Kirk Broadfoot: Has left Rangers
Kirk Broadfoot has officially left Rangers, bringing his five-year stay with the club to an end.
The former St Mirren player moved to Rangers in 2007 and agreed to stay at Ibrox when the club was relaunched in Division Three this summer but now he is free to find another club.
The 28-year-old has paid tribute Rangers after releasing an official statement through Bridge Litigation UK Solicitors.
It read: "Kirk Broadfoot has agreed to leave Rangers with immediate effect.
"Kirk has thoroughly enjoyed his five years at Rangers winning three league titles and playing in the Champions' League group stages.
"He also played every game in the UEFA Cup run including the final.
"Kirk was glad to assist Rangers by taking a 75 per cent wage reduction which ensured the club's survival to the end of last season.
"Kirk wishes to sincerely thank Ally McCoist for his support throughout a difficult period and the Rangers fans for the great memories.
"He also thanks all of the staff at both Murray Park and Ibrox for their help over the years.
"He genuinely wishes his many friends at Rangers and all connected with the club all the best for this season and beyond."
