Burnley midfielder Scott Arfield on brink of Rangers move

Arfield was out of contract at Burnley this summer.

"As soon as the interest came in it was something I wanted to go for", said the midfielder.

He could face former club Burnley in the Europa League next season.

Having played in the Scottish league with Falkirk between 2007 and 2010, it is believed that Arfield will not struggle to adapt to his new surroundings.

New Rangers manager Steven Gerrard says Celtic have reigned supreme in Scotland "for far too long". 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.

"I'm excited to work with Gerrard". It has given a boost to the whole game in this country. "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".

There's immediately been plenty of speculation as to who Gerrard's first addition would be, with several of his former Liverpool colleagues tipped to make the switch to Ibrox.

"Steven Gerrard will obviously be looking to bring in his own backroom team at Rangers, but I wonder if he might consider keeping Jimmy Nicholl around the place", McCulloch 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.

'It is pleasing also that we have been able to start our rebuilding process so quickly after the end of the season.

'Scott is the first one in and I look forward to working with him and others who will be coming in to strengthen the squad.' He added.
