Rangers have completed the signing of 25-year-old midfielder Ryan Jack on a three-year deal.

The former Aberdeen man becomes Pedro Caixinha's second signing of the window following the arrival of Portuguese defender Bruno Alves.

Jack made 250 appearances, scoring 11 goals, for Aberdeen after coming through their youth system and making his debut in September 2010.

He was appointed club captain by Dons manager Derek McInnes at the beginning of the 2015-16 season.

He moves to Ibrox on a free transfer following the end of his contract at Pittodrie.

Caixinha told the club website: "I believe 25 is a great age for him to come here. He had three years as captain of Aberdeen and has that experience, he also understands what it means to represent Rangers."

Jack said: "I've had a lot of experiences as a football player and to captain Aberdeen was a huge honour.

"I'm thankful to Aberdeen for that and to Derek McInnes but I just felt it was time for a fresh challenge and it's one at Rangers that I'm really looking forward to.

"From what I've heard the club are making a few signings and bringing in a good calibre of player, so it's exciting times and I know there are really good players already here as well."

Jack played his last game for Aberdeen in Saturday's Scottish Cup final defeat against Celtic and was in tears at full-time.

He started the season as captain but, due to injury and the fact he did not sign a new deal with the club, Graeme Shinnie wore the armband at Hampden last weekend.
