Rangers supporters will be hoping Arfield is the first of many signings in a much-needed squad overhaul at the club.

Rangers have completed their first signing in the Steven Gerrard era, nabbing Scott Arfield from Burnley on a free transfer.

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.

Arfield revealed interest from Rangers first materialised several months ago.

'When you look at the style of football that Jurgen Klopp plays, I think every fan in the world loves watching that. "With Gary McAllister as well, it's exciting and I'm so happy to be part of it".

"I'm excited to work with Gerrard, if you don't get excited by it you shouldn't walk through the front door. When you go down there, you want to play against the best, and he is one of the top two or three in my generation".

Gerrard has already brought in Scott Arfield from Burnley and more players are likely to follow the midfielder.

When asked about his memories of facing Gerrard, he said: "Getting beat, getting overrun, and I remember coming off the pitch thinking I'm not as good as I first thought".

'It is just an absolute dream, ' Arfield said.

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

Gerrard will initially look to make an impact in the Europa League with Rangers, knowing that steering the Gers through qualifying and to the group stage would be a big early feather in his cap.
