JOE GARNER has called time on his Rangers career leaving for Ipswich Town in a cut price deal.

The striker has joined Ipswich on a three-year contract following a torrid time at Ibrox.

Garner arrived for a fee in the region of £1.4million from Preston North End; the striker has followed Clint Hill and Philippe Senderos out the door of the cash-strapped club and back down south to Mick McCarthy’s Ipswich.

A one time fan-favourite for his aggressive approach to games, Garner has scored 10 goals in 34 games for the light-blues this season.

Pedro Caixinha will be happy to cash in the 29-year-old as he was not part of the Portuguese manager’s plans for the new season.

McCarthy will hope that he will get the former League One Player of the Year to boost his side towards a place in the dreamland of the Premier League.

Caixinha will hope that he can off-load a few more of the Mark Warburton signings over the next few weeks to help him fund his re-building programme.

Warburton, now manager at Nottingham Forest, is set to sign striker Jason Cummings from Hibs over the weekend.

Garner will be remembered at Ibrox for the fans dedicating their version of Glad All Over to the player and also waiting in Accident and Emergency on Hogmanay after hurting his shoulder in the 2-1 home defeat to Celtic.
