Gareth McAuley has become Steven Gerrard 15th summer signing after the former West Brom defender agreed a one-year deal with Rangers.

The 38-year-old has been a free agent since leaving the Hawthorns in the summer but now becomes the latest new face at Ibrox as Gerrard continues his rebuilding job.

The Northern Ireland international won 79 caps for his country and was part of Michael O'Neill's squad at Euro 2016.

Gerrard has already signed centre-backs Connor Goldson, Nikola Katic and Joe Worrall since taking over the Light Blues but felt he needed a fourth defender for cover after guiding Rangers into the Europa League group stages.

"The street I was born on, the kerbs are painted red, white and blue, so to get the opportunity to play for this famous club is amazing.

"I'm delighted to be here. I feel very honoured to be here and privileged as well.

"I hope to bring experience. There is a young group of players here and hopefully I can help them with my knowledge, develop them and challenge them to play in the team."
