Scott Arfield's Burnley exit confirmed

Scott Arfield's Burnley exit confirmed

Arfield, who is Gerrard's first signing at Rangers, says he is excited by the prospect of working with the former Liverpool and England captain, but admits he is yet to speak with his new boss.

However, it's been confirmed that it will actually be Burnley midfielder Scott Arfield, as he has passed a medical after agreeing a four-year deal with the Glasgow giants.

Speaking to Sky Sports upon his arrival, he said: "It feels terrific to join Rangers".

"I think it's inevitable we are going to draw them, isn't it?"

"The manager has a fantastic way that he wants to play and hopefully I can take that on the pitch".

Gerrard said of the 29-year-old: "I am delighted to have added Scott Arfield to the squad for next season".

Arfield, who has not played since injuring his calf in February, paid tribute to Burnley who will play in the Europa League next season after finishing seventh in the English top-flight.

New Rangers manager Steven Gerrard hopes to emulate the style of football that Jurgen Klopp has established at Liverpool.

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

Capped 12 times by Canada at full worldwide, it seemed Arfield would represent his country of birth after representing Scotland as an Under-19, Under-21, and B global.

"There is much more to be done of course as we look to build towards our Europa League campaign which will start in early July".
