Greg Docherty has completed a transfer from Rangers to Hull City after the clubs agreed a deal worth £350,000 plus add-ons.

The midfielder has signed a three-year contract with the English League One side ahead of their new season.

Docherty moved to Ibrox from Hamilton Accies in 2018 and initially enjoyed first team football but he found himself increasingly marginalised after the arrival of Steven Gerrard as manager.

The 23-year-old had successful loan spells with Shrewsbury and Hibernian but was told that he did not have a long-term future at Rangers.

Hull head coach Grant McCann said: “We’re delighted to have added Greg to the group because he’ll bring a different dynamic to our midfield.

“He’s got great energy, has the ability to go from box-to-box and boasts a wide passing range. On top of that, he’ll provide a real threat in the final third of the pitch with his ability to both score and create goals.

“Despite only being 23-years-of-age, he’s very level headed and mature. I’m excited to start working with Greg on the back of the conversations I’ve had with him over the past couple of days, which have been really encouraging.

“He’s coming here with a real hunger and desire to want to show people how good he is.”

Gerrard confirmed on Sunday Docherty had been allowed to discuss a move.

 “We are waiting for Greg to make a decision,” he said. “Hull are at the table with a good deal and opportunity for him.

“It’s not going to work for Greg at Rangers so we are waiting on his decision.”
