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

Rangers: Steven Gerrard out to emulate Jurgen Klopp style at Ibrox

Gerrard has already started the process of building his Rangers squad after being confirmed as new Gers manager ten days ago.

It's claimed Rangers have offered £4m to Fenerbahce, and a decision is yet to be made on whether a move will go ahead.

Scott Arfield feels he left Scotland a "wee boy" and returns a "natural leader" who is ready to meet the expectations of playing for Rangers.

However, Arfield is out of contract this summer and after receiving an approach from Rangers, the Canadian has opted to make the switch North of the border.

The midfielder has signed a four-year deal at Ibrox after completing a medical this morning.

"I think with the size of this club you know how big it's going to be and I'm here now to try and implement that in the dressing room".

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

"If you don't get excited by it, you shouldn't walk through the front door", he said.

It was fortunate enough to play against him.

"He is one of the top three players of my generation".

So, who else will be on Gerrard's hitlist in terms of signing targets?

'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.

Arfield knows Scottish football well, having lined out for Falkirk between 2007 and 2010, as well as representing the national team at underage level before switching his allegiances to Canada. 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.
