New signing John Lundstram shares what he thought about Rangers beating Celtic to Scottish Premiership title
Rangers have announced the signing of John Lundstram on a free transfer from Sheffield United, after his Blades contract expired last week. After his move, the midfielder spoke about watching Rangers beat Celtic to the Scottish Premiership title last season.
Lundstram, 27, has left Sheffield United after the Blades were relegated. The Liverpool-born midfielder refused numerous approaches to sign a new deal. Now, he has joined Steven Gerrard’s side. He gives the Gers another dimension in midfield, ahead of a Champions League campaign.
It is the second signing of the summer for Rangers after a deal for Fashion Sakala. Lundstram joins a side with numerous options in midfield, but a team that needs plenty of depth. Having seen Rangers beat Celtic to the title, Lundstram shares what he thought of the title win.
“As an outsider looking in, the scenes last season were unbelievable when the club won the league, and when I saw that, I knew I wanted to be a part of it and be a part of a club which wins more trophies for Rangers,” Lundstram told the official Rangers website, following his arrival.
Lundstram a coup for Rangers – bolsters chances of pipping Celtic to second title
He is a proper signing. Even if Rangers had spent money to get him, he would have been a brilliant signing but the fact they have got him for nothing, is a real coup. A stunning bit of business from Ross Wilson and his team. It gives Rangers the ability to save money and spend elsewhere.
With Steven Davis now 36, Ryan Jack clocking up the injuries and Glen Kamara a target for Premier League clubs, a new midfielder was important. Lundstram, renowned for his work rate, and the odd goal, improves the standard at Ibrox.
