Bournemouth fans react to Rangers signing Jack Simpson on pre-contract deal

Rangers have completed the signing of Bournemouth defender Jack Simpson on a pre-contract deal.

The Gers confirmed on their official website that they have signed the centre-back on a pre-contact agreement, which means he’ll move to Ibrox in the summer and remain with Bournemouth for the rest of this season.

Simpson is a 6ft 4in defender that has come through the academy ranks at English Championship side Bournemouth.

The 24-year-old has had a brief taste of Premier League football with 10 top-flight games in his career, but this campaign he’s part of a team trying to achieve promotion from the second-tier.

With his contract expiring at the end of this season, Rangers have swooped to snap him up and he’ll be playing Scottish football later in the calendar year.

A selection of Bournemouth supporters on social media are not too downbeat about Simpson’s confirmed exit.

He’s played 12 matches across all competitions this campaign and is a physical centre-half, but is not a regular in the XI if everybody is fit.

Rangers already have a decent amount of options in the heart of their defence, but manager Steven Gerrard has shown the value in strength in depth and has heavily rotated at times this season.

Here are some Bournemouth fans discussing Simpson:
