Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern will be encouraging manager Steven Gerrard to continue at the rate he is going with his transfer business as they confirm another signing.
The club’s official website has confirmed that the Gers have sealed a permanent switch for Jamie Murphy from Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion. The winger joined his boyhood team on an initial loan deal from the Seagulls in January, but has now put pen-to-paper on a three-year contract after impressing during his temporary stint north of the border.
The 28-year-old becomes Gerrard’s third signing already at Ibrox, having not officially taken charge just yet, and is continuing to show his intentions in rebuilding the Rangers squad into a force that can compete against Brendan Rodgers and Old Firm rivals Celtic for Scottish honours next term.
Landlord’s Verdict: The Rangers fans in the Tavern will be pleased that the club have secured a permanent move for the winger, having featured for the club in 19 matches and netting five times.
The former Motherwell and Sheffield United winger had made an impressive start to life with the Light Blues, and the locals will no doubt look for him to carry on with the form he showed during the final stages of the season next time round.
Joining Scott Arfield and Allan McGregor on permanent deals, Murphy becomes Gerrard’s third big signing in his efforts to change the team, and the former Liverpool star is certainly showing no signs of slowing down as his summer overhaul continues to gather pace.
Rangers fans… what do you make of the news? Let us know!
