    Michael Beale has completed his first signing as Rangers boss by bringing in Todd Cantwell from Norwich.

    Rangers say the 24-year-old has signed a ‘long-term deal’. The versatile attacking player made 129 appearances for Norwich, winning two Championship titles and playing in the Premier League.

    Cantwell also helped Bournemouth win promotion to the Premier League during a loan spell last season and had a temporary stint at Fortuna Sittard in the Netherlands earlier in his career.

    Cantwell said: ‘I am delighted and I feel very proud. This is a massive football club and I am delighted to get going. There is a massive responsibility when you sign for Rangers to be the player that the fans want to see. They want to see a player that works hard and can win them games which is very important and that is something I am hoping I can bring.’

    ‘It is a very important stage of my career and a very important move. The manager laid out exactly what it is they like about me and what they want. The chance to play in Europe and to win trophies, that’s why I am here.’

    Cantwell will wear the No.13 shirt, and added: ‘I don’t think the number 13 is an unlucky number. You make your own luck.’

    Beale added: ‘I am extremely happy to welcome Todd to Rangers. He is a player that is fully aligned to our playing style and we believe he will be a key player in the coming seasons.’

    Meanwhile, Rangers will travel to Easter Road to face Hibs on Wednesday, March 8 in a rearranged Premiership match due to a fixture clash with the Viaplay Cup final at the end of next month when the Ibrox side will face Celtic at Hampden.
