James Beattie signs for Rangers

James Beattie has today completed his move to Glasgow Rangers from Stoke City and will go straight into the team to face Kilmarnock this weekend, Beattie has signed a two year contract with Gers.

Beattie's current £35k-a-week salary could of proved to be a stumbling block but Rangers were hopeful of clinching a deal for the 32-year old. Stoke City yesterday shelled out a club record £8million for Sunderland's Kenwyne Jones and with Beattie now off to Rangers they were able to balance their books.

James Beattie added, "I'm delighted to sign for a club like Glasgow Rangers and it was quite a quick deal as far as I'm concerned,"

"I came to Ibrox on Thursday morning and was met by the gaffer and (chief executive) Martin Bain.

Beattie said, "They showed me around the stadium, which was magnificent and you can see it is a club steeped in history. I then walked out on to the pitch, which was magnificent. The walk out, even when the stadium was empty, was something so I'm looking forward to walking out when it's full.

"There was interest from other clubs but when you come here and speak to Walter Smith and have a look around, the decision was easy."
