According to Sabah, Rangers’ Allan McGregor is the worst Besiktas goalkeeper in the past 20 years, closely followed by Liverpool loanee Loris Karius.
McGregor signed for the Super Lig side from Rangers in 2012 but returned to Ibrox when Steven Gerrard was installed as the club’s manager in 2018.
Karius is currently in his second season with the Black Eagles after he was loaned from Liverpool last year.
Sabah have analysed the goalkeepers who played for Besiktas in the last twenty years and they’ve based their findings on goals conceded per minute/game.
Karius has conceded one goal per 61 minutes since arriving at Besiktas just over 12 months ago, but Rangers’ Allan McGregor conceded a goal every 60 minutes whilst in Istanbul. Whilst in Turkey the Scot conceded 1.5 goals a game compared to the German’s 1.46, Murat Şahin was ranked third in the list.
The former Scotland international spent just one season with the Turkish side before his transfer to Hull City. He quickly established himself as Rangers’ No.1 when he re-joined the club in 2018 and was named in the PFA team of the season.
Karius has also come in for more criticism recently with his bad run of form, and his mistake in Slovakia last week proved costly for his team. The 25 year old’s loan spell at Besiktas will expire at the end of this season and his recent form could cost him a permanent move to the Super Lig.
However, with Adrian quickly establishing himself as an understudy to Alisson Becker, it seems the former Mainz goalkeeper doesn’t have any future at Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp.
