Steven Gerrard announces Premier League regular as his first Rangers signing

Steven Gerrard is hoping that he take some of Jürgen Klopp's attacking football to Rangers when he officially takes up his position as their manager in the summer. 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. Arfield's grandfather was in the military and was briefly stationed in Canada.

Arfield, who was born in Scotland but plays his global football for Canada, where his father is from, made almost 200 appearances for Burnley. He called the worldwide experience "invaluable".

How big a role Arfield can play in that remains to be seen. "So I am looking forward to that", he said in an interview after being announced as a Rangers player.

Rangers have climbed back into the top level in Scotland after financial problems that resulted in the historic club having to drop down to the fourth tier of the Scottish league system for the 2012-13 season.

Rangers finished third in this season's Scottish Premiership after ending their campaign with a 5-5 draw at Hibernian on Sunday.
