New Rangers manager Steven Gerrard hopes to establish the same brand of attacking football at the club as Juergen Klopp has brought to Liverpool and says Celtic's days of strolling to the Scottish Premiership title are over.

It's claimed Rangers have offered £4m to Fenerbahce, and a decision is yet to be made on whether a move will go ahead.

However, this season has seen him turn out only 18 times, with injury and Burnley's incredible form keeping him out of the starting line-up.

Arfield revealed interest from Rangers first materialised several months ago.

The midfielder has signed a four-year deal at Ibrox after completing a medical this morning.

"When a club of this magnitude comes in for you it is a no brainer", said Arfield in the statement. "We owe the courtesy to those players and to their football clubs to be speaking with them first".

How big a role Arfield can play in that remains to be seen.

"I'm really, really excited about it and so is Steven. I'm going with the club's support and the club's backing - and I'm really excited to get started".

"Even before the manager walks in with his No.2, Rangers have that appeal".

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

"He is one of the top three players of my generation".

Despite making his way through the youth ranks with the Scotland national team, Arfield represents Canada internationally, with his father having been born in Toronto.

"I said cheerio to them yesterday but I think I'll be seeing them in three weeks or something", said Arfield. "It was the flawless time to leave".
