Scott Arfield arrived from Burnley on Monday, while Wednesday saw goalkeeper Allan McGregor return to the club at which he started his career.

After he joined the exodus of big-name stars from the club in 2012, he spent a year with Besiktas in Turkey before joining Hull and racked up nearly 150 appearances for the Tigers.

McGregor has 38 Scotland caps and his form was rewarded with a recall from Alex McLeish recently.

He played all 46 league games as the Tigers finished 18th.

The veteran goalkeeper has signed a two-year contract at Ibrox Stadium to become manager Steven Gerrard's second signing.

"He is vastly experienced goalkeeper who we feel can add to the options available to us now", Gerrard told the club website.

The 35-year-old only found the back of the net four times for the Cherries in his maiden season with the club and they are believed to be considering allowing him to depart the club on a loan deal as they wish to free up their wage bill.

In his first spell with Rangers he won 11 major trophies, including a hat-trick of league titles in 2009, 2010 and 2011.

With 163 Premier League goals to his name and 20 from 57 England matches, Defoe would certainly represent a marquee capture, and Rangers have hope a deal can be done. We need to make this place [Ibrox] a fortress where nobody wants to come, we need to win games, no matter who you are playing. He spent part of the 2016/17 season on loan at Cardiff City but made the number one spot at the Tigers his own in the Championship this season.
