Alexander gets a rare start in goal due to McGregor's injury


NEIL ALEXANDER will take his place between the posts tonight on his first European outing since the 2008 UEFA Cup final.

The goalkeeper has not played in continental competition since facing Zenit at the City of Manchester stadium almost three years ago.

He steps in for Allan McGregor with one eye on the League Cup final later this month where he will again replace McGregor.
