Stevie Smith: Back at Ibrox

Stevie Smith: Back at Ibrox

The 27-year-old has been a free agent since he left MLS side Portland Timbers towards the end of 2012.

The defender, who left Ibrox in 2010 after breaking through as a youngster, has signed a two-year deal which will come into effect from September 1.

Smith and the other new signings will be able to appear as trialists before September as Rangers are banned from registering players until after the closure of the summer transfer window

Smith has already met up with many of the current Light Blues squad after Rangers boss Ally McCoist granted him use of the Murray Park training facilities following his return from the US.

The Scotland B international joins goalkeeper Cammy Bell, midfielders Nicky Law and Arnola Peralta, and forwards Jon Daly and Nicky Clark in agreeing moves to the Scottish third division champions.

The move has already been welcomed by Rangers forward David Templeton, who posted on his official Twitter site: "Glad to see @Steven26Smith has signed today! Top lad and very good footballer."

After coming through the youth ranks, Smith made his professional debut back in November 2004 in a 3-2 win over Hearts.

He played 64 times for the club in his first spell before moving to Norwich City in 2010 before turning out for Aberdeen, Preston North End and Portland.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
