Done Deal: Steven Gerrard completes signing of Liverpool defender

Rangers have completed the signing of Jon Flanagan on a free transfer from Liverpool.

The right-back will link up with former Reds teammate Steven Gerrard, who took over as Gers manager this summer, at Ibrox.

“I’m delighted to be here,” Flanagan told Rangers TV.

“When I spoke to Stevie, it was a no-brainer for me. The size of the club, what the fans are about, I’m just delighted to be here and hopefully I can show all the fans what I’m about.

“I played with him at Liverpool for many years and he was a big part of me coming here.

“I know all about the club, but Stevie was a massive influence on me coming here as well.”

Flanagan has become Rangers’ seventh summer recruit, following the arrivals of Allan McGregor, Connor Goldson, Nikola Katic, Scott Arfield, Ovie Ejaria and Jamie Murphy.
