Rangers’ new signing delivers stern warning to Celtic

New Rangers signing Bruno Alves has issued a warning to Celtic by claiming that he does not settle for second best.

The veteran defender joined Rangers from Italian club Cagliari and becomes manager Pedro Caixinho’s first signing at the club after a transfer fee of £500,000 was reached with the Italian club.

The Portugal international Alves will bring in much needed leadership and maturity to the Rangers squad as they look to reassert themselves as a dominant force within Scottish football.

Alves, who was a member of the Portugal squad which won Euro 2016, will aim to use his vast experience to restore a winning mentality to the Rangers squad and said, “I’m very happy to join the club and I will do my best to win. That’s the main reason I came here.

“I have this desire to win and moving here will bring this back to me and my career. At almost all the clubs I played at I was a winner and I expect to win here for the fans and for the club.”

The Gers have also been linked with potential moves for Aberdeen’s Ryan Jack, Hearts’ Jamie Walker and Norwich’s Graham Dorrans as they look to rebuild their squad this summer.
