back to the top of Scottish football and I am sure next season's Championship campaign will be a successful one."

McGregor spent four years with St Mirren in the Scottish Premiership after leaving Cowdenbeath in 2010.

Rangers manager Ally McCoist said: "Darren is a player we have always liked and appreciated as he is a wholehearted, committed and solid defender.

"He is also very quick and we feel he will be a good acquisition. I watched St Mirren a number of times last year and he was a very consistent performer.

"He has good experience and it is a tremendous opportunity for Darren to kick on and progress his career."

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
