Scott Arfield has signed for Rangers on a four-year deal from Burnley.
The midfielder flew into Glasgow on Monday morning to finalise his move to Ibrox after spending five years at Turf Moor, and the transfer was confirmed at midday.
Rangers' new boss Steven Gerrard said in a statement: "I am delighted to have added Scott Arfield to the squad for next season. He is a talented and competitive midfielder who has competed at a high level in the English Premiership and internationally for Canada.
"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."
Arfield, who is Gerrard's first signing at Rangers, says he is excited by the prospect of working with the former Liverpool and England captain, but admits he is yet to speak with his new boss.
"When a club of this magnitude comes in for you it is a no brainer," said Arfield.
"I'm excited to work with Gerrard, if you don't get excited by it you shouldn't walk through the front door. It has gave a boost to the whole game in this country."
When asked if he had communicated with Gerrard, he added: "No, not yet. It's been in the pipeline for a long time and I'm looking forward to it now.
