Hull City have completed the signing of midfielder Greg Docherty from Rangers for an undisclosed fee.

Docherty made just 19 appearances for Rangers after joining his boyhood club from Hamilton in January 2018.

He was not part of Steven Gerrard's long-term plans, spending time on loan in the last two seasons at Shrewsbury, where he was named the club's player of the year, and then Hibernian from January this year until the league shutdown in March.

Docherty becomes Hull's fourth summer signing after their relegation from the Championship last season.

"We're delighted to have added Greg to the group because he'll bring a different dynamic to our midfield," Hull boss Grant McCann told the club's website.

"He's got great energy, has the ability to go from box-to-box and boasts a wide passing range. On top of that, he'll provide a real threat in the final third of the pitch with his ability to both score and create goals.

"Despite only being 23 years of age, he's very level headed and mature. I'm excited to start working with Greg on the back of the conversations I've had with him over the past couple of days, which have been really encouraging. He's coming here with a real hunger and desire to want to show people how good he is."
