The midfielder has signed a four-year deal at Ibrox after completing a medical this morning. It's been in the pipeline for a long time and I'm looking forward to it now.

"I think with the size of this club you know how big it's going to be and I'm here now to try and implement that in the dressing room". I've been supported by fantastic coaches who have helped me grow and educated me in terms of getting used to being on the pitch on a daily basis.

"I have been down there for a number of years and I felt I had to come back up to a club that is only going to go on to better things".

Arfield said: "As soon as the interest came in, it was something I wanted to go for".

However it seems that Dave King could have a bit more money to play around with than first though as the Gers have been claimed to have tabled yet another seven-figure bid, this time for Fenerbahce defender Martin Skrtel.

Former Burnley midfielder and Canada global Scott Arfield has joined Rangers.

'It is pleasing also that we have been able to start our rebuilding process so quickly after the end of the season.

Arfield, 29, is expected to be the first of many arrivals as the Liverpool legends begins his rebuild of the squad in what is certain to be a hectic summer of transfer activity, in and out of the club.

The former Falkirk midfielder makes the switch after five seasons with Burnley, helping them to promotion and European football for the first time in over 50 years.

Rangers have won a record 54 Scottish league titles but are still recovering from the financial problems that saw them reformed in the bottom tier of Scottish football in 2012.
