Scott Arfield joins Rangers as Steven Gerrard's first signing

The midfielder has signed a four-year deal at Ibrox after completing a medical this morning.

The 29-year-old has spent the last five years at Turf Moor, with 22 goals being scored in 193 appearances in all competitions.

However, ex-Rangers captain McCulloch believes keeping Nicholl at Ibrox in some way would be beneficial to Gerrard, as the Northern Irishman knows what it means to be a "Ranger" after two spells with the club as a player.

Arfield said: "As soon as the interest came in, it was something I wanted to go for". A left footer who stands at 5ft 11in (according to Transfermarkt), Arfield can play either in central midfield or on the left flank, and he will bring class and bite to a midfield that is in need of reinforcing after once again falling short in the marquee matches this season.

Rangers supporters will be hoping Arfield is the first of many signings in a much-needed squad overhaul at the club. If you don't get excited by it you shouldn't walk through the front door. "With Gary McAllister as well, it's exciting and I'm so happy to be part of it".

Although she has yet to comment on the accusations publicly, it seems the two will work things out. Since the baby's birth the couple has been seen out to lunch and taking a walk together.

It was fortunate enough to play against him.

"I'll listen to everything he and has staff have to say and hopefully take my game to the next level".

Capped 12 times by Canada at full worldwide, it seemed Arfield would represent his country of birth after representing Scotland as an Under-19, Under-21, and B global.

"I said cheerio to them yesterday but I think I'll be seeing them in three weeks or something", said Arfield. "It was the ideal time to leave".
