Rangers have completed the signing of free agent winger Sone Aluko after agreeing compensation with Aberdeen.
The Dons were entitled to a fee if he joined another Scottish team even though he left Pittodrie over the summer.
The Nigeria international joined Gers on trial and he impressed sufficiently for manager Ally McCoist to agree a package to secure his signature permanently.
The 22-year-old will see out the SPL season with the Light Blues after penning a deal until the end of the campaign.
Aluko will help fill the void vacated by Scotland international Steven Naismith, who misses the remainder of the season due to a knee injury.
The former Birmingham City youngster could now make his Rangers debut in their weekend clash against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.
Aluko, who has 'bent over backwards' to help secure the transfer, has wasted little time stoking the Old Firm fire, stating that Rangers are the biggest team in Scotland.
"It's good to be here," he told Blues news. "It was great to get everything sorted out and as soon as I got the opportunity to come here, it was what I wanted.
"Anyone who has played in Scotland for longer than five minutes knows all about Rangers and Celtic and this is the biggest team in the country in my opinion.
"I had three days to wait before I actually got to come here for my trial so I'd had a chance to calm down by the time I arrived.
"I've not played a lot in the last four months but I knew that if I got an opportunity like this I had to be ready for it so I've kept working hard.
"I've almost bent over backwards to be here. Once I got the chance, I was adamant I wanted to be at Rangers and I can't thank the people around me enough for helping me get here.
"Now I'm ready to play if the manager needs me. I'll do that any time and although I'm a bit behind the boys, I'll do my best and give my all."
