Jon Daly: Irish striker has signed for Rangers as a free agent
Rangers' new signing Jon Daly claims the passion of manager Ally McCoist persuaded him to join the Third Division winners.
The Irishman will make his debut for Rangers in September when the club's 18-month transfer embargo comes to an end.
And the 30-year-old insists he has no problem dropping into the lower leagues in Scottish football.
Daly said: "I've a lot of time for Ally and his coaching staff and to go on to play for them is a big thing.
"When we met for the first time, I could see the passion the manager has for the club and he really wants to drive it forward.
"I didn't really want my agent to speak to any other clubs, I wanted to try to get this deal over the line and thankfully that has happened.
"Having spoken to Ally, there's no doubt where I want to play my football and I'm really excited about what lies ahead.
"I've taken a step back in terms of the level of football I'll be playing but in terms of club size, Rangers are massive.
"There's a huge fanbase and when the chance came up to come here it was a no-brainer for me. It was a challenge I wanted to take on."
