Rangers have confirmed the signing of former Liverpool defender Jon Flanagan on a free transfer.
The 25-year-old full-back has signed a two-year contract with the Scottish giants and he will be looking to kick-start his career in Scotland now.
Flanagan was released by Liverpool earlier this summer and Steven Gerrard has decided to give his old teammate a fresh start with Rangers.
The full-back has become Rangers’s seventh signing of the summer.
Flanagan came through Liverpool’s academy and he was a key player for the Reds during their 2013/14 title challenging season under the captainship of Steven Gerrard.
The 25-year-old can operate as a right back as well as a left back and he should prove to be a useful squad player for the Gers.
Rangers need more depth to compete with Celtic next season and these signings will certainly help. On a free transfer, Flanagan could certainly prove to be a quality signing.
Gerrard has already improved his defence with the signings of Nikola Katic and Connor Goldson.
Here is how the fans reacted to the transfer on Twitter.
Welcome to the Rangers family, joining the worlds most successful club brings a pressure like no other & more haters. Haters will always hate – it takes a strong person to acknowledge a mistake & work hard to put it right. Good luck ?⚪?????RTiD
