Rangers are proving their ambition with McBurnie, Marriott deals planned

The 29-year-old will be the first of potentially many names signing up to the club, with investment and expectation in high demand at the Ibrox club.

Midfielder Scott Arfield joined Scottish side Rangers from English Premier League club Burnley as a free agent on Monday, becoming manager Steven Gerrard's first signing at the Glasgow-based outfit.

Gerrard told the club's official website: "I am delighted to have added Scott Arfield to the squad for next season".

The Burnley midfielder is out of contract this summer and becomes new boss Steven Gerrard's first signing at Ibrox.

Last month, reports emerged that Rangers had made an approach for the Canadian global, whose contract at Turf Moor expires at the end of the season.




Mainly a central midfielder, Arfield has been with Burnley for the past five seasons and played a key role in helping them gain promotion to the Premier League and also to secure European football for next season.

On the worldwide front, he has been capped 12 times for Canada and has scored once.

"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". Especially as the club have made a serious statement of intent by paying what, by their standards, is huge money to secure Arfield's signature ahead of rival club.

"When you look at the style of football that Jurgen Klopp plays, I think every fan in the world loves watching that", Gerrard said. "[His appointment] has given a boost to the whole game in this country".
