"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".

"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.
