Steven Gerrard sign former teammate Jon Flanagan to Rangers

Scottish giants, Rangers have added to their squad Jon Flanagan as the seventh signign of the summer in a two year contract.

Liverpool announced players to leave the club this summer and the right-back is apparently one of them.

Rangers new manager Steven Gerrard, who has been doing all he can to rebuild the team following a poor form last season, had a major role to play in the arrival of the 25-year-old right back to the Ibrox Stadium, having played with Gerrard back in Liverpool before announcing retirment.

Flanagan speaking to Rangers TV said via BBC: “I’m delighted to be here.

“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.”

The 25-year-old defender was onnly able to manage just one appearance for the Reds last season, where he featured in a 2-0 defeat to Leicester City in the EFL Cup back in September, before joining Bolton Wanderers on loan for the remainder of the season.

Jon Flanagan will be joining up goalkeeper Allan McGregor, defenders Connor Goldson and Nikola Katic, midfielders Scott Arfield and Ovie Ejaria, and winger Jamie Murphy as the seventh signing this summer at the Ibrox Stadium.
