The Irishman will make his debut for Rangers in September when the club's 18-month transfer embargo comes to an end.

And the 30-year-old insists he has no problem dropping into the lower leagues in Scottish football.

Daly said: "I've a lot of time for Ally and his coaching staff and to go on to play for them is a big thing.

"When we met for the first time, I could see the passion the manager has for the club and he really wants to drive it forward.

"I didn't really want my agent to speak to any other clubs, I wanted to try to get this deal over the line and thankfully that has happened.

"Having spoken to Ally, there's no doubt where I want to play my football and I'm really excited about what lies ahead.

"I've taken a step back in terms of the level of football I'll be playing but in terms of club size, Rangers are massive.

"There's a huge fanbase and when the chance came up to come here it was a no-brainer for me. It was a challenge I wanted to take on."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
