Scott Arfield has become Steven Gerrard’s first Rangers signing after arriving from Burnley on a four-year deal.

Rangers announced on Monday morning that the 29-year-old had become the first signing of the Gerrard era at Ibrox.

“I am delighted to have added Scott Arfield to the squad for next season,” Gerrard said.

“He is a talented and competitive midfielder who has competed at a high level in the English Premiership and internationally for Canada.”

Arfield has 12 caps for Canada, and has been with Burnley since 2013.

He moved to Turf Moor from Huddersfield, where he was part of the Terriers team which won promotion to the Championship in 2012.

Arfield came through the ranks at Falkirk, and played 122 games for the Bairns across three seasons.

Gerrard added: “It’s pleasing also that we have been able to start our rebuilding process so quickly after the end of the season. There is much more to be done of course as we look to build towards our Europa League campaign which will start in early July.

“Scott is the first one in and I look forward to working with him and the others who will be coming in to strengthen the squad.”

Arfield was due to address the media at an Ibrox press conference on Monday afternoon.
