STEVEN GERRARD has admitted he is delighted with his first signing for Rangers after Scott Arfield agreed a four-year deal yesterday.

The Scots-born Canadian international midfielder quit Burnley at the end of his contract to sign for the Ibrox outfit.

Arfield, 29, is expected to be the first of many arrivals as the Liverpool legends begins his rebuild of the squad in what is certain to be a hectic summer of transfer activity, in and out of the club.

He said: “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 Premier League and internationally for Canada.

“It’s pleasing also 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.
“Scott is the first one in and I look forward to working with him and the others who will be coming in to strengthen the squad.”

Gerrard is still hopeful of landing former Gers keeper Allan McGregor from Hull City.
