Rangers have confirmed Michael Beale’s first signing as manager as Todd Cantwell moves to Ibrox from Norwich City.

The club say Cantwell has signed a “long-term” deal and the 24-year-old will now form part of Beale’s plans as he aims to reshape the team.

“I am delighted and I feel very proud,” Cantwell told Rangers TV. “This is obviously a massive football club and I am delighted to get going and to get started.

This is a massive club and there is a massive responsibility when you sign for Rangers to be the player that the fans want to see.

“They want to see a player that works hard and a player that can win them games which is very important and that is something I am hoping I can bring.”

Beale was delighted to complete his first major signing. He said: “I am extremely happy to welcome Todd to Rangers. He is a player that is fully aligned to our playing style and we believe he will be a key player for the club in the coming seasons.

“I am looking forward to working with him on the pitch this week and integrating him into our fantastic football club.”

Cantwell is a product of Norwich City’s youth system and after a spell at Fortuna Sittard on loan he returned to establish himself with the Canaries.

A key player with Daniel Farke’s side in the Premiership, he lost his starting position and was loaned to Bournemouth in January last year.

A former England Under-21 international, he is aiming to play regular first team football to get his career back on track. He’ll begin training immediately to compete for a place in Beale’s team.

Sporting director Ross Wilson said: “We are delighted to welcome Todd to Rangers. Michael and I have spent a lot of time talking with Todd, and indeed with others about his quality and what he can bring to our squad.

“We are excited to have him start with the group this week”
