Scott Arfield: I left a boy but return a natural leader

Canadian worldwide midfielder Scott Arfield joined Rangers on a four-year deal on Monday to become Steven Gerrard's first signing as manager of the Glasgow giants.

He has signed a deal until 2022 with the Ibrox club, becoming the first arrival of the Steven Gerrard regime, and the new Gers manager was pleased to complete his first piece of business.

"I go this time with the supporters' blessing and everyone within the club's blessing because they see the opportunity, they see the size of Glasgow Rangers and how hard it would have been where I was to turn down".

"When a club of this magnitude comes in for you it's a no-brainer".

"Hopefully I can add a lot to the team, hopefully silverware and take us back to success".

'He is a talented and competitive midfielder who has competed at a high level in the English Premiership and internationally for Canada.

One should not be surprised if Gerrard is able to bring in one or two more established Premier League players to Rangers this summer.

The midfielder said farewell to Burnley yesterday as the Clarets ended the season with defeat to Bournemouth.

"As soon as interest came in, it was something I wanted to jump on", he said.

Arfield is the first major signing of the Gerrard era, but as the man himself admits, Rangers were interested in signing him several months ago - before Gerrard's appointment.

The former Liverpool midfielder is venturing into senior club management for the first time and Rangers fans may be set to get a similar style of football to the current Liverpool side.
