Rangers have signed defender Danny Wilson on a three-year deal from Hearts as new boss Mark Warburton begins building his squad.
The 23-year-old returns to Ibrox for a second spell, five years after leaving the Light Blues to move to Liverpool before his return to Scotland at Tynecastle.
Wilson told the Rangers website: "When the manager got the job I thought it was a good appointment and I was really happy when he gave me the call to come in.
“I’ve only spoken with him briefly but I’ve been very impressed by what he’s had to say. In an ideal world, Rangers would be in the top flight but, as it is, we aren’t just now and we need to put in the work to get ourselves there. I was in the Championship last season and the team managed to go up so hopefully it will be more of the same this season.”
Rangers, who begin the new season at home to St Mirren on the weekend of August 8, have also announced the signing of 24-year-old central defender Rob Kiernan from Wigan Athletic.
Kiernan, who had a brief loan spell at Kilmarnock in 2010, spent the second half of last season at Birmingham City and has played for a number of other clubs, including Watford and Brentford.
Warburton told the club website: "I'm delighted to get hold of Rob. He's a boy I know very well from Watford - he's passionate about playing football and is technically gifted.
“He played comfortably in the Championship last year down south, and had offers to go back there, but when he heard about this here you could hear immediately his excitement."
