Rangers have opened their arms to former Aberdeen star Connor Barron who has signed a four-year deal with the Glasgow club.

The 21-year-old midfielder has moved from Pittodrie to Govan after his contract came to an end, paving the way for a stint with the Light Blues.

In his career so far, the young footballer made over 50 appearances for Aberdeen since making his debut in 2022.

Barron has also represented Scotland at Under-16, Under-19 and, most recently, Under-21 level, where he has started each of the side’s last five Under-21 European Championship qualifying clashes.

He said: "I am absolutely delighted. As soon as I started talking to the club I knew that this was the place for me to come. Everything seemed right and I think it is the best place for me to be at this moment of my career.
