Scott Arfield signs for Rangers on four-year deal from Burnley

The former Falkirk midfielder has signed a four-year contract at Ibrox after leaving Burnley on a high following their seventh-place finish in the Premier League.

Arfield made a decision to leave Burnley as his contract came to an end with the prospect of a new challenge under England and Liverpool legend Gerrard too tempting to turn down.

Rangers are expected to add several new players this summer, with Arfield the first of many. It's been in the pipeline for a long time and I'm looking forward to it now.

"As soon as the interest came in it was something I wanted to go for", said the midfielder.

Arfield broke through at the Bairns in 2007, playing 122 times there across three seasons, with his spell there including a run to the 2009 Scottish Cup Final, where they were defeated by the Gers. "When a club of this magnitude comes in for you it is a no brainer".

Arfield's excitement intensified when he discovered Steven Gerrard was going to be his new manager.

"I'm excited to work with Steven Gerrard - if you don't get excited by that you shouldn't walk through the front door".

"I was lucky enough to play against him (Gerrard) and it was one of the highlights of my career".

Arfield, who was born in Scotland but plays his global football for Canada, where his father is from, made almost 200 appearances for Burnley.

Gerrard added: "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, ofcourse, as we look to build towards our Europa League campaign which will start inearly July.
