SCOTLAND goalkeeper Allan McGregor has agreed to join Besiktas on a two-year deal.
The former Rangers No.1 one reached an agreement with the Turkish team after undergoing medical tests in Istanbul.
The club confirmed on its website: "According to a club statement issued by Besiktas Football Ventures, former Glasgow Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor has agreed to a two-year deal with the Eagles."
Speaking in an interview with BJK TV, McGregor said: "It's a big club, with a big tradition.
"Supposedly, they have great fans and a lot of noise in the stadium so I'm very excited.
"Every time I play, I don't like losing, which is a good thing to have.
"I'll just give my all for the team and hopefully I can do my best."
The 30-year-old had been looking for a new club after leaving Rangers when they were consigned to liquidation.
The Rangers newco, who McGregor declined to join, will dispute his right to move but the goalkeeper's former team-mates who followed the same route have been granted temporary transfer certificates by Fifa ahead of arbitration over possible compensation.
Like Rangers, Besiktas failed to meet financial criteria to gain a Uefa licence and could not take their place in this season's Europa League.
McGregor is the latest ex Ger after Kris Boyd and Kenny Miller to play in Turkey, with both of his old team-mates cutting their spells short.
